This is a very good chili. You can make it spicier if you like by adding more jalepeno, habnero, or some cayenne, but I like it just like this.

This was fantastic! My boys (18 and 15) loved it. I used Andouille sausage instead of Chorizo, used only 1 pound of each meat, used a 15-ounce can of chopped green chilis instead of the jalapenos, and substituted a can of beef broth for the beer. I also used canned instead of frozen corn. I served it with Fritos. This recipe was pretty easy to make, very flavorful, and it was a huge hit with my teenage boys. One of them said it was the best he's had. Thanks!
