      Hi Uncle Bill, This was my first time making chili with chunks of beef(in my case a boneless blade roast), and it was wonderful. I,too, made it the day before so the flavours could meld. Only change I made was to omit the mushrooms- can't envision them in chili, and added some pureed chipotle chiles for a little more depth of heat. Thanks for a great comfort meal ;-).

      Really great chili. Left out shrooms and used venison (no one knew). Also did not add the cayenne. Wonderful. :] Thanks for sharing.

      Did everything as written, except the mushrooms. Left it on to simmer all day long. Enjoyed it for dinner and the leftovers are going in the freezer for later.
