    VNess's Note:

    Courtesy of the Oregonian- we make two chilis at my house: one for the vegetarians and one for the meatetarians. Omnivores can just mix. This is also good with the addition of some veggies, such as zucchini or other squashes, carrots, potato, corn, bell peppers, or whatever else you may want to add. Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream, and/or green onions

      This was pretty good, I made it for my boyfriend for Father's Day, omitting the onion since he is a strict carnivore. We all went back for seconds, but as one of the other reviewers mentioned, there was a slightly off flavor. My boyfriend thinks is was the cocoa powder, but we're going to play around with it a bit more.

      We thought this one was just "ok". There was a weird flavor that I couldn't put my finger on but I'm pretty sure it was the cinnamon. This just really didn't taste like chili to us, but we're from Texas so were very specific. I ate a bowl and he ate a bowl, but it didn't make it to left-overville. Sorry. Hubby did think the texture and consistency were great, maybe the flavor is just foreign to us.

      I made this with 1-lb ground beef and 1-lb mild italian sausage (it was the only meats I had on hand). Very flavorful and hearty chili. Great for the people who are not keen on lots of tomato.
