    Chef Acosta's Note:

    We moved to a street that apparently has an annual chili cook-off, and this was the recipe I came up with for our first submission! I studied recipes for hours before creating this recipe and wrote down exactly how and when we added them. It turned out absolutely delicious, and had a really complex flavor. Alas, there ultimately was no voting or prizes handed out, but we really think that this was one of the best. We only used one (albeit giant) jalapeno, but would probably add one or two more next time to make it spicier. I am also adding a couple topping recipes that our neighbor served with his chili, that were so good they should just be served with every chili!
