Recipe by Karen From Colorado
A unique chili using a mixture of meats. It is spicy and loaded with flavor. The name of this recipe used to be Chili Colorado, but I challenged my new friend, Chef #383557, to make and rename the recipe for me after he pointed out that it was not a typical Chili Colorado recipe. (Please see his delightful review. I changed the measurement of the stew meat because if his review and because I also prefer more of this meat in my chili. I also like his idea for marinading the stew meat.) It was all in good fun and I am pleased with the new name. Thank you Bruce! Thank you also too all the reviewers of this recipe.

Some like it HOT some like it COLD some like it....WOW was this HOT and I did not add the jalapeno juice or Tabasco sauce! But is it ever good and thick! Three out of five of us could eat it this hot. I'll make this one again using one jalapenos pepper. It cost a little over $11.98 to make not adding in the spices, onion, bell pepper or celery. Thanks Karen!
