The addition of taco sauce makes this recipe stand out, I used Old El Paso spicy for this but any brand will do. I advise you to make this chili a day in advance, it will give the flavors a chance to blend even further. You can adjust the seasonings to taste.

This is a very nice chili recipe. I minced up some of the jalepeno seeds and added them in the first step to increase the heat.
