    breezermom's Note:

    This serves a lot, so feel free to half the recipe. This is not overly hot unless you add the optional jalapenos and cayenne pepper. Prep time does not include the 8 hours to soak the beans.

      Yummm, chili :D. I made it using vegie crumbles for the meat with all else being the same and it came out great. Really hit the spot last evening after a full afternoon of freezing rain. Topped with some fat reduced cheddar it was filling and oh so yummy. Had to use red bell pepper as that is what I had on hand. This is a marvelous, from scratch, chili to be made on a day when your home and want to say "I made it for you".
