This is almost the same as #32436 with the exception that it shows the amounts. I changed a couple things but the recipe is basically the same THANKS Sparkle for the starting point. IT'S AWESOME !!!!!!!! However it blows the calories to heck. With 8 servings it comes to 466 cal. with 6 servings it's 621 cal. Guess you guys will figure this out from the ingredients.

This is an ok chili, not a big fan of itthough. The flavor does improve on sitting. Definitely don't taste before simmering as the flavor is very harsh. Seemed like all ground meat and beans, not near enough tomato stuff. Not hot spicy at all, I added a bit of hot sauce to my bowl of chili.
I loved the flavour of this recipe, but agree with Dana. That must be a typo with the water, I suggest just covering the ingredients with water, and letting it cook all day. I made it for a large family gathering and they all loved it. I used scotch instead of tequila, as we didn't have any, and of course a beer. I think that's a great ingredient for many different types of sauces, it really helps to bring the flavours out. Thanks Somers!
I will not say that this recipe makes terrible chili, but I made it for a group and got very low feedback from all the folks who tried it. It was likened to canned chili. Personally, I did not care for it, but I really like chili to have a lot of kick and I am not a beer drinker and found the beer/tequilla flavor objectionable. IMHO the recipe is okay, but if you have a tried/true recipe, just use it instead.
