I came up with this recipe after tweaking many different recipes. The base recipe I worked with was Marty Hugo's Chili #11149, which is a great recipe. The twist in this recipe is some brown sugar and lime juice added at the end. The sugar adds just a touch of sweetness and the lime brightens the chili up.
