Recipe by NicoletteL
I love chili, and fall is here, even though it's still hot (lol), so I looked around for some recipes, but I couldn't quite find the spices that I wanted in it. So I meshed some together and got this. It is so good, put some tortilla chips on the bottom of the bowl, some chili and top with some cheddar cheese and some sour cream. It's a def. a comfort food. And, as with most comfort foods, it always tastes better the next day. :) Add or subtract the cayenne for your own tastes.
