First, I would like to have given this 3.5 stars, but it doesn't work that way here. I followed the recipe exactly, and it was pretty good for "me" but I knew my family would not like it as much as I did. It definitely is not your normal chili, which is fine. But the flavors do catch you off guard, or at least they did to me, even seeing the spices. Anyway, I did like it, but didn't love it. To make my family enjoy it I added 1 cup of ketchup after it was made. I just stirred it in. And everybody ended up liking it.
