Impera Magna, this chili tastes great! I used ground beef and halved the recipe. Also used three jalapenos because we like our chili spicy. My boyfriend requested that I add some bell peppers next time but I thought it was fine as is. This simmered on the stove all afternoon - we both had a bowl (or two) for lunch and it was hard work to save some for my father to try when he paid a visit later on that day. Looking forward to making up a huge batch and popping it in the freezer.
