AWESOME ~ WONDERFUL ~ FABULOUS FLAVOR !!! I don't know what else to say ~ this was SOOOO very delicious. This recipe filled the house with a mouth-watering aroma the whole time it was cooking ~ couldn't wait to dig into it :) BTW ~ had to skip the mushrooms (personal preference), but other than that, made exactly as written, and used hot italian turkey sausage and grass-fed beef. I made this chili for a 'sister' get-together and served it with toasted sunflower-seed bread. Into the keeper cookbook with this one for sure !! Thanks bmcnichol, made for MY 3 CHEFS, November 2009!
