    Mups's Note:

    This recipe is my Dad's recipe that he's been making for years. It is always a hit in our house and one of my favorite dishes. This chili is pretty spicy, so if you can't take the heat, reduce the amount of red pepper and cayenne pepper. Last thing -- you have to have this chili over rice, otherwise it's just not complete! Enjoy!

      This chili was great! I made some changes based on our taste and what I had in the house. I used 1lb. ground beef and 1lb. chorizo (can use sausage & its better if its not in the casing = less work). I didn't have the cayenne, chipotle or red pepper so I used hot sauce instead. I cut the chili powder to 2 Tbsp and added 1 Tbsp cumin. I used fresh tomatoes too. Thanks for the recipe! We really enjoyed it and I'll definately pass this on to friends.
