Great bowl of chili. I also added lots of cumin (love it!). I made one change: The only canned "chili beans" I could find were pintos, and we prefer kidney beans, so I used those and added more of the chili powder, garlic and cumin, and added a can of diced tomatoes. Made for Fall 2008 PAC.

We love chili and I've made many different kinds, and this is a great one! The spice was right on with the green chilis and jalapenos, and I used lots of cumin because I love the flavor. I halved the recipe and it still made a lot. Thanks for posting this yummy chili recipe!
