The greatest chili I've ever...EVER...made. So rich and flavorful without hardly any spiciness. Don't fear all those peppers. They are FLAVOR!

Wonderful recipe that I tried after seeing Guy prepare it on his show. This gave me the nice, thick "pub style" chili I had been searching for. Easy to prep, easy to make disappear. Friends gave it multiple thumbs up.

Thanks for posting this recipe. It does take a lot of prep work, but the flavor is good. I broiled the chilis in the oven, and the skin slipped right off once they turned black. This is something that needs to sit overnight in the fridge for the flavors to really come together. It was very hot the first day, but by day 3 was very flavorful with only a touch of heat. If I make this again, we'll use more chilis. I also did not feel the chuck or sausage were really necessary for the flavor. I would only use ground beef next time. This was entered into a chili cook off at my husbands work (with Marines) and out of 8 entries made 2nd place. A non traditional chili won, one with corn in it.
