      This is such a delicious chili! I scraped the seeds out of the jalapenos so the chili wasn't too spicy for a wimp like me.

      I made this chili for the first time and enterd it in our work chili contest. I won! People loved the unique flavors. If you make it, people will say it is the most unique chili they have had.

      Was going to post this today from when I got it off of FoodTV, Calling all Cooks, the recipe was courtesy of Cid Prevost - If I remember from the show she won awards for this chili. From the original recipe I always drain the fat/juice from the chorizo and hamburger as I found that it was just too greasy with it. Even when I simmer it for a long time I remind my self to dig out the "chunkies" (jalepeno, bay leaves & cinnamon) as I didn't once and the Jalepeno broke apart and my sister got the stem in her bowl (how embarrasing). Don't let be affaid to try this different recipe - it's so worth it!! A great change from "regular" chili!
