I have had this written down for years. My son and I love it. DH and daughter thought it was on the HOT side. This is really good! We like it served on top of rice with the Pinto beans on the side. Hope you enjoy!

WOW IS THIS CHILI EXTRA HOT! I made this a bit different with pork tenderloin and for the ancho chilis I used about 1 Tbsp chilis in adobo. I did use the crushed red pepper flakes, but just half of the amount called for. This chili was too hot for me and Buddha who can't seem to get enough heat in chili said it was too hot. You definitely need to be a fire eater for this chili. Thanks for sharing the recipe, it sure is a hoot to finally make something for DH that he says is too hot. A rarity, lol.
