This dish is pleasing to the eye and to the palate! You can easily adjust the spices to suit your taste, and add Tabasco or hot pepper sauce if you'd like more heat. I usually serve my chili over corn chips, topped with shredded cheese and sour cream. This recipe is always a bit hit at potlucks!

This is really good because -- like most chili recipes -- you can alter it to make it even better. I used ground turkey but to flavor it up, I added five slices of crispy bacon, chopped, and about 8 ounces of diced Chourico. Also threw in some bay leaves. Topped with a tablespoon of light sour cream per serving, shredded Mexican cheese, and -- yum -- chopped cilantro. Wonderful!

We enjoyed this! Made some modifications to the recipe, but I especially liked the cinnamon and nutmeg. Added something just a little different than your typical chili recipe, but it was really a nice flavor!
