    Chef #443166's Note:

    OK I tend to think my recipe's are beyond better than most (dont we all??), but this chili is amazing. There is so much intense deep flavor going on. If anyone has any suggestions or additions, dont hesitate to post them. But this is far beyond the best chili ive ever made or eaten, and it gets those reviews from anyone who eats it. The spices are more guestimates, since I never measure - cook to your own taste.

      Wonderful recipe! I definitely arranged the spices to my liking, but not too much - you are right, a good cook must cook to their tastes. The other comment complaining about cinnimon - I really dont understand the complaint? Many cooks, professional chefs, add cinnimon and even chocolate into their chili - ever heard of Cincinatti chili? The cinnimon is in no way overpowering - you cannot smell it or taste anything resembling cinnimon. It seems to me that person didnt even attempt to make the chili, just posted a bogus comment because they "think" something shouldnt be added. But thats the norm on recipe sites. The cinnimon balances out the flavors and adds a warmness to the dish. I did use canned chipotles in adobo (i like more heat) and doubled the cumin. Loved the different bell peppers too, good color and taste - and the beer really deepens the flavor. I would definitely recommend this!

      OK..This chili wasn't too bad. However, Cinnamon DOES NOT belong in chili. I figured since the recipe called for 1tsp of cinnamon it wouldn't be so bad. I WAS WRONG. Cinnamon is so over-powering its all I could smell while cooking, normally I wouldn't complain, who doesn't like the smell of cinnamon? BUT NOT IN CHILI. I would recommend this recipe but NOT the cinnamon. PLEASE LEAVE IT OUT!
