This is the best chili! I made it twice, the second time I substituted beer for the water and added some pureed chipotle peppers - it was even more awesome!

Simply the best chili! The only thing I changed was, I substituted beer for the water, as MG suggested. I let this simmer on the stove for a couple of hours, it smelled wonderful while it was cooking. I knew this was a winner, but BF has already requested it agian, and I just made it two days ago, so it was definately a hit. The flavor of this chili was just awesome! You MUST try this! Definately a keeper Cher!

Fantastic! Very complex layers of flavor. Couldn't be easier to make.
