fantastic recipe - red wine marinade really kicked it up. i adapted the recipe a bit - left out the chili starter and simply added more beans and tomatoes. i also left out the taco seasoning as it was just an extra expense and just seasoned up the meat as i cooked it with cayenne pepper, chili powder, red pepper, salt/black pepper, cumin and a dash of curry powder. for meat, i used the 1/2 lb ground beef, 4 chicken andouille sausages, and 2 mexican chorizo. the combo was a big hit on game day!
