This chili has all my favorite ingredients. Changed a couple things, increased the beef & garlic abit, sub'd in regular sugar & added 1/2 of a chopped jalapeno & meat from 1 italian sausage. I made this for company so I didn't want it real hot & spicy, it worked perfectly even with the extra jalapeno. I also changed up the cooking process, sauted the fresh vegys 2-3 mins before adding the canned goods etc. I find this is an important step, especially due to the garlic. The chili was very tasty & I got lots of compliments on it, thanks for sharing.
