    Jim N.'s Note:

    I started this recipe a lot of years ago, and have changed and improved it (I hope) a lot of times. My mother recently made a batch with this recipe and entered it in a contest where it won (in Yuma, and I think they KNOW their chili down there!) What makes this great, I believe, is the use of almost all fresh ingredients, keeping canned items to a minimum. Using FRESH vegetables, I believe, is the real key, especially if they are certified organic! Depending on the specific jalapenos, it will be mild to medium spicy.
