      I thought this was delicious chili. Clear, easy instructions and the chili got better and better as it simmered. We like things with zip, so I did use all four jalapenos, although I did cut down the amount of cayenne slightly (I'd rather add more to each serving later). I did not have whole cumin seeds, so I used ground cumin instead and I left out the beans, since my family doesn't care for beans in chili. All in all, a very tasty dish that would be great for a Superbowl party. Next time, I may toss everything into a crock pot after the meat has browned - I think this would adapt quite well for the crockpot.

      I'm sorry FlemishMinx, but there were just too many bitter notes in this. I think the combo of bitter beer, coffee and cocoa powder were too much for us. We eat a lot of chili, and although there were things about your recipe we did enjoy, I don't think we will be making it again. Being Australian, I don't think we can eat our chili as hot as you, so I cut the cayenne back to 1/2 teaspoon, and the jalepenos back to 2-perfect for us. The recipe was well written and easy to follow-just too bitter.
