      Made this for TOTM Forum Soup-Fest tag game 2011 after seeing "Tinkerbell"s picture. I am so glad I did. I followed the instructions except for adding some cumin and leaving out the yellow cornmeal. I have never added celery seeds in my chili but it adds just a hint of more flavor. Delicious!

      This was a huge hit last night! I planned on making it but didn't plan on company. At the last minute I found out we'd be having some and this recipe saved the day! It was super fast for homemade chili (I had soaked and cooked dried kidney beans the day before) and then it fed 5 hearty-eating men, two women and a toddler. I did have to cut out a couple ingredients to make it gluten-free. I couldn't find smoked sausage that I was certain didn't have some form of gluten in the flavorings, and the cornmeal had to be left out (processed on same equipment as wheat). Everyone loved the flavor of this recipe, and I know why... I have a LOVE of celery seed and usually drop a little into any recipe I can, but this recipe called for plenty and it's one of the reasons I wanted to make it. My family had no idea what that "good spice" was, but I did. :) Thanks for sharing your recipe, Lady! Made & enjoyed for Topic of the Month forum's Soup-Fest 2011 tag game!
