When it comes to chili I am an addict. I see a recipe I try it. This recipe is an accumulation of what worked in all those attempts. It is a great recipe.

Loved this recipe. I doubled the recipe as I had quite a few people over. It was very tasty, with a nice little bite to it. Thank you for sharing
