*This is a 10 star recipe* I love you Dave! I'm AMAZED that this is one of the best chilis I've ever had and there's no bacon or fatty ground beef. I followed the instructions exactly and wouldn't change a thing! Even though I removed the chili pepper seeds this is *quite spicy* though so beware if that's not your thing (we love it!) The Nutrition Facts are even better than they look too; this is much more than eight servings. I think my husband thought I was having the entire Orlando Magic team over with how much it made, and I'm thrilled to now have these leftovers in the freezer for quick meals. Thanks for a new favorite recipe.
Wow, super delicious! I think the coffee and cocoa are the secret ingredients in this. I don't care for beer, so substituted red wine, and used jalapenos instead of habaneros to make it less spicy. I cooked it for 2.5 hours, and it had a very rich deep flavor. I think veggie crumbles would be a good sub if you wanted to make this vegetarian. A definite new favorite!
