I've been making chili for about 5 years now for Sunday football games. I've played with the recipe week to week, and have settled on this as my final recipe. I recently switched to ground pork, and think it makes a better chili than ground beef. The key here is lots of cumin. I add a lot of the cumin at the end of the boil to retain it's aromatic qualities.

- 2 poblano chiles
- 1 -2 green chili (2 for hot)
