    This chile is spicy and hot, and can be used to fill burritos. Notice this is "CHILE" which usually means southwestern style, using chiles, instead of 'chili' which is used back east.

      I used this recipe but made some changes -- don't know if it's fair to review it. It turned out great though, and it's due to the hearty meat and spice mixture that is the foundation of this recipe. I used 2.5 pounds of both meats, browned them and poured off the liquid. Sauted onion and garlic then and added meat back -- this got rid of a lot of fat. I also added 3 cans black beans (I like beans in chili) and 1 can of corn. Used 5 cans of beef broth (low salt). Spice changes: 1 T new mexico chile powder extra and 5 or 6 tallicherry black peppercorns. I wanted the chili the day I made it, so I didn't do the refrigerations step; I added the cornmeal and lime shortly before serving.
