Best chili I've made. I had a little trouble cooking the black beans the first time (didn't seem to soften no matter how much I cooked them), so I substituted 2 cans of precooked beans per pound. This will become a regular.
This is a great chili. I made a few changes to a double recipe. I substituted venison tenderloin, boar chops and ground elk which were all grilled over apple wood, canned black beans and a teaspoon and a half of habenero pepper flakes were added. The entire list of ingredients were heated in a skillet, portions at a time, then cooked overnight in a large crock pot. This chili won a second place trophy in a chili cookoff.
I made a few changes-added more chili powder and cumin and some cayenne pepper, and sauteed and cooked the green pepper with the onions. Also had great luck using canned black beans. This is unbelievably good!!!! Better double the receipe.
