    SweetPeaNC's Note:

    This chili recipe took me two years to perfect. It's just a basic beef chili, but it's really good! Try substituting ground turkey--it works great too. Doubling or tripling this recipe is no problem. I always do so I can freeze some. It reheats amazingly well! Fair warning--this chili is pretty spicy! You can lower the spice by using milder peppers instead of the jalapenos. It's also easy to increase the heat--we add a another teaspoon of red pepper and a whole cascabel pepper (remove before serving) with the rest of the spices. Additional diced jalapenos or some habaneros also work great.

      This is really good chili. I cut recipe in half and subbed ground turkey for the beef. Only thing I would change is to add more cumin, as we really like the flavor of it in chili. Heat was just right. Made for Fall 2012 PAC game.

      Great tasting chili, even if I did make a few changes (mostly cutting back on several ingredients) ~ I used just 1 1/2 jalapeno peppers (seeded), 2 teaspoons each of the chipotle powder & cumin, just 1 tablespoon of the chili powder, & left out the salt. Seems like a lot of changes, but I know it would have been way to hot for me & mine, as wold have been the sodium level, although I did use low-sodium beans & tomatoes! Thanks for a wonderful chili treat! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
