      This recipe is the first Chili Con Carne I've ever made that didn't have beans. I followed this recipe to the letter except I included the seeds from the jalapeno chilies because I prefer my Chili to have some heat. This has to be the best Chili I've made or tasted. The red onions at the end add a very nice sweet and crunchy texture in your mouth too. The only thing I will do the next time I make this recipe - make a loaf of toasted garlic bread on the side. This one is a keeper for my next Poker night.
