This is a mild mannered chili for my Californian husband. I used to try and sneak a jalapeno into foods but he would always notice the heat. If you like it hotter add red pepper to taste or any of your other favorite hot seasonings to convert this into the Superman version. Also, I like to come up with recipes that use complete cans of food. With only the two of us, partial cans and boxes of foods usually end up being thrown away. I also like to make a lot and freeze some for later. This chili is really good served over rice with finely minced onions and shredded cheddar cheese as toppers. Make sure you make this chili a day ahead so the flavors can meld together for a truly tasty experience.
