A recipe I began "modifying" years ago when I got it from a relative. I believe it has been tweaked until absolutely perfect. there are 2 distinct seperate groups of chili fanatics in the world that differ greatly in their opinions of the perfect chili. some like it sweet, some like it spicy. This recipe will have both coming back for more! The initial mild sweetness slowly gives way to a smoky spicy flavor that really only comes on slowly after you swallow. Not to worry, the chipotle spice is easily doused with a beverage of your choice. 2 year consecutive winner in local Chili Cookoff Seville Quarter, Pensacola. Enjoy.
