Cowboy Chili

I've been making this chili for years and it just keeps getting better. The london broil instead of ground beef makes it so hearty and mixing your own chili powders just makes it. There are a lot of chili recipes out there, and I know mine calls for a lot of ingredients, but try this and I promise you will not be disappointed. If you don't like spicy cut back on the amount of chili powder and fresh peppers. This Chili does have a bit of a kick.
