About 10 years ago on Calling all Cooks on Food Network, I saw this recipe and had to make it. It is totally amazing!! Not your typical chili. So many levels of flavors. Sorry for no picture (we've started remodeling our house and I don't have a kitchen). This would be excellent on this cold cloudy day :-)
