I love chili. Created this for the Super Bowl. Added just a bit of jalapeno to give it a little kick. I like the "wow" factor but not enough to knock me to the floor, if you know what I mean. I think beans make the chili so I don't cheat on them. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and watch the game.
