When I was invited to the World's Food Championship in Las Vegas I discovered that I was being thrown into new Chili ground...Competition Red style chili.
I had been reading chili books like the bible and came up with this number.
It's sure to please! Yumm!

This recipe, however, is not compete. I have excluded some items so I don't reveal my recipe before the competition. I will update after Nov. 5th.
