This is fantastic chili, a little spicy but not overly hot. If making it for a crowd just double the ingredients. It can be made the day before and warmed up in the crock pot. serve with corn bread or crusty rolls. don't let the long list of ingredients scare you, most are spices and it is really easy to put together.
