Dragon's Breath Chili

Kelsey "Rose" Jones


This chili is a very spicy and thick almost stew like. The co-op across the street loved it. I will warn you that this should be served with a generous amount of cornbread, crackers, hot rolls and possibly some cheese in case some one needs a spicy mouth rescue. This chili fires up the mouth membranes and the tongue but does not seem to hold the burn all the way down, which is good for those with ulcers (me included). Hence the name Dragon’s Breath Chili. Also note I make this with mostly canned products. However, I slow simmer my chili for a full day then cool it and reheat it the second day to make it the best. Isn’t chili always better the second day?
