I'm quite the "Chili Head" known locally as having the ability to eat nuclear waste, needless to say, I like it hot. As to not kill my friends and family, or judges, I seek that perfect medium, that most everyone likes. Traditional red doesn't have all the other fun stuff so, you'll have to check out my Anything Goes Chili recipe to see what I do there.

The combination of meats is what makes this chili recipe so special. I did grill what I could in this recipe because grilling just adds to the depth of flavor. Don't be scared by the cup of chili powder. You'd think it would be overwhelming, but the spices are just perfect and blend together. Serve this to guests and plan for them to go back for a second bowl.

Note: Since Lori didn't state an exact amount, we chose to roast three bell peppers. The Test Kitchen
