“This recipe was built upon the crock pot brand 'Signature Chili.' This is a spicy chili. To change the amount of heat you want, you can change the number of jalapenos and habaneros that you use. Note that habaneros are more hot than jalapenos. To increase the heat you can also not seed the jalapenos and habaneros, just place in the blender once you remove the stems. I recommend serving it with at least the sour cream, as it levels the amount of spice out. Serve with sour cream and cheese over rice or noodles. Make it healthy by using ground chicken or turkey breast and serving over brown rice with light/fat free sour cream and low fat cheese.”
