“I finally had to try coming up with my own chili recipe--as I always seem to make so many changes to others! I hope that you enjoy! This isn't quite as spicy as I like it--but it is a good compromise for those who like and don't like their chili super spicy. Please add additional chili powder and chipotle sauce as you like!”
