“Warning...this is spicy! This is a good warm chili for cold winter nights, just be cautious about the spice mixture. If you are not big on spicy foods, reduce the jalapenos (or eliminate them), along with the cayenne. The honey adds a slightly sweet flavor, you can add extra honey if you find it is too hot, but make sure you add it slowly.”
