Excellent thread!! And gattaca, your recipe looks very good and similar to my mother’s recipe. She made the best darn chili in the world IMO, but when she passed away, so did her exact recipe. Please tell me how spicy (hot!) your chili is.
Thanks! To me is not very spicy, but you can add the spices bit by bit to your taste. This is just a guide, you can tweak it to your taste, different color peppers, etc. You can add a can of water if you like it thinner too.
Sorry to hear about your mother’s passing.
