This recipe makes one awesome chili! It's so much fresher-tasting than the kind I've made from packaged or boxed mixes. I followed your directions exactly, but I was unable to find any chopped red chiles in a jar here in the US, so I compromised and bought a can of chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. I minced up one of the peppers (they're very spicy) and added it to the chili. Thanks for posting this wonderful and delicious recipe -- this will be my only way to make chili from now on.
