I've made a lot of chili over the years, but didn't have my recipe handy. So I found this one on allrecipes because generally the site and its' users do a great job. Unfortunately this recipe was a big disappointment. I reduced the amount of cinnamon a bit, since I really didn't want to taste it explicitly. I also reduced the oregano a little because I've had it over-power dishes in the past. I left the full amount of cumin in there, which was a big mistake. The cumin became the predominant flavor. Both my wife and I felt it really didn't taste like chili at all. It wasn't bad, just not chili. If you put enough fixings on it (sour cream, cheddar cheese, etc) then it tastes better, but there's better recipes. My past recipes called for more chili powder and never had cumin in them. I would consider adding cumin in the future, but a far less amount.
