A cool fall day, football on tv, my husband's birthday, and lots of family and friends coming over : what else to make but chili? This recipe earned me so many compliments-- and the best one of all was there was not a drop left in either crock pots. I times 4 ed this recipe, and instead of 4 lbs of hamburger put in 5 cause I like beef in chili, and instead of regular ground pork, I used 2 1/2 lbs of spicy Italian sausage. Also, I love beans and used a variety: chilibeans, black beans, dark and light and white kidney beans. And having never used habenero peppers before, when my husband told me they were so hot they would "change my life for half an hour" I opted for fresh jalapeño. Since I was times 4ing I used just four finely diced. I did think this chili was pretty labor intensive-- I was cutting 4 large onions for half an hour alone! I cooked on the stove and for serving purposes transferred to crock pots the next day. The chili had a lovely, lingering heat to it. It served over 20 and people were all getting seconds. The little ones said it was too hot but it was a hit. Delicious chili, fantastic recipe! I'm glad that I snuck a little pot for my husband and I to have leftovers.
