My first time making chili, I wanted to find a recipe that would be simple but good. As soon as I mixed everything in the pot, I knew it was a good recipe because the smell just spelled "chili". I haven't tried making a lot of changes to it yet, in the future I will experiment. I cut the recipe in half because it was a trial portion, and this time I just added more cayenne (x3, I like spicy!), about a tablespoon of agave syrup (in addition to cane sugar instead of white sugar), and a few splashes of chipotle tabasco sauce. Also, some raw cocoa powder (about 2 tbsp) - I heard this does wonders for subtly enhancing the taste. I only used kidney beans because I prefer them to pinto. Next time I might try diced tomatoes instead of tomato sauce because I do like thicker/chunky chili, plus fresh tomatoes might add an extra zing to it. I also browned the onions for about a minute before throwing the rest of the stuff in, I think it works well. The recipe worked great though, thank you!
