I also thought there was a lack of liquid. And I had a hard time getting past the sweetness from the brown sugar. I cooked dried pintos rather than using canned beans. I didn't feel the can of chili beans added anything of special interest. I also used some chocolate. And I felt the chili was better after adding double the cumin and also some New Mexico chili powder. After getting past the sweetness and making my adjustments the chili was good. I really did like the combination of fresh chilies. It made a huge pot which is good for leftovers. I definitely will make it again with my adjustments. It is a good starting point.
