This is the chili recipe that got me started. I was looking for a fun, complex, spicy chili like the ones I had in the midwest, and decided to try this. It's amazing, and what's best about it, is that it gives you a great base to experiment with and create your own, unique bowl of chili. The modifications I make are: No cocoa, half the amount of sugar, and the amount / type of chilis I use depends on who I'm making it for. For a mixed crowd with people who may not like overly spicy dishes, two completely seeded jalapenos will be just enough to give it the bite. If you like it nice and HOT, use 2 habaneros. Another great way is 1 habanero, 1 jalapeno and a teaspoon of Thai red chili sauce. Also, it is very important you use a good beer. I used to used cheap stuff at first and it's a waste. A nice dark, creamy European beer is the way to go.
