I just made this recipe (kind of) for a family reunion (of extremely non-adventurous eaters). I had to make a few changes (less hot peppers, less chili powder & cayene pepper; ran out of kidney beans so I used more meat). It was "hot" enough to satisfy the hearty, adventurous few without scaring off the meek! All in all, a great crowd pleaser. Do let it cook longer than the recipe calls for. I cooked mine for 2 hours, put it in the fridge overnight then reheated it in the morning before putting it in a crockpot on low for the duration of the picnic (or until it ran out!). Now I wish I made extra so we'd have leftovers. Even my extremely fussy husband liked this one! ****UPDATE**** I made this chili for a company sponsored luncheon and made enough for 80 people (I don't recommend doing that unless you have the proper pans, though!) and still have people clamoring for me to make it again!
