Yum! Nice and spicy, but not over the top. Great flavor. One of the best chilis I've had. I scaled to use 2 lbs. beef, and used lean ground beef. Here are the minor changes I made: I added a bit of liquid smoke, used V8 instead of tomato sauce, used regular paprika, left out the jalapenos, and didn't need the flour as I just estimated the water. I added a little ground black pepper, forgot the oregano, and cooked in a crock pot on low for several hours instead of simmering, for convenience's sake. Also--I'm Texan and agree about the "no beans" rule, but my waistline disagrees so I added one can of ranch beans and one can of kidney beans, drained but not rinsed. My husband loved it, said he could eat it every week. It was too spicy for the kids. Thanks for a great recipe!
