Wanted to give this recipe a try since I'm a big fan of using Ancho peppers in chili recipes, versus using that tasteless/gritty grocery store chili pepper. One thing I noticed is that this recipe seems to be a bit short in liquid as the chili was very dry (difficult to even stir). All in all, it was very good, but I did make the following modifications. First, I had to add more liquid to the Ancho peppers as there was no way they were going to puree in a blender without doing so. Second, as mentioned, the chili itself seemed very dry, so I added a bottle of lager beer. Third, as most here did, I cut the honey in half. All in all, the chili was very good tasting, although my kids thought it was bit too spicy. Maybe Ancho peppers have a range of "hotness", don't know. For the 1/4C of hot sauce, I used Tapatio hot sauce (which isn't real spicy). Perhaps I'll just eliminate the hot sauce next time...although doing so means I'll have to add another 1/4 cup of liquid to make up for that.
