It's good, definitely, though I don't think it's anything special and out of the ordinary. I rated a 3 because of everything I changed, though now that I am eating it, a four is in order. Nice heat to it now!!
Based on a number of other reviews saying it was too spicy, I cut the spices in half, but then there was no spice at all (I didn't have cayenne on hand, so maybe that was the difference?)! So I then added in the other half, and again didn't think it had much heat (Note: I am not a spice person, so if I think it needed more, it definitely wasn't spicey). So in addition to using all of the spices listed here, there were my modifications: a lot more chili powder, more flower pepper (Trader Joes), more paprika, tad more oregano, added lots of red pepper flakes, used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, completely omitted the beer, and added some celery, a couple jalapenos and 3 amarillo chilis. I also used a tad less chicken broth an it was still too watery, so added a couple TBLS of corn startch.
