I used this recipe as a base for a chili competition and it TIED for first place! Here are my suggestions:
I doubled the extra virgin olive oil, cumin, celery stalks, and chili powder.
I added a yellow bell pepper, 1 1/2 teaspoon coriander, about 3 Tablespoons brown sugar (to taste), 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes.
I only used 1 jalapeno pepper.
I didn't use garbanzo beans or black beans, salt, or ground black pepper.
I altered the tomatoes. I used 4 (14.5 oz) cans of Hunts Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes (2 original, 2 garlic). For the corn and beans- I bought cans that said "no salt added".
Don't forget to taste test throughout and to remove the bay leaves- which may be confusing for someone who has never cooked with them before.
You'll love this recipe!
