Though it takes more expense and preparation than some, this is my new favorite chili recipe. I was going to take it to a cook-off but got there too late to enter. :( Don't be afraid to add all the "hot" ingredients -- cayenne, habaneros, wasabi. Unless you have a sensitive, bland tastes, this moderately spicy chili won't be too hot for you. I'm sort of a middle-of-the-road hotness person myself (always get "medium" in the salsa aisle) and it was just fine. I liked all the different flavors in it. I will say that after it simmered awhile the flavors were less discernible, which kind of disappointed me. But I'm about to put all the ingredients on my shopping list again so we can make it again! Oh, and seriously, you HAVE to drain the fat after cooking the meat ... can't imagine how greasy the chili would be if you didn't.
