  • Why do I like it?

This is a hearty, satisfying chili that any meat eater would also love.  You can make it as spicy or mild as you like.  It is a great one pot meal.  Leftovers can be eaten for days or frozen.  You can serve over salad as I did above, over pasta or even a baked potato.

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I used red pepper instead of green because I like the flavor better.  I also omitted the allspice.  I use a bit less garlic, about half of what the recipe calls for.  I also used half the amount of cayenne as I wanted a milder flavor.
