I did not add the jalapeno's ( HOT hot is not for me). This is a great recipe if you like a not-too-spicy chili. If you are looking for a three alarm chili or one that drains your sinuses, this is not it. Without jalapenos, it's got just enough spice and "kick" without having to drink 10 glasses of water to cool off. Good flavor, good consistency. I've now made it three times and everyone has loved it.

I have tried many different chili recipes and this one is our family's favorite! We did NOT omit the jalapenos and it is not that spicy! My 3-year-old eats it. I adjust nothing and make it as the recipe indicates every time and its fantastic. Leftovers freeze well.

I'm nuts too...

Nice easy chili, this is almost the same chili that I grew up on (with the exemption of the jalapenos). I used 1 tbsp of cumin, 1/2 tsp of oregano and 2 cloves of garlic, although it coulda used 3. I seeded the jalapeno and didn't find it that hot, so next time I will just chop up the whole thing and add maybe 3 tbsp. of chili powder (the way mom used to). As with all sauces & chili make sure that you adjust the seasonings before serving. (I am full from all the taste testing, so I had to skip dinner tonight, tomorrows lunch for me). Thanks for the easy recipe Danielle!
