This one is just GREAT! So full of flavor. It's thick and spicy, but not very hot, so fell free to add cayenne if you prefer fire in your mouth :) This chili goes very well with a rustic bread and tomato/cucumber salad topped with chopped green onions and fresh basil. I use grated peppers, because I don't like it too chunky, if you do, just chop them instead.
