    From the ingredients it sounds good!!!

    I prefer my chili chunky, so I use great big hunks of burned meat, don’t blend my beans to mush, don’t chop the garlic, etc. But now I am hungry!

    Proffe …
    You must UPPE YOURE GAME!!!!! Insteadde of 25 boring Hatch chilis, try a mix of dried anchos, poblanos, negros and Hatch.

    And ‘toast” the chilis in a dry skillet over medium heat (outside – the fumes are corrosive) … rip them open, remove seeds and press them onto the hot skillet with a spatula until the flesh blisters (like the Sopanish Inquisition). Then soak and grind.

    In Texas it is illegal to refer to what you describe above as “chili,” but it looks pretty good anyway, and I’d be happy to eat it, if I didn’t have to watch sports at the same time.
