    A little too spicy for us, but the taste was good. Will make again and dial it back a notch. Makes a lot of chili!

    I wasn't sure how the sweet potatoes would be in this recipe, but it was very good. I used 1/2 lb chorizo and 1/2 lb ground beef, and omitted the jalapenos. We just don't like things really spicy. The flavors were excellent. It's a keeper!

    This chili was awesome. It has a smoky, rich flavor. I added 2 Tbs. brown sugar and 3 kung pao peppers. Substituted 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce for the jalapeno peppers. Flavors were excellent.

    OMG, this was such a big hit with my guest. I even made a 2nd batch for my vegetarian friends by substituting vegetarian bulk sausage for the chorizo and veg. stock in place of the beef stock.
