I just LOVE this recipe. It does take more time than many in rotation, but the flavor is outstanding.

I'm so grateful for this delicious recipe. I can't wait to make it again. It had the perfect heat, and incredible flavor from the spices. After browning the meat and cooking the veggies, I dumped everything into my slow cooker and cooked on high for 2 hours until the meat was tender. I'll definitely double the recipe in the future. YUM!!!

This was a pretty good chili in a pinch. Will keep it in the file.

It's a really good tasting chili. I wish it made more. I may need to double next time so I have leftovers. The pain point was peeling the peppers after roasting, but otherwise easy to bring together. My husband and I both thought it was only a touch spicy but our teenager, who is more sensitive to spice, thought it was too spicy.
