We enjoyed this chili, but found it to be thicker than most.

I have made this recipe more than once and it is fantastic. I add two cans of green chilies because I like extra heat, but otherwise, I keep it exactly the same. Yum!!

The rich mole-style sauce really adds depth to the flavor of this dish. This recipe is comfort food at its best!
