So yesterday I wanted to try something new. I found this recipe earlier this week and I knew that I had to try it. The only changes I made were to double the recipe (I have PLENTY of leftovers!) and use slightly more of each spice than is listed (even after I doubled the amount).
This is by far the best chili I think I’ve ever made, even beating out The Best Chili Ever. The pork comes out very tender and the flavor is light enough that you can appreciate the flavors of the peppers that are a part of the recipe. I was a little concerned about the amount of heat that the chili had, so I only put one jalapeno in the chili; I think that in the next batch I will use two, because there is only a hint of heat when I used one pepper for a double recipe.
This will definitely be a fun recipe to tinker around with, and the chili was a great last meal for 2011.
