This is not your usual chili recipe... it is famous. It has won contests. Besides one small firehouse disaster a few weeks ago (ok, two disasters... 🥵) my chili is the best that you will ever have.
You can add more spice if you want and make it with beef or turkey... but this is where it's at... yes, there is peanut butter in this masterpiece!
