I love my homemade chili recipe. The flavors come together in the perfect blend.  You will always hear me say that I never want to taste something and know immediately what a certain flavor is.  I want my food to delight not overpower the senses.  I think my Homemade Chili Recipe fits that bill perfectly.  A blend of flavor with just a touch of spice.  The best thing about this Homemade Chili is that if you want it spicer, all you have to do is increase the red pepper.  I love this with some corn chips, cheese, and a touch of sour cream.  I also love it with cornbread.
