I made this chili per the recipe. However, I put in 1 Tblsp of regular chili powder and 1 Tblsp of Ancho Chili Powder. The amount of heat was perfect. I ended up inviting friends over for potluck, and they loved it, me too. I had to send them the recipe. I served it with diced avocado and shredded non-fat cheddar.
