Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The spices in this sound unusual, but they are delicious. If I'm only serving adults, I add another can of the spicy rotel tomatoes, Tobasco sauce and/or cayenne pepper to make it more spicy. The beans are optional, but I like to use them because it makes the chili serve more without using more meat (economical and healthy).
