    Off work today and tomorrow. No bees stuff to do today and already cleaned the workshop and bee equipment storage area. So, with September here, my hunger for hot soups and stews has crawled out of its slumber...

    I found this recipe today...gonna give it a whirl this afternoon...I will post with my review....

    Nice! I halved this recipe since only one of my girls will help me eat it.
    - Sirloin ground meat
    - I did not drain the chipolte petite diced tomatoes
    - I used blacked bean and drained them to rid them of sodium.
    - Added some cajun seasoning for personal taste
    - Didn't have a jalapeno so used green chili pepper from garden
    - Had to add a can of tomato sauce to make up for fluids I drained
    - I may add more red pepper powder and/or chili powder as it cooks down for my personal liking

    It taste great so far! The cinnamon and honey does add a unique flavor burst!

    The temps dropped from 103 yesterday to low 50's last nite-hopefully last triple digit days so almost chili time. 'Til then, I'm focusing on jalapeño jelly and maybe a jalapeño relish-have an over abundance of peppers!

    Awesome Wayne! I ate the whole batch by myself in two days! Ha! I am making a double batch this weekend for company/cards/chili night. Glad you liked it! It's good stuff if you like sweeter chili...

    I have a bunch of jalapeños this year-new variety I grew from seed called "Big Guy"- and made jalapeño jelly. WOW! Never tried it before but am addicted now!

    Made this again Saturday night for game night with friends at our house. We had everyone bring chili. Guess who's chili went the fastest leaving only one bowl for me to enjoy the next day? Yours truly.... It is so darn good!!

    My wife says it's the best chili she's ever tasted and I don't disagree at all. It's a definite keeper recipe. We're making it again this weekend.

    Nice! Wayne, it really goes well with cornbread. I normally like my cornbread on the sweeter side but like less sweet cornbread with this chili recipe. We also baked a bunch of potatoes for folks to pour over if they wanted. Good ole comfort food...
