    This is a good recipe. I used it as a base model and modified. 2 lbs stew meat, coated in flour, salt, pepper, paprika. Browned and added to the pot. Then one pound ground beef and a half pound of a left over pork chop, diced. 1 tsp New Mexico chili powder, a dash of cayenne, 1 tsp smoke chipotle in adobo, 1 tablespoon smoked paprika plus 1 tablespoon paprika. 1/2 tsp dry oregano and 1 tablespoon fresh Mexican oregano. Added green and red pepper. 2/3rd of habenaro. Awesome spicy smoky steak chil

    This chili was awesome. I used a jalapeno instead of a habanero as there were no habaneros at Whole Foods. I used the same amount of spices as prescribed in the recipe and the spice level was perfect. I think a little spicier with a habanero could have worked too. It had a good chili consistency. My boyfriend loved it! Thanks Jimmy for a yummy chili recipe and for always making me smile!

    You should be able to feel your lips when you eat right? This recipe is stupid-spicy. Half the chili powder is probably sufficient. Also suggest cutting meat back a 1/2 pound and adding a can of black beans and a cup of corn. Beer made it too watery; added tomato paste. [Sorry ya but this recipe needs some love.]

      We didn't find it spicy at all. The second time I made it I went with a whole habanero rather than a half and it had a nice heat.

    I made this last night. I ended up using 2 lbs of ground beef and about 4 1/2 cups of cooked pinto beans. I didn't have habenero so I used 3 small chipotles (in adobo). I am happy with the way the chili turned out. It's just a tiny bit spicy and it has a nice flavor. It's a bit on the soupy side, perhaps if I cooked it longer it would have thickened more. I personally like soupy chili, so I'm cool with it. I am excited to try it again tonight as chili always tastes better the next day!

    Really good but REALLY beefy. And we are meat-lovers, but wow, LOTS of beef. Next time we are going to half the beef. We also doubled the beans.

    I make this chili a few times a year, love it! Though I prefer to add more veggies (pepper, corn, and celery). This time I also tried a mix of ground beef, ground chicken, and ground pork.

    I made this chili recipe for our company halloween chili cookoff competition and I won first place. I used one jalapeno instead of a habanero since I didn't want it to be too hot. It was really good and the whole crock pot was eaten.

    This is the best chili recipe I've ever made. I don't always have beer around so I add a little more water. Still comes out spicy good. I also cook it on the stove, not in a crock pot.

    THE VERY BEST CHILI RECIPE!!! I've been making this chili since I watched Jimmy make it on the Martha Stewart show right before he started hosting Late Night w/Jimmy Fallon and it has been my family's favorite ever since. I've tried numerous chili recipes over the years and none compare to this one. I have made a few adjustments to our liking and they are: Only use 2 lbs hamburger Substitute the habanero chili with a JalapeƱo pepper Add 1 can chili beans Thank you so much Jimmy & Martha!
