    Thanks, Lucinda, for making a chili recipe that tastes like chili! The flavor in this is amazing. I have been making it once a week since the show aired. We are pretty wimpy about spice so I leave out the cayenne and jalapenos. The chilies give it great heat and smokiness. I also double the beans because we really like them. Plus I had to switch everything into a dutch oven after browning the meat because my skillet was full.

    @Nermie: I think the dried and softened chilies are really the heart of this recipe, so I wouldn't try powder, but if you absolutely had to, 1 or 2 tablespoons would be plenty, I think.

    I think Lucinda mentioned that powdered chili could be used but I'm wondering how much to use. Help, anyone?

    When this episode aired it was recommended to use a dark beer.

    What kind of beer is best to use for this recipe? I wouldn't think lite beer would do much in terms of flavor, would it?
