My Favorite Chili Recipe

The upcoming Tapes 'n Tapes interview (and the cold January weather) has me thinking about chili. Erik, the bass player for Tapes 'n Tapes likes to make food in mass quantities and his favorite dish for a crowd is chili. His secret ingredients are beer and honey.

The interview will be posted soon, but in the meantime, you should try out my own favorite chili recipe that I've been perfecting over nearly two decades, including a few unexpected extras that make it more complex and interesting.

Jen's Kitchen Tip: Bag O' Shrimp

Shrimp shows up on the menu fairly frequently in my house (stir-fry, kebab, soups, etc.), and I used to buy what I needed, the day I needed it, from the seafood counter.
