Cavegirl Chili

Cavegirl Chili

There has been a chill in the air lately and my hubby requested a pot of chili.  Depending on your “heat-o-meter” preference, play with the amount of chipotles or Sriracha that you add.  As the recipe stands, I would say this is about a 6 on the meter with 10 being the hottest.  So, play around with it and make this Cavegirl Chili yours!
