I obtained this chili from the website of the late Don Ingersky. I don't know much about Don, other than he was part of his local police force and that he won many a chili contest with this very recipe. I know you will never see this Don, but you have made one Virginia boy very happy with this Chili recipe. Note 1: This chili recipe requires a lot of ingredients, but one store run will easily allow you to make 3-4 batches. And each batch will fill 10-12 heart bowls. Note 2: This chili will be HOT HOT HOT if you do not seed at least some of the jalapenos. 3-4 unseeded jalapenos will give the chili some kick but it won't have you running for your drink. I recommend starting from there, and working your way up to more if it ain't hot enough for you.

Brown the ground beef and break up to fine pieces while browning. DRAIN ALL GREASE. Mince up (easy with a food processor) the onions, green peppers, and jalapenos. Add the minced stuff to the hamburger. Drain the juices to the cans of kidney and pinto beans and "cooking tomatoes". Also, while the whole tomatoes are in the can, take a knife and mince them up also. Add all of these and remaining ingredients, stir well, and bring chili to a boil. Simmer at lowest heat while covered for two hours. Serve up with tortilla chips and shredded cheddar cheese for topping if desired.
