Great chili. Any leftovers can be reheated. Add just a little water if chili's too thick. Note: This is a recipe I adopted in the Great 'Zaar Adopta-thon; I have made some minor adjustments to it. Be careful with the crushed red pepper flakes; they vary in heat and some can be quite hot. You may wish to add less to start with, and adjust it later.
