Sam Gugino's Chili Con Carne

This recipe came from an article in the Wine Spectator by Sam Gugino. According to his article, it came from an award winning Chili Cook Off, though I don't have the article any longer to cite that properly. (Though this came from the Jan. 31 - Feb. 28, 2005 issue of the Wine Spectator Magazine, page 33.)This is an incredible chili with exactly the right amount of spiciness. If you are not careful with handling the chilies with gloves however, you will be on FIRE the whole time you cook it! (And oh boy, don't touch your eyes!)The work involved in this recipe takes some significant time, but if you do take your time, the outcome is totally worth it! You will never find something that tastes this good from a packet or out of a can.
