If you love heat, this chili is for you. I've taken a combination of a few of my favorite chili recipes and added my own personal touches to create a very flavorful, spicy chili. You can also sub dried basil and oregano for fresh, and bacon bits for crumbles; fresh is always a better flavor though. The longer it simmers, the better it tastes. Serve in bowls with Cheddar cheese and sour cream topping. Goes well with cornbread.
For less heat, remove the seeds from the jalapeno before chopping.
