yum and quick - one change, Guest tiffany

great tasting chili for being done in 45 mins! However, calling for one tsp of chili powder sounded like a lot. So I cut it in half, and it was STILL too spicy - even for my fiancee who loves spice! Maybe 1/4 tsp or so next time. But great overall! And I'll add some mushrooms nxt time for more texture.
