I won awards with this chili! It can be as spicy as you like by adding the hottest New Mexico red chili powder and hot Hatch chile peppers, or toned down with mild green chiles and mild red chili powder. I have been making a version of this chili for my family for decades, however, now it's all plant-based. In the summer, here in Texas, we can purchase fresh Hatch green chiles in August, roast and freeze them for later in the year. My roasted Hatch chiles add a depth of flavor to this dish. It's also a great dish to use your homemade beans, any type is fine.
