  2. Steve requested chili for his bday yesterday so I decided to make this recipe. I added some fresh jalapeno peppers (from my mom’s garden!) to the hamburger when I sauteed it. I’m not sure how much it affected the overall flavor, but regardless we loved the chili! I’m currently enjoying it for lunch today:)
