Chili Good

Well my first-ever batch of chili was a success. It came out pretty good considering.

I've made some notes of changes I want to try next time.

I did make one big goof in the preparation.

Here's the recipe I was using, but I was making only a half-portion of it. But I screwed-up when measuring the chicken broth, and put in the full quantity (5 cups instead of 2.5). So it was pretty wet.

I didn't discover this until it was simmering, but I was able to spoon off about a cup and a half. This got the consistency back close to what I think it should have been.

Of course I probably removed a lot of flavor with that liquid, nevertheless it was pretty tasty.
