So I tried something new with chili and it turned out to be pretty decent. I’m more partial to my previous Chili Orangy recipe, but this recipe with its tart cinnamon apple finish made for something a bit more unique tasting. Totally worthwhile and very tasty!

Cheers and hope you're having a good one,
