Good Old Chili Con Carne, pg. 172 Jamie’s Food Revolution

Much like the fajitas in Jamie Oliver’s cookbook, we thought this recipe was very eatable but not like the chili we are familiar with. It tasted like a bolognese sauce with chili powder and beans. I think it must have been the balsamic vinegar and the cinnamon. I am interested to see what you think. Here is the ingredient list. The above link will give you this list in our Plan to Eat account.
