Okay, you've completely deviated from the "share your secret ingredient" concept. You've posted an entire recipe for "ChiTown" Chili. I can only surmise that you are from Chicago, so you probably think your chili is the best when, in reality, it probably sucks... like the Cubs. Your recipe looks hot and obnoxious, like a Cubs game in Wrigley in mid-August. The Cubs suck, and so must your chili.
The slightest hint of sage is my secret ingredient.
