At one of my bridal showers thrown by one of my best friends Kaleena and her mom Sandra they had all the guests give me a recipe card of their favorite recipes to put into a cute little recipe book. Such a fun idea! This was one of the recipes. This chili is fabulous!!! It’s a nice change to traditional chili, has great flavor, and pretty simple to make.

Big pinch of cayenne pepper
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. whipping cream

[My 2 Cents]
The “pinch” of cayenne will determine the spice level of the chili. I, personally do not enjoy really spicy foods therefore I tend to add a “small” pinch, it’s entirely up to you. The perfect amount for me is a little less than 1/4 tsp. Also, be sure to simmer for the 30 minutes, if you don’t it will be really runny and very thin.
