Your recipe is very similar to mine as I said before (since it looked so much like my chili) I just use plain old chili powder, I have not played with the Mexican seasonings yet. Other than that my chili making process is very similar.
What amazes me is that I totally just made up the recipe and tweaked it over the years. I recently started adding some brown sugar and Worsty sauce, and I have always used a bunch of bay leaves.
I do not use coriander, apple cider vinegar, beef broth or the olive oil.
Whats the purpose of the vinegar and oil?
