*This recipe gets better over time, so feel free to let the chili simmer for longer than 20-30 minutes to let the flavors meld. You can also do it in a slow cooker. Simply add al the ingredients except the heavy cream and lemon juice to the pot, let the slow cooker do its job, and then stir in the heavy cream and lemon juice before serving.
