The word smoky brings up so many evocative images. A campfire just put out, wisps of white twirling up towards the sky. A sultry look across a crowded bar, pre-21st century. A bear giving you the responsibility of preventing ecological disasters. You can envision all these sights and more when you taste the paprika-provided smokiness in this chili. The mellow poblano peppers mix perfectly with the slight singe, and the tomato and beef add spirited flavor to the billowing haze. They used to say smoke gets in your eyes, but the most appropriate place for smoke is in your chili.
