TIP #1: If you want to tone down the heat in the chili, cut the amount of chilis in half. If you remove the seeds from the jalapenos, that will also cut down the spice factor. TIP #2: It really makes a difference to use bacon grease. Cook up some bacon for breakfast, and save the grease to make this chili.
