Kenny Rogers Fire−And−Ice Chili

I entered this into a chili cookoff with about 10 other chili’s.  This one is very different from what you expect, but everyone LOVED it.  It was a tie for first place between this recipe, and my friend, Alex’, recipe (hmmm, guess I should request his too)  I’m making this for dinner tonight and decided to throw in a can of beans as well.
