!I have found the type of chili powder used makes a difference. If you are using a fresh, strong, one like Penzey's Chili 3000, you may want to start with ½ teaspoon. If you are a wimp like me and some of my grankiddies, cut back. For those like my kids that enter fresh chili take downs, you may want more!
I recently made Cream Cheese Chicken Chili for a tailgate party and quadrupled the recipe filling my 12 quart roaster oven. It is delicious served over rice. You may also garnish with fresh, chopped, cilantro.
