A little spicy, and it has to be traditional red chili with beans. Thanks in advance...

ETA: This is for a contest. So I guess I should spread the love. The best chili recipe posted here, as selected in a completely subjective process by my g/f, will be made and entered into the contest. If that recipe wins the contest, then its poster will receive a used USGI 30 round mag and a medium TT MOLLE belt in OD.

Have at it, ladies and gents.

ETA again: OK, all entries must be in by 1530 tomorrow.

Also, IMs with secret recipes people don't wish to share with the group are also perfectly acceptable and will be regarded as confidential information.

I don't normally give this out but for you I will.

Cook some pinto beans.
Roast some chilies. (I use 2 Anahimes and 1 Jalapino)
Cook meat. While cooking meat add bell pepper, red and green, and some onions. Cook till onions are clear.
Add all this to the beans.
Peel the chilies and chop them up. Add them to the beans.
Add some chilie powder to the beans. Couple of tablespoons should do it.
Let this simmer for awhile. (15-30 min)
Add small can of tomato paste and stir it in. (this holds it all together)
Simmer for just a few min (7-10)
Eat it.

I placed second in a contest with this. (of course we were all drunk as hell when we ate it)

I LOVE my chili and always get compliments on it's flavor. Problem is that
I don't measure anything out and always adjust the spices on the fly. Saddens me
that I can't share.

I use Carrol Shelby's mix packet and follow the directions. The only thing that I add to the mix is 2 packs of beef chorizo and a little bit of beer... gives it that extra little something.

thanks,
Ron

Mine's the same way. Recipe is fairly simple, it's the quantities that get adjusted every time.

Any recipe with beans in it is the best. Chili isnt chili unless it has beans.

Once you put beans in chili, it ceases to be chili.

beef (I prefer to cut up steak)
diced tomatoes
jalapenos
onions
red beans
water
chili powder
salt
black pepper
garlic

and 1-2 squirts of OC 10% (seriously)

I adjust the amounts of ingredients based on how much I want to make and how hot I want it to be.

This is pretty close to my chili. I do add cayenne pepper, white pepper, salt and pepper, and lots of chili sauce. Naturally, this is all to taste.

I also sautee the onion before adding the beef and spices. Letting it simmer is a great way to let all the flavors mix well. But damn, it is hard to wait.

One other secret ingredient, add about a tablespoon of sugar after it's been simmering for awhile. Then, stir, and let it simmer for another cpl of hours.

Enjoy

Where do they grow Chile???
Not in Vermont...not in Wisconsin...not in Louisiana.

NEW MEXICO...that's fucking where!

Saute meat (pork, beef, elk, deer ,squirrel. rabbit etc. in oil)
add red chile to pan while stirring,
add garlic if desired
then add water while stirring
simmer for a while...adding water if necessary.

Ted Kennedy puts beans in Chile.
John ( French Gay Candidate) Kerry, puts Tomato products in Chile

False. Chili without beans isnt chili, its a soup/stew.

You can lead a horse to water...

FYI, if you put beans in it it's called "Chili With Beans"

beans don't belong in "chili"

if it does , then it's "bean soup"

It's not regular sausage.. it's Mexican sausage and it doesn't cook like regular Jimmy Dean-style sausage. It dissolves as you cook it and the spices are really good.

thanks,

I have been eating huevos con chorizo for as long as I can remember. I remember when I was old enough read AND understand the ingredients label. Didn't bother me though.... now when I found out that "special meat" was actually tongue.. I didn't eat that ever again

thanks,
Ron
