Please share your chili recipes

Postby ohiosteve » Sat Jan 03, 2015 3:03 pm

My daughter and I make chili purt near every weekend. We almost always make it the same with slight variations I'm just looking for some new ideas. We always make it pretty mild and I spice mine up with some hot sauce. We throw it in our big crock pot usually in the morning on low and its ready to eat for lunch with plenty of leftovers.

Our go-to recipe
-2 lbs browned ground beef seasoned to taste with salt, garlic powder and pepper.
-28 oz chopped maters seasoned with oregano and basil
-28 oz Bushes mild chili beans
-16 oz sweet corn
Today I used 1 lb ground venison and 1 lb ground pork sausage.
My daughter likes to use Bushes homestyle baked beans which is pretty good but a tad too sweet for my taste.
We might have to start making 2 smaller batches that might be fun.

Anyways I'd like to hear some of your chili recipes, thanks.

Or any day for that matter. I just wish my daughter was a little more tolerant of spicy foods. She is getting a little better though sometimes I'll sneak a pepper or two in and tell her after she has taken a few bites and she's ok with it.

I never make it the same way twice... sometimes it's HOT, sometimes kinda sweet... always good!

I don't know if frito chili pie is common all over the country but it is here.
Put Fritos in the bottom of the bowl, then chilli then dill pickle slices and cheese. Some people also put slaw in it too but I don't like slaw.

My chili really doesn't have a recipe, pound and a half of hamburger, chili beans, tomatoes, chili powder, light on the hot peppers, chopped onion. But I make a big batch, eat it for a couple of days and then vacuum pack the rest and freeze the rest, that becomes my starter for the next batch which I might twist a little.

I prefer mine without beans also, and don't think I want corn in it either. As I said on another discussion, when you start putting too many vegetables in it it's not chili anymore, it's soup. The only vegetables I want in mine are tomatoes, peppers, and onions.

My mother-in-law used to cut up a steak and add it to the ground meat. I highly recommend that.

I also like to eat mine with Fritos, and I'm okay with cheese, but pickles? That's just wrong.

The pickles are what make it. I really don't like chilli but I can eat it with that stuff.

I like some " chow-chow" or spicy pickle relish on mine. Never seen chili w corn in it...
I've seen people pour chili right into a small bag of corn chips. No clean up. Just toss the bag when your done.

That first recipe doesn't have enough "chili" in it to suit me. It doesn't have to be so hot it blows up your insides, but it has to have chili flavor. The best peppers for that I have found so far, guajillo chiles. They aren't hot but have a ton of chili flavor. I bought a big bag of them, dried, and have been grinding them up fresh as needed. A tablespoon or two of ground guajillo chiles, plus some ancho chili powder, a couple, three chipotles out of the can and some cumin are what gives it the best "chili" flavor, at least for me. Adding the corn makes it more of a chili stew or soup. I do like beans and tomatoes in a pot of chili even though that isn't "real chili". I grew up eating chili with kidney beans, but I like pintos better.
