Here is mine... if you can get some leftover brisket it really makes a difference. Your chili powder is also a huge difference maker. Most store brands are fair at best. I like to make my own, but it is a pain. If you have the time order some from Penzey's Spices. There hot is HOT!!!


Smokin Gator’s Chili Recipe

Ingredients
2 pounds ground beef or brisket
1 large onion chopped
2 jalapenos chopped
2 cans stewed tomatoes (I like the petite diced)
2 cans dark red kidney beans - drained
1-2 cans pinto beans- drained
1 small can tomato paste
3-4 tablespoons of chili powder per pound of meat
1 teaspoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Directions
Put onions in the a stock pot
Put meat over the onions
Add seasoned salt and paprika
Simmer covered over medium heat until onions are translucent
Add tomatoes, tomato paste, jalapenos, 1 cup of water and the remaining seasonings.
Simmer on low for 2 hours – Adjust seasoning as needed
Add beans – simmer for 45 minutes
Let stand covered for 30 minute

Default Re: looking for a chili recipe

The purists may boo me but for a pretty simple but really good chile buy yourself some Wick Fowlers 2 Alarm Chile Mix (most Walmarts have it).

Now follow the box directions but make the following adjustments:

Add a can of Rotel juice and all - use hot rotel for a little kick
Chop up some fresh onion and brown with the meat
Don't add the hot pepper packet - just heat no flavor at all
Add a 1 or 2 fresh jalapenos chopped up for some flavor and heat
Instead of the water called for on the directions use equal amount of beef stock - I just use the Swansons in a box

Never fed it to anyone that did not think it was great!

Default Re: looking for a chili recipe

I have no recipe, I acutally throw all the odd and ends of meat that I have in the frig and dice it all up, grill iit up in a pan with seasoning (typically chilli powder, curry, peppers, etc) dice up some onions and all sorts of peppers. For the sause usually put a can of tomato paste, BBQ sauce, Buffalo sauce and some kind of whiskey or dark beer.
Either cook that in a crock pot over night than add a can of beans (change that up a lot too, Fried Beans or Cuban Beans have been a fav recently) and cook for a few more hours, if too liquidy than I add a little Chilli Mac pasta to it and cook for another hour or so.
If I am doing the cook top, I cook it for a few hours before putting the beans in, and usually don't need the pasta because I can take the cover off to evaporate the liquid.

Most people call my chilli the "Noah's Arch Chilli" because it usually has every type of meat in it. The best one was with the ground venison!!!

Excuse my chile spelling - read it and too late to edit. Guess I was thinking of going to South America rather than cooking.

Alton Browns chili recipe is probably the best Ive ever had. And since he makes it in a pressure cooker, It can be ready in about 40 minutes

Default Re: looking for a chili recipe

1 lb ground or diced meat of choice
3 stalks celery, diced 1/2"
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and diced 1/2"
1 (or more) jalepenos, stemmed and minced, seeds and all
1 lg yellow onion, diced 1/2"
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp oregano
1 tb ground cumin
1 tb good chili powder...not dollar store stuff!
1 large can whole tomatoes
1 large can crushed tomatoes
1 large can Brooks' Chili Hot beans
salt and black pepper to taste.


Add meat, onion, celery, peppers, onion, garlic and spices to large heavy pot, cook until meat is browned and veggies are softened. Add the tomatoes, breaking up the whole ones slightly. Add the beans.

Simmer low and slow at least 1 hour (longer is better), stirring often.

Serve with beer bread, hot out of the oven!

We make the "sauce" every year, just the veggies, and can it, then when we want a pot of chili, just brown meat, season, add sauce and beans and simmer for a bit.

Default Re: looking for a chili recipe

Here's mine.

3lbs ground beef (I like coarsely ground chuck)
2lbs ground buffalo (if you can't find, use all beef)
28oz can of chopped/peeled tomatoes
15oz can of tomato puree
1 12oz bottle of beer (your choice)
1 large onion diced
6 whole garlic cloves (paper skin left on)
2 dried ancho chiles (use more anchos or guajillos if unable to find the other dried chiles)
2 dried guajillo chiles
2 dried new mexico chiles
2 dried puya chiles
2 dried pasilla chiles
2 dried chile negros
2 chipotle chiles w/1Tbsp adobo sauce
2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp ground coriander
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 Tbsp sugar
Salt/pepper to taste
Remove stems/seeds from the dried chiles. Break up into smaller pieces (2-3in in size). In a sauté pan over medium heat, place pieces of the chiles a couple at a time in pan, pressing down with a spatula. Toast each side of the chiles briefly to blister. You should see just a wisp of smoke. Be careful not to burn. Add toasted chiles to bowl of hot water, enough to cover chiles. Use a plate if needed to submerge the chiles. Soak the chiles for 20-30 mins to rehydrate (reserve soaking liquid). At the same time as toasting the chiles, add the unpeeled garlic to the pan, occasionally turning until each clove is roasted. There will be some black spots on the garlic where it roasted in the pan. That's ok. Remove the garlic from the pan and set aside to cool. Once cooled, remove paper skin.
Add rehydrated chiles, 1 cup of reserved soaking liquid, chipotles/adobo sauce, garlic, cayenne, cumin, coriander, chili powder and sugar to blender. Puree until smooth, adjusting with extra soaking liquid to achieve a consistency of bbq sauce. Strain through a kitchen strainer to remove any remaining seeds and the skins of the chiles. Use a spatula to push the puree through the strainer. Season with salt/pepper and set aside.
Working in batches in a large heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat, brown the meat mixture and the onions. Season each batch while browning with salt/pepper. Once last batch of meat is done cooking, add all the meat/onions back to pot. Add chile puree, chopped tomatoes, tomato sauce and beer to pot. Cover pot and bring to a simmer for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. Adjust seasoning to taste during cooking adding additional spices as necessary. Best if made a day or 2 ahead, to allow the flavors to combine.
Serve with favorite condiments. (Freshly chopped onions, nacho chips, cheddar cheese, cilantro, fresh chopped chiles, etc) And of course cold cerveza.

If you can't find all of the differrent dried chiles, you can use whatever you can find. I just happend to have all those in the cupboard and needed to use.

I just made a pot of Wick Fowler's yesterday. I made it 2-Alarm, but it's more like 3-Alarm today. Dave's right--the packet of red pepper mainly just adds heat. I do the onions the way he mentioned, and works well. Don't use a food processor though, just chop them kind of coarse. When I used onion from processor last time, it was way too onion-y. Live and learn. I have used beer in place of the liquid, but found it's best not to use an economy beer. The aroma really lingers.
Also, not too bad, kind of same process, is Carroll Shelby's Chili mix. They used to have it at Wal-Mart, too, but haven't seen it for a while. I presume they still make it. It was worth eatin'.

Oh, btw, I like to put a spoon or so of Mrs. Renfro's Chow-Chow on top of my chili. Or a spoonful of Pico de Gallo. If you need a good Pico de Gallo recipe, holler at me, I've got one.
Afraid to admit it, but I also like a spoon of sour cream sometimes, and even some sprinkled cheese. Purists will frown, I know. I've already been called the P-word for not taking it straight. And we won't even get into the bean discussion. I just say adjust it to your own compression ratio, and remember that beans are usually served on the side in TX.

Here's one that I make, it's from the old Bill Cosby show.

Cliff explains to his family why it's essential to wait three days before eating his famous chili: "If you tasted this on the first day, you'd say, 'What can did this come out of?' If you tasted this on the second day, you'd say, 'Oh my goodness, somebody's grandmother got up off her chair and just took this to the mountain!' But on the third day you don't even have to taste it. You just walk by the pot and something says, 'Hey, come here!'"

Default Re: looking for a chili recipe

I really like Emeril's chili recipe, but it's not spicy by any means, but you can always add all the additional peppers/hot sauce that you see fit. I usually make it according to the recipe and then add Sriracha hot sauce, jalapenos, or sprinkling more cayenne pepper over the top.

Ingredients

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups chopped onions
Salt
Cayenne
2 pounds stew meat
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
Crushed red pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons chopped garlic
3 cups crushed tomatoes
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 cups beef stock
1 cup canned dark red kidney beans
2 tablespoons masa flour
4 tablespoons water
1 bag Tortilla Chips
1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese
6 tablespoons sour cream
1 small jar of jalapenos

Directions

In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables start to wilt. Season with salt and cayenne. Stir in the stew meat, chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Brown the meat for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, beef stock, and beans. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the liquid, uncovered for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, or until the beef is tender. Skim off the fat occasionally. Mix the masa and water together. Slowly stir in the masa slurry and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Reseason with salt and cayenne. Place a handful of the chips in each shallow bowl. Spoon the chili over the chips. Garnish with the grated cheese, sour cream and jalapenos.

Sure-

Just take any good chili recipe and omit the beans. I'd think that in order to add more "bulk" in its place, you might add a bit additional elbow macaroni or something in its place to thicken it back up. I never use the chili beans in any chili I make, although I think if I were to add any beans, it would be black beans from now on.

Here was a highly rated recipe on allrecipes using black beans: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/fantast...ck-bean-chili/

Default Re: looking for a chili recipe

Here is my quick recipe. I use this one when I don't have time to make real chili.

2 cans Bush's Chili starter
1 can fire roasted tomatoes with garlic
1 can cilantro lime rotell
1 small can diced green chilis
2lbs ground beef
1 liptons onion pack
1 big spoonful of bacon grease
black pepper
1/2 cup beef stock
1 can/bottle dark beer

Start cooking the ground beef in a large pan, add the bacon grease, onion pack, and pepper to ground beef when it is about 1/2 way done. add beef stock, stir to combine all ingredients. cover and let simmer for about 10-15 minutes.

while the meat is cooking, add all other ingredients to crock pot or large soup pot. Once the meat is done, add it to the pot and let cook on low for 4-8 hours. the longer it cooks, the stronger the flavors become.

optional: add 1 can/bottle of dark beer for a unique flavored chili

Just increase the number of chipotle peppers and amount of adobo sauce if you want it spicier.


If you don't have a pressure cooker, you can adapt it to a regular pot with a longer cook, you'll have to add more liquid since you'll have more boil off.

You can also thicken other chili recipes with with a teaspoon or two of masa harina, takes about 10 minutes to thicken and for the corn flavor to cook out.
