I am looking for recipe suggestions for Chili with beans. A few local friends are getting together for a Chili cook off.

Anyone have a favorite ?



Thanks

I usually buy a round steak and cut it up. I have tried the addition of cocoa and/or cinnamon. Once was good enough. I use chili powder, onion powder, minced garlic, paprika, etc. instead of any packaged nonsense. I like the addition of beans, because I'm not a Texan.

The only time I'll use ground meat is if I'm making a white bean/chicken chili. And next time I'm going to try it with skinless/boneless chicken thighs.

I'm kinda like Guitar Fool, I just sort of make it up as I go along. If I have a cheap beer in the house (seldomly), I'll slow cook the beef in it for a while. Peppers (green and jalapeno) a must, as is onion. I'll toss in carrots for the white bean variety, as well as celery and cilantro.

I'm gonna have to make chili today.

slacker...that looks really good...

I'm going to have to try it next....however, I've soured on the Rotel....wife and i both thinks its too damn spicy.... even the mild....

I like spicy and i like hot, but for some reason the Rotels takes it over the edge....

I still have about 2 bowls of my last batch left in the fridge.. I made it last weekend for the games.... I used dark and light kidney beans as well as Pinto's... very tasty, spicy and it didn't turn me into a Fart machine....maybe im losing my touch...-0


the bacon thing sounds like the bomb!

"I usually buy a round steak and cut it up"


I do that as well... the local butcher doesn't carry the right cut meat so its gotta be cut up more... I used some chuck cubes 2 lbs as well as 1 lb ground beef..

I've heard about cinnamon in chili but...can't bring myself to try it...

Made a big pot of chili last night. The basics were ground beef, kidney beans, black beans, green pepper and onions... the spices and rest were like most the rest of the posters here, I don't follow a set recipe and wing it as I go trying something different. I will admit, my chili isn't anything special that I've been impressed with. It's OK/good but it's missing something... I'll be trying Slackers recipe next time.

"What is "Rotel"? "

It's a brand name of canned peppers, tomatoes and spices

Got it, thanks. I'm not sure I've seen that brand around these parts, but I'm sure there are substitutions if not.

Rotel is basically canned diced tomatoes with peppers. I had never heard of it until I moved here.

1 can Rotel + 1 brick velveeta in the crock pot = super easy party dip.

SS2, try adding some bones to simmer in there with whatever else you're using. I save any steak bones, ribs etc in a bag in the freezer to use when I make red beans and rice. I imagine it would work for chili too

I do the chocolate sometimes, but less is more. Chocolate isn't there for the flavor, but to be a contrast. It brings out the peppers nicely. Same for the cinnamon. It is like adding salt - most of the time you don't want the dish to taste salty, you just want to enhance the flavor. The reverse also works - make brownies and add some heat to them, and they'll taste much more chocolatey. Pretty neat.

I do black beans as well as kidney. Goya brand seems to hold their texture better than the other canned beans and I use that whenever I can.

I've tried skipping tomatoes because I don't really like them, but without fail the chili will end up too bitter and I find myself trying to sweeten it at the last minute. Adding a small bag of frozen corn can add a bit different flavor and color, too.

The cubed steak is great. If you want you can marinate it first, perhaps with some liquid smoke in there.

Some people throw a bottle of Guinness in there. It works well, but you can run the danger of too much fluid towards the end.

I like using chipotle as my pepper. It can be a bit hard to control the heat, so be prepared for lots of tasting. If you can get the whole stuff of flakes they typically taste better than the powder, but that stuff is very useful too.

I'm yet to find the holy grail of thickening agents. I get good flavor, but haven't gotten the right consistency yet.
