Good Chili Recipe.............



What's a good chili recipe. I used to use some Tabasco chili starter. Any good ideas.

re: Good Chili Recipe.............


For a good basic start, go buy Mexene brand chili powder and use 1.5 times the powder called for in the recipe on the package. I like to use some fresh chilis too, a little garlic, a little cilantro, and I tighten it up with a little corn meal in the last 30 minutes. I also add a Hershey bar...yes a Hershey bar. It works.

I agree with you Otis, the Mexene recipe is a great starting point. I would use additional chili powder, garlic, maybe coffee for some of the liquid and tighten with masa. Oh, and of course, beans.

Here's the recipe from the bottle (I also added it to the recipe thread):

Mexene Chili

1 lb Ground beef
3/4 c Chopped onion
1 Clove garlic minced
2 tb Mexene chili powder
1 tb Flour
1 ts Salt
1/2 ts Ground cumin
1/2 ts Sugar
8 oz Tomato sauce
1 c Water


Instructions:

brown meat onion garlic together then drain excess fat. Stir in remaining ingredients mix well. Cover and simmer 30 minutes.

You sre correct about adding another powder...I usually grab Gebhart...usually add a bit more cumin too. Wish my boys loved chili as much as me and Mrs O.

I love all kinds of chili - Texas traditional, Cincinnati style, green chili, Wendy's chili - you name it. I grew up on Hormel's, and though I can still eat it, it's amazing how inferior it is to homemade.

Fresh Pickin's usually has large containers of 'Dark Chili Powder'. It's potent and flavorful.

2 lbs sirloin and 1 pound ground sausage. Brown that with a beer of your choice and 2 chopped white onions, one bell pepper, and a little celery, and chopped garlic.
Season from the start with generous amts of chili powder, cumin, salt, black pepper, paprika (for color). Also add cayenne pepper, minced habenero peppers, and brown sugar to taste.
When meat no longer pink pour in 1 large can petite diced tomatoes, one can mild rotel, one can pinto beans, none of which should be drained.
Cook on low for 2 hrs, covered, stirring every 15-20 min and pouring off water from cover.
After 2 hrs add 1 can tomato paste and more paprika for color, if needed. Also add more chile powder and cumin, salt to taste.
Cook covered on sim to low for another 2 hrs or until dinner time.

Notes: you can't skimp on the chile powder or cumin. Cook covered. Don't drain anything, including the pot after browning meat.
Serve with or without rice, small amt of shredded cheese (very small amt), small scoop of sour cream, and definitely diced white onions (uncooked)
