    Make a few pots and send one to me please. Yum.

    Consider using turkey meat for one batch and beef/pork for the
    second batch. Some people only like turkey meat for the health

    Real chili doesn't have beans but I love using beans in mine or
    just making a bean chili.

    Last thought, steamed rice is great to pour chili on top of. If the
    chili is super hot then it dilutes the heat.

    i dont really have a recipe. Just hamburger, kidney beans, salt and pepper, chilli seasoning, couple tbsp sugar, tomoto juice, garlic, onion. I think thats it but my secret ingredient is a little cinnamon. It adds a little something that people just cant put their finger on.
  5. Country living had a cowboy chili receipe that i tried and really loved. I printed it off but you can go to www.delish.com/receipefinder/cowboy-chili ,atleast that isthe web add on what i printed off. marrie

    I make a cheater chili which is good and hearty but not so spicy as to keep me up all night with heartburn. I just make however much strikes me.

    Get a cheap beef or pork roast. Cook til done by simmering in a crock pot with lots of garlic and onions.
    Cool and chunk up. Reserve broth for something else, like tamales.

    Put the meat back in the crock with either cooked or canned beans of your choice. Add a couple pints of those tomatoes you canned in the summer, add some more onion and garlic. Season to taste with chili powder, cumin or whatever. (I use a pack or 2 of premade mild chili seasoning mix, thus the cheater part. [​IMG] )

    Simmer for an hour or so till well cooked and flavors meld. Thicken with flour if desired or needed.

    Serve topped with shredded cheese, sourdough bread, and whatever chili sauce you like.

    We like to use those small sourdough bread bowls.

    I have an excellent recipe for "Texas Beer Chili" that my mother-in-law gave me. It uses chuck roast instead of ground beef, and of course a can of beer. I make it in the crock pot, so it's very easy. I don't have the recipe with me right now, so I'll try to post it tonight.
