I make my own, but when I do I usually make my simple/lazy chili recipe. It's good, but it actually doesn't exactly line up with all my preferences for chili. It is pretty meaty, though, which is always good. It's the recipe that my mom made when I was growing up, but I've modified it a bit.

The recipe, in the simplest form:

1lb Ground Beef
1 can Baked Beans
1 can Chili beans (usually use Bush's brand for both types of beans)
Either 1 can Condensed Tomato Soup (thinner chili) or 1 6oz can Tomato Paste (thicker chili)
1 T Minced (dried) Onion or Onion Powder
Salt and Pepper to taste

Brown the meat. For a crock pot, throw the browned meat and everything else in the crock pot with a little water and mix it all up. Leave it on high for a couple hours, or on low for several hours. For quicker prep, throw it all in the skillet with the beef (if the skillet is large enough), or dump everything into a larger sauce pan and cook it until it's hot. My preference is to start it up in the morning on a weekend or day off work, and just leave it in a crock pot on low all day. It always tastes better the longer you cook it.

Now, if you want to fancy it up with a smidge of extra effort, you could replace the onion with an actual diced onion, add a clove of garlic, throw in some chili powder, and some ground cayenne pepper. This is usually how I make it. But I just kinda eyeball the quantities for everything.

I like my chili the following:
Hot and spicy.
Little or no beans.
The meatier, the better!
Sometimes with other vegetables like diced onion, red & green pepper.
And I love to top off a bowl of chili with shredded cheddar cheese.  :) A bowl of chili just isn't complete without the cheese. I gotta have the cheese!

I make my own.
For the real Texan Chilli I may only use beans for  leftovers in chili pie. I use a homemade chili paste using dried chilies. I play around with the type.  I use cubed  beef.

I also do a Cincinnati chili  5 way, (chili, spaghetti, cheese, onions, and beans)

I like delicious spin I spicy chili! With lots of beans and meat! My dad or grandma usually makes it but we always end up using canned tomatoes and stuff, so it's not really homemade... Then I don't like it as much... We normally just take a big hunk of beef, cook it separately and drain it a bit (although I think it adds some good flavors if you don't) and then mix mix mix!! With lots of pepper and seasonings and deliciousness! Also, a very nice way to boost the flavoryness, add a packet of some taco seasoning, it tastes very good! :D
I just got mai computer fixed!! :D :3

I made a pot of Chili this weekend. I used beef chuck cut in small cubes and  and mixture of dried chilies (ancho, California chile  ) and a chipotle for an extra kick. Out of respect for Texas, left out the beans.   I found a recipe for  jalapeno corn bread. I broke out my 8" skillet; originally I was going to do  fried corn but i decided  to dump an extra cup of corn in the corn bread.

Tonight I am using the same jalapeno corn bread and leftover chili  to make chili pie

Vegetarian chili for me. I'll add things like black beans and tofu as substitutes for beef.

My favorite ingredient is cayenne pepper, as much as I can tolerate. I've built up a high tolerance. Then I blast the heat away afterward by eating some yogurt.

I love chili. And I'll eat pretty much any type of chili, but I like a lot more meat than beans. Today I actually made sweet pumpkin chili for the first time. I have a base recipe that I go off of and change each time I make it. Sometimes I like it sweet and others spicy. I usually use a cheap beer for my regular chili, but for my pumpkin one I didn't. Next time I am going to make it with a pumpkin ale though.

I like using different meats in my Chilli, so far my favourite has been Chicken and chorizo Chilli. I tend to use a lot of meat and beans, fresh Tomato or homemade passata, fresh Chilli peppers, cayenne pepper and homegrown garlic. I also add a little sugar to it, people seem to like it :)
