Chili.
« on: May 28, 2008, 10:52:51 pm »
Just got done finishing a bowl of chili tonight for dinner and the idea of this thread came up. ;) So.........

Any chili fans here? How do you like your chili?
Beans or no beans?
Meaty or meatless?
Favorite ingredients?
Non-favorite ingredients?
How hot can you stand it?
Got any favorite recipes?

For myself, I prefer a hearty chili with lots of meat, some beans but not a lot, onion, maybe green pepper or celery, diced tomato, tabasco sauce. and LOTS of shredded cheddar cheese! Gotta have the cheese!  :D

Yes, I posted in red cause chili is a "hot" subject.  :D

I LOVE my moms red chili.

All it has is the beef in it. Mild in hotness.

The last time I made Chili, I made it with these ingredients:

3 pounds cubed beef
1 Pork Shank, skinned, deboned, and cubed
3 32oz. cans jalopenos, destemmed and chopped
2 Lbs. hot red peppers that were allegedly Anaheims, but looked more like hot cherry peppers, destemmed and chopped
2 chipotle peppers, minced as small as possible
2 Large Onions, diced
2 Lbs fresh mushrooms, sliced
2 bulbs garlic, peeled and minced
1/2 cup dried oregano to taste
1 tablespoon dried mustard powder
1 tablespoon ground Cinnamon (Mexican Acacia variety, not the asian)
1 cup plus extra chili powder to taste (yes, you read right, 1 CUP plus extra to taste)
1/2 cup Cumin Powder
4 32oz cans whole tomatoes
7-8 bay leaves
5 large carrots, chopped, and added about a half hour before ending the 3 hour simmering process.

The meat was browned first on relatively high heat with some salt, then I switched the heat to low and added the onions, garlic, peppers, mushrooms, spices, the tomatoes, and finally the carrots towards the end.

The canned Jalopenos used were the slightly pickled variety.

The above recipe will make a LOT of chili, and conversely can be used to feed a lot of people, cheese is optional, though instead of cheddar or Jack, consider trying Mexican Asadero, or Queso Quesadilla.

I like chili with the works. One rule: must make me sweat. If your guests aren't developing a rash, then add more chilis. Weaker individuals should be gasping for air.

I can't stand bland chili. It's like hamburger helper or something. They call it chili for a reason, so no skimping on the chilis!

It's good for sinus congestion too.

I like most kinds of chili. 

Beans or no beans? 
Beans, please! 

Meaty or meatless? 
I like both, but prefer the meat. 

Favorite ingredients? 
Beans, meat, onions, tomatoes, peppers, garlic, celery

Non-favorite ingredients?
Mushrooms

How hot can you stand it?
As I get older I can't handle the hot stuff, sadly.

Got any favorite recipes?
I love thick meaty chunky chili with cheddar cheese, either as-is or over a baked potato. 

I also love Cincinnati-style chili, I always have a 5-way (Cinci chili over spaghetti with beans, onions, and cheese)

Ah, it brings back my navy days. Chili mac was a standard recipe aboard ship. Chili Mac is  why I kept a few bottles of Tabasco sauce, the all purpose flavor enhancer and killer.

Chili is one of those interesting things that varies by region.  Personal preference aside, I think that there is no 'one' chili that beats all others.  Before I moved, I had recently acquired a book that contained over 20 national championship winning recipes.  I fully intend to make and eat them all!

I like a wide variety of chili, just like I like a lot of different foods.

I don't as much spice as I used to, but I still like a good spicey chili that isn't a screamer.

Mmmm, chili cheese fries! :)

There are a lot of very good kinds of chili and no single rule really applies. I like my dad's chili that uses a variety of beans (kidney beans, pinto beans and butter beans), lots of homemade salsa and a mixture of ground sirloin and Italian pork sausage. My grandma's chili is more sweet than spicey and incorporates the oft dreaded macaroni, but I believe it has its place, albeit not my favorite. The chili I make most often is vegetarian. I used to use the Morning Star veggie burger crumbles, but now simply mix together black beans, red beans, butter beans, corn with home-canned organic tomatoes, plenty of cilantro, fresh garlic, onions and an assortment of peppers. If I feel like meat, I add ground bison and incorporate some Montreal steak seasoning.

Ultimately, my favorite chili is one that is more smokey than hot. Served at the Red Mill restaurant, it incorporates kidney beans, peppers, onions and cubed beef roast into a smokey sauce (I'm told that liquid smoke adds a lot of the flavor). Very thick and rich.
