orclover: Benjimin_Dover: orclover: So its a bean cook off? Are they having the Chili cook off somewhere else? Did they remember to change the name? DNRTA.

/if you add beans, you are now making beans. Blows yer mind doesnt it?

So if somebody was making beans and then threw in meat he would be making chili. Works both ways.

Sure, if you threw out the beans and then used the same pot to start cooking chili in, its not rocket science.


Sounds like sorcery to me.

I use a chicken stock and prefer to have different types of beans. Butter beans are very common in my chilli. Also use kidney and pinto, sometimes black beans. Ground turkey is used once in a while instead of the usual ground beef. I grow my own green peppers and jalapenos, cut them up and freeze them for later chilli cooking.

FirstNationalBastard: I cannot believe how many seemingly sane, rational people believe that you can have chili without beans.

I didn't know that so many supported communism, terrorism, and hated puppies and freedom.


Unfortunately, even yuck crap like Wolf and Hormel had to label their chili different due to the morons who bought it thinking it had beans in it.

Back in the day when you bought a can of chili at the store, you bought....

(a) Chili
(b) Chili w/Beans

Now you buy...

(a) Chili without Beans
(b) Chili w/Beans

I blame poor people who don't understand that beans in chili are only there to replace the meat that would be there if they weren't so damn poor.

Death Eats a Cracker: Frederick: Death Eats a Cracker: I plan to come back to this thread later hoping to see some kick ass Farker chili recipes.

My wifes secret ingrediant -shh, dont tell- bacon.

But you have to cook it first before you put it in the chili. A coworker misunderstood me on that previously and ruined his chili.

I'm embarrassed that I never thought to use bacon in my chili. About how many slices for a 5 quart crock pot?


I'm sorry -I dont really know. I'm the eater, not the maker. I dont want to ask because she might actually get upset I let out her secret. But you can it ever have too much?

NIXON YOU DOLT!!!!!: Frederick: My wifes secret ingrediant -shh, dont tell- bacon.

If you plan on leaving her anytime soon, call me!


heh heh -she's a keeper.

residentgeek: theorellior: Back in my poor bachelor days, I would make a pound of cheap beef tips last an entire week by making a chili with equal parts beef, red beans, pinto beans and black beans. Plus spices and a couple of peppers and tomatoes.

Coulda saved even more cash by simply eliminating the beef tips.


Well, I had some pride, I wanted a little meat in my chili. : )

Attention Farkers:

Things like celery, pasta, cocoa powder, mole, cinnamon, olive oil, chocolate, and corn do not belong in chili.

Additionally, please note, chili contains beans.

That is all.
 
2012-09-30 10:47:23 PM
every single person on here making chili with ground meat is wrong. beans is the least of your problemos if that's what you think goes in a chili.
 
2012-09-30 10:49:02 PM

doglover: The original chili recipe was dried peppers and venison because the men exploring the continent, the Spanish, were out for LONG expeditions and it's easier to carry a bag of dried peppers and look for deer than it is to carry as much food as you actually need.

In Texas, they like to INSIST that you don't use beans in the chili. But then they use beef instead. Might as well add skittles at that point of authenticity.


Wrong, yet again. But keep insisting you're right...it's actually amusing.
 
2012-09-30 10:56:24 PM

cheap_thoughts: Chili has beans, and my roomie from Texas will not eat it. Insists it's not to have beans. I say that he needs to get over his insecurities and just it as is.


I say two things. One, grow up and live somewhere without a roomate. And two, you're roomate is a dumbass. I'm Texan, born and raised, and never make chili without beans.

That isn't chili, sparky. That's spaghetti sauce.

LawrencePerson: "Chili with beans" makes as much sense as "kosher ham."


You obviously don't know your ass from a hole in the ground.

Late to the thread, but everyone (even Texans other than me) love this recipe

1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2-3 medium jalapenos, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced (or ¼ teaspoon garlic powder)
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
2 cans Rotel
2 cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
3 cans tomato sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste

Brown ground beef, along with onion, jalapenos, and garlic. Drain excess fat. Add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly. Cook over low heat, the longer, the better.

I adjust everything to taste, but have never had so much as one complaint about it. 

/You can substitute one kind of bean for another...they pretty much all work.

IlGreven: theorellior: As with pizza or barbecue, I'm okay with many variations on the same basic theme. Chili is good with or without beans, but I do prefer beans.

Oh, so you like to cook your meat until it could be used as a bad kid's Christmas stocking stuffer, so that the nasty sauce you put on it makes it taste better by comparison?


What you're describing is the terrible crap that passes for barbecue in Cleveland.

There's no beans in chile.

WHARGARBLE! MY WAY IS THE ONLY WAY! YOU DON'T COOK YOUR FOOD LIKE I COOK MY FOOD! HEATHEN! DIE, DIE, DIE! YOUR FOOD ISN'T REAL!

Stoplikingwhatidontlike.jpg

I mean, really? I happen to like chili, beans or no beans, beef, venison, pork, elk, squirrel, chicken, pork, boar, bear, turkey, on it's own, with cornbread, over noodles or on a hotdog, who cares? This is like BBQ. Everybody thinks their way is the best or only way, and that other methods and styles are wrong or fake. It's pathetic. Guess what? Other people like different things than you.

One big 'ol tasty vat of chili on the stove:

- 2lbs ground beef
- 2 cans of whole tomatoes
- one large onion
- 4 cloves of garlic
- one can of black beans
- one can of kidney beans
- one bottle or can of beer

As for the spices, I never measure:
- plenty of chili powder
- cumin
- red pepper flakes
- 2-3 bay leaves
- sprinkle of oregano
- optional additions I've put in before: mesquite, chipotle, Frank's hot sauce, egg noodles underneath. Also, very important: corn is an excellent addition to chili, but only add it to each individual bowl, not the whole vat. Adding the corn to chili while it cooks makes it very sweet.

Brown the meat first, then throw everything together in the pot, turn it on low, cover it, stir it once and awhile, and have food in 2-3 hours. I like it with Italian bread or saltine crackers.

There used to be a great chilli place in Baltimore call Cafe Tattoo. It was a tattoo place in the front and a take out chilli place in the back. The cook was an old hippy and it was open when he felt like it but man there was some good chilli there. I was talking to him one day as he was getting ready to go west to a big competition and I asked him which one he was making as he had 3-4 different kinds. He told me he was going in to the desert the day before and what he shot was what was going into the chilli. The year before it was rattlesnake.

NFA: Frederick: I dont understand chili without beans. Sounds like meat sauce.....
What? Haven't you ever eaten spaghetti without pasta?
/me neither


O_o
so nothing then?

pxlboy: Gulper Eel: I drop a turkey neck in mine just to have something unpleasant-looking protruding from the chili as it cooks.

That's hilarious and disgusting. Troll on!


It started when I remembered that when I was a kid I used to love eating the chicken hearts that my grandmother tossed into the epic soups she would make...so I figured how bad could it be if I pitched some chicken hearts into the chili?

Turns out it's still mighty good. Some day I'll give it a try with beef heart, although nothing beats the turkey neck for visual weirdness.

FWIW at this late juncture. If you like putting beans in your chili, fine, but I don't understand why some insist that it "isn't chili if it DOESN'T have beans." That indicates that the only beanless chili you've probably had is the ground-beefy hot dog topping kind and not the chunky meaty kind. Chili can be good with or without beans but it makes a difference what kind of meat you are using too.

I prefer it without beans, or with few beans. Also noticed the recipes here calling for what seems like HUGE quantities of a bunch of different kinds of beans. At that point I'm almost inclined to say you should just call it bean stew. Doesn't mean it isn't really tasty, but I might recommend as an experiment toning down the beans a bit and turning up the meat (chunks of stewmeat, venison, pork, whatever. instead of ground beef).

Another basic tip if you want to enhance your chili (if you've never tried) - use fresh finely diced peppers of your choice (jalapeno is decent) (use gloves) and saute your onions and peppers and so forth before simmering the chili. Also cumin is the thing that makes chili taste like what most people probably think chili should taste like. I also substitute beer for most of whatever liquid the basic recipe might call for which seems to work great as long as you have a good long simmer time.

Why, because I don't have to rely on a roomate to pay my rent?

In Spanish, the "chile" refers to a chile pepper and "carne" means meat. The first documented recipe for "chile con carne" is dated September 2, 1519. The ingredients were boiled tomatoes, salt, chiles and meat. Bernal Diaz del Castillo, one of Hernan Cortez's Captains and the source of the recipe, states in his book, that the Cholulan Indians, allied with the Aztecs, were so confident of victory in a battle against the Conquistadors the following day that they had "already prepared cauldrons of tomatoes, salt and chiles" in anticipation of a victory feast. The one missing ingredient, the meat, was to be furnished by the Conquistadors themselves: their own flesh. (The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico--Bernal Diaz del Castillo)

Cannot stand "chili" that has beans. Worse yet: elbow noodles. WTF?

/also needs to be hotter than hell. like, 'if you start eating slower it hurts more' kind of hot
//hello, "chili"? can't have a mild version of a dish named after a hot farking fruit

We don't really have chili in my part of the world. We have some pretty good tex-mex restaurants which probably serve it but I've never gone past the tacos and burritos.

The recipes here look pretty good but I haven't seen much mention of cayenne, and not a single mention of paprika. Would these not go well?

Cayenne - Yes. I use a palm full in mine
Paprika - No. Its flavor is too weak and gets lost in the mix
