Cosmk: 1) go to store and buy a bunch of stuff
2) make chili


That looks like a plan. Going to do it this Saturday.

EatenTheSun: Look, it's in the official rules. No beans.

http://www.chili.org/rules.html


Damn, chili is serious business.


/Beans need to be allowed
 
2012-10-11 05:12:22 PM  
This is how you make chili. Note the absence of beans, because you don't put beans in chile rojo. If you can't get fresh arbol peppers, you can get the dried ones and soak them in hot water and rub the flesh off on a wire mesh sieve, throwing away the skins. You can also substitute other peppers (fire roasted red chili works very well) or mix and match peppers. Add a finely chopped and sauteed onion if you are so inclined. You can also use pork shoulder. For killer frito pie, use pork shoulder and green chili peppers. Serve with cornbread or corn tortillas.

rappy: kwame: rappy: Cornbread is the best.

I am 100% Southerner, and I love my cornbread, but cornbread's not the best with chili.

I don't put it in my chili, but I like it on the side sometimes. I like the spicy/sweet contrast


That ain't cornbread, Sparky.

Psylence: I'm strange; I'm a big fan of lamb based middle eastern flavored chili recipes. Am I alone?


You sound like a turrist.
 
2012-10-11 05:15:18 PM  
I am a Team Bean guy for making big batches but I'll go just meat for smaller, condiment style, batches. Chili dogs, chili burgers and chili fries get the no bean treatment.

And I guess I'll throw in another ad for my Black Friday Chili:

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of diced turkey, white and dark meat.
2 cans diced tomatoes
4 cans mixed beans (chili, kidney, black, whatever)
A couple whole jalapenos
1 Guinness
Garlic, allspice and other spices to taste.

Put everything in the crockpot following Thanksgiving dinner.
Set crockpot to low.
Serve for lunch on Friday with cheese, crackers, sour cream and more Guinness.

wildcardjack: Ras-Algethi: Oooh: Can we have cornbread as the next food discussion thread?

Only on Fark could a discussion about chili turn into a discussion about cornbread, a topic which has the depth of lard versus Crisco.


Chili and cornbread go together like beer and more beer, it's a natural discussion.

/have won awards for my cornbread at the South Plains Fair
//never entered without winning a ribbon
 
2012-10-11 05:17:39 PM  
got this from a Marlboro cook book. it's good, super easy.

1lb hamburger (or whatever sub) - brown it. add the rest, heat it up...
large can of diced tomatoes - or two of the regular 14oz cans. Drain off liquid.
Campbell's French onion soup with beef broth
can of diced green chilies
sliced black olives - optional for people without good taste.

serve with corn bread
 
2012-10-11 05:20:28 PM  
Fact - adding beans to your chili ruins what was initially a wonderfully delicious chili, and turns it into a disgusting meat-and-bean stew.

Quoting my dad though - secret ingredient/process to making an awesome chili "put one beer in the chili, then put two beers in the cook"

Purelilac: CatherineM: What do you guys eat with your chili?
Fritos, crackers, cornbread?
Is it a regional thing or a family thing?

Just toppings. If I have a little left over but not enough, I put it over spaghetti.


take some speghetti, cook to al dente, place on plate, add a layer of chili, then a hand full of medium cheddar, more chili and sour cream on tip...win

Super easy and awesome:

Taco Chili

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 med. yellow onion
1 can whole kernal corn
1 can diced tomatoes with chilis
1 can hot chili beans
1 can Campbell's tomato soup
1 small can chicken broth
1 packet taco seasoning


Cut up the onion into bits smallish bits and cook with the beef until the beef is brown.

Pour in all contents of the cans listed above.

Add and stir in the taco seasoning. (I like to add a wee bit of cayenne powder on top of this.)

Bring to a mild boil and then let cook covered on medium heat, stirring occasionally for 30-40 minutes.

When serving, place in bowl and then top with tortilla chips, followed by mild cheddar cheese, with an optional blob of sour cream.

Yes, there are beans in this. Suck it, haters.

Won me a blue ribbon at OC Fair chili/wings salsa contest

Jerk Chicken Chili

2 lbs chicken thigh meat
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2-3 cloves garlic, chopped
3-4 habanero or Scotch bonnet chilis, diced
1 can black beans, drained (or prepare from dried beans)
1 can white beans, drained (or prepare from dried beans)
2 cans (10oz) tomato sauce
1 1/2 cups water
1 tbsp allspice berries
1/2 cinnamon stick
4-5 cloves
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1/2 tsp dried ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp vegetable oil
salt
fresh black pepper

Grind all of the spices together, and season the chicken meat, let stand and warm to room temperature. In a large pot, heat oil, and add onion and garlic. Cook until soft, then add habanero. Cook three or four minutes, then add chicken. Cook until well-browned, then add tomato sauce and water. Cook until reduced to desired thickness, stirring occasionally, then add beans and cook an additional thirty minutes, carefully stirring occasionally. Check seasoning, add salt and /or pepper to taste.

For extra awesome, serve with fired patties (Jamaican meat pies).

reillan: Measuring is for wimps

I put some ground beef (maybe a quarter pound), a garlic clove (chopped), and maybe 1/4 onion (chopped) into a skillet and brown
then I add 1 can of tomato sauce, and a bit of water (who cares how much)
I add enough chili powder to bury a small country
and then I throw a bunch of chopped carrot and chopped spinach in. No idea how much.
some fresh ground pepper, some kosher salt
a bit of crushed red pepper for a bit of kick
and I cook that until it thickens roughly to the point of being building material

then I crush an entire box of crackers into it.

Best. Chili. Evah.

Sapper_Topo: 5) If you are new to making chili dont be afraid to grab a kit and tinker with that. I won my first chili cookoff using a Carrol Shelby Kit. Most of the base ingredients are very similar in most chili recipes and using a kit is a good way to get your feet wet.


Carrol Shelby kit is awesome. Ignore the instructions on the box and use it (the kit not the box) as a base to do your own thing. I've had a blast experimenting with countless pots over the years.

Barbeque is a slow cooking method involving indirect heat. Some claim you need to smoke the meat, some claim you need to dig a hole in your backyard. ie smoked pork shoulder

Grilling is when you cook food on a grill with direct heat. ie Tbone steak.

Here's a good general purpose Tex Mex seasoning blend. I make it up in big batches and use it for Tacos and for Chili.

Taco Seasoning

1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon beef bullion granules
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon red pepper

Store in an air tight container. I multiply everything by eight and make a huge batch I keep it in an old baking powder tin.

For tacos, use 3 Tablespoons of seasoning and about 3/4 cup of water.

If you don't have beef bullion granules, just add a beef bullion cube per three Tablespoons of seasoning.

Simple Vegetarian Chili

Morningstar Veggie Crumbles
Canned stewed tomatos (You can add more tomato if you like, for the texture. T sauce/paste are good additives too.)
Canned pinto beans.
Onion powder, garlic, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper to taste. ( or buy a packaged spice kit )
Good cheddar cheese for garnish.

Brown crumbles in olive oil or butter or combo.
Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer.
Let it sit for a day if you can.
Reheat, garnish with cheese and enjoy.

flucto: Lucky LaRue: Did you guys know that the whole "real chilli doesn't have beans" debate was started by a man who, after going to jail for murdering a cook-off competitor in a fit of rage, was tested with an 65 IQ?

/ True story

Bull puckies. Nobody in Texas has an IQ that high.


Fark both of y'all.

The Chili Queens of San Antonio (who invented chili) never put beans in their chili. It was straight up meat and gravy, like this:

I might go to get chili mac and cheese later...my two favorite things, just add booze!

Beans are cool if its on the side, not so much if its on, say, a chili cheese dog.
 
2012-10-11 05:50:16 PM  
I see that someone mentioned the mexican chocolate, I use that, or a very dark chocolate, I also add peanut butter as well as chilli powder, cumin, onion, garlic, chicken stock, black beans, I brown ground beef before hand. I also add a teaspoon of tomato paste, apple cider vinegar and sugar... sometimes coffee.

I taste it constantly as I cook it, I like it very dark, spicy, and slightly peanut butter cup-ish.
 
2012-10-11 05:51:56 PM  
I make a mean pot of chili, but i hardly measure anything. Meat (chopped loin and hamburger for the texture variety), garlic, cumin, chili powder, bay leaves. a little tomato paste etc.Sometimes I'll add beans. Simmer for an hour or two and it's good to go.

For thickening I use corn flour. About a cup in a six quart batch. I've also found the cheap Jiffy cornbread mix works really well too.

I plan on making a batch this weekend with some leftover brisket from a BBQ cook off I entered last month. It's been sitting in a Food Saver bag in the freezer and I'm thinking it will work out really well. I'm going the low-carb route, so no beans in this one. I haven't cooked much chili before, so I'm kinda winging it as I go along.
