|A Red Chili Nightmare|
Ingredients (4 servings)Instructions
1. Place the rinsed beans in a bowl, add 2 to 3 cups of water and soak overnight. Check the beans occasionally and add water as necessary to keep them moist.~ 2. Pour the beans and the water in which they were soaked into a heavy saucepan and add 2 to 3 more cups of water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then lower heat and simmer, partially covered, for about 45 minutes, until the beans are cooked but still firm. Check occasionally and add water if necessary. Drain the beans, reserving the cooking liquid.~ 3. Melt the lard in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Add the beans and lightly fry them in the lard. Set aside.~ 4. Melt the drippings in a large heavy pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it is translucent.~ 5. Combine the sausage and the beef with all the spices up through the oregano. Add this meat-and-spice mixture to the pot with the onion. Break up any lumps with a fork and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is very well browned.~ 6. Add the reserved bean-cooking liquid to the pot. Stir in all the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and cook, uncovered, for 1/2 hour longer. Stir occasionally. Add water only if necessary to maintain the consistency of a chunky soup.~ 7. Taste when curiosity becomes unbearable and courage is strong. Adjust seasonings.~
|Abilene, TX, Anual Chile Super Bowl|
We just had our annual Chili Super Bowl (Abilene, TX). They make a pot to feed 5000. It's BIG pot. This recipe is pretty good too.
You will want to multiply the recipe items by 10.
Brown beef and drain. Add all ingredients and cover. Cook for 7-17 hours on medium high. Good luck!

|Alabama Picnic Chilli|
Combine the beef base, tomato juice, chopped veggies, cocoa and 4 tespoons of powdered garlic in a dutch oven over a low (simmer) flame.
Divide the hamburger into three more-or-less equal batches and brown it in a separate skillet. Add 1 teaspoon per batch of chilli powder. When browned and crumbled drain excess fat and add to dutch oven. Repeat until all ground beef is in the chilli pot. Add the black pepper to the chilli pot.
Stir in 1 tablespoon per pound of meat of the chilli powder (5 Tb for this batch). Cover pot and let simmer, stirring once in a while. When the onions and peppers are cooked (about 1 1/2 hr) taste the pot.
You will probably find that you'll need to add the remaining tablespoon of garlic powder and the teaspoon of ground cumin. You may also want to add an additional tablespoon of chilli powder at this time. Trust me on the garlic and cumin. It adds the final kick. Neysa tasted before and after and could not believe how much difference it made. Simmer for an additional 10 to 15 minutes and serve.
For those desiring a hotter product add cayenne until your lips turn numb and your sinuses drain if you like. I made this batch extra-mild in deference to picnic attendees who don't handle heat real well. Sadly, Maya Houston thought it was still too hot after she tasted a spoonful.
Here is one of mine that is a good starting point for experimenting. I use my own chilli mix... but Gebhardt's, Mexene or Chilli Man will work pretty well. Ray's Chilli owner says he is bringing out a line of chilli mix as soon as he finds a spice company to mix and package to his recipe. Apparently it has different requirements from using spices to can chilli.
As noted - this recipe starts extra mild as a base line in deference to the non chile heads for whom I made it. Add heat or chipotles to suit yourself. Black or pinto beans will work - add them AFTER the chilli is cooked.

|Bad Attitude Chile|
Sautee 1/4 of the garlic and onions until translucent. Add 1/4 of the meat, chile powder and brown. Salt the meat while cooking. Put into your chili pot. Cast iron is best. Repeat until all the meat is done. Put the rest of the ingredients in you chili pot and simmer for for a hour. As in any recipe, the amount of ingredients is variable. Add more of anything you want, especially chiles.
You now have the power. Use it wisely. The eyes of Texas are upon you!
|Beef Chipotle Chile|
If using canned chipotle chilies, in a blender puree them with the water and reserve the puree. If using dried chipotle chilies, stem and seed them wearing rubber gloves, in a small bowl let them soak in the boiling hot water for 20 minutes, and in a blender puree the mixture, reserving the puree.
In a large heavy kettle cook the onions and 6 of the garlic cloves, minced, in the oil over moderate heat,
stirring, until the onions are softened, add cumin, and cook the mixture, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the beef
and cook the mixture, stirring and breaking up the lumps, until the meat is no longer pink. Add the reserved
chipotle puree, the tomatoes, broth, bay leaf, oregano, and salt and simmer the mixture, uncovered, adding more
water if necessary to keep the beef barely covered, for 30 minutes. Stir in the bell pepper, canned green chilies,
and cornmeal and simmer the mixture, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Stir in the kidney beans, coriander
and remaining 2 garlic cloves, minced, and salt to taste, simmer the chili for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the
beans are heated through, and discard the bay leaf. The chili may be frozen or made 3 days in advance, cooled,
uncovered, and kept covered and chilled.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings

|Black Bean Chili|
If you are using fermented beans, prepare them ahead. Rinse them several times, then soak them in water for 3 hours (or overnight). Rinse again. Puree with 1 cup stock.
In a large saucepan on medium heat, cook onion in oil until translucent (about 6 - 8 minutes). Add garlic, cumin seed, and chopped pepper, and cook 5 minutes more. Reduce heat to low. Add remaining stock, 1/2 cup cilantro, cocoa powder, cumin, chili powder, beans, tomatoes, and black bean sauce or pureed fermented bean mixture. Simmer about 5 minutes. Add lime zest. Simmer for 15 minutes more, then add lime juice and correct seasoning. The longer it simmers the thicker it will become. Add the remaining 1/2 cup cilantro about 3 minutes before serving.
Soak black beans in water for 3 hours and then rinse. Fermented black beans (packaged in small plastic bags), are available in Asian markets. Their musky flavor cannot be duplicated, but they are salt-cured, so soaking is essential. The Chinese black bean sauce found in most grocery stores is made with these beans. However, it often contains lots of garlic, so decrease the garlic by 1 tsp. To serve, ladle into warmed bowls and garnish with Salsa and sour cream, yogurt, or cilantro Creme Fraiche.
Yield: 6 servings.
|Black Bean Chili With Smoked Pork|
Cover and soak beans overnight or longer. Start the smoker and when hot, put the pork loin on the smoker, using your favorite wood for flavor. (I used hickory.) Smoke for an hour or so at 225F and then hold until you're ready to start assembly. Pour everything in a stock pot except the tomatoes, jalapenos and, of course, the garnishes. Keep covered with water and cook 6 hours on low heat (cover the pot but leave cracked slightly open to allow a bit of steam to escape). Add additional water as necessary. After 6 hours, remove meat and shred. Put the shredded pork back in the pot and add tomatoes and jalapenos (as many as you want) and cook another hour or until thickened. Serve in individual dishes along with garnishes. Garnish with chopped cilantro, sour cream, chopped onion, diced avocado and shredded cheese.

|Black Hole Chile|
1 National Radio Astronomy Observatory
2 Groupie, 1978 Luckenbach Ladies World Chili Championship
7.5 lb meat -- /u/tough/u/ meat such as chuck, defatted and deboned This is a lot, and can feed 50-75 people if sufficiently hot chili is prepared.
Combine the oil, garlic and meat and cook till brown. If you didn't realize that the meat must be in 1 cm cubes, start cutting.
Start deseeding (the seeds are too hot) and boil in a few quarts of water until they are soft, then scrape the inside pulp out. Add to meat mixture when the meat begins to brown, reserving the chili water.
Now add 2.5 cups water or beer, plus 1.5 cups of the water you boiled the peppers in, and simmer slowly in the pot for 80 minutes while you win moseyin' and egg toss contests, and just generally fall down a lot. Now let your chili settle and the grease rise so that you can skim discard it (the grease, not the meat). Dispense with all remaining sobriety.
ADDITION OF SPICES CEREMONY
Gather the team and groupies together for this ceremony. This is the point to go all out for showmanship, so ham it up. Hopefully you have ground the following spices freshly, so that laborious grinding processes do not sap the climax of its power.
8 tablespoons or more paprika, from a container prominently labelled 'cayenne pepper' -- accompanied by a crescendo of frenzied shouting and counting of tablespoons. If your team can still count high enough, add 24 teaspoons instead.
4 oz tomato paste after the hubbub has died down and no judges are looking. Remember, real men do not put vegetables in their chili.
1 tsp exotic spice could be added here, too. At Luckenbach, the Brides of Black Hole added mint and epizote. No one knew, or knows yet, what epizote is. The more obscure the spice, the better.
0.5 tbl masa harina -- or less, to thicken the chili if it is too thin. This must be added last.
Cook 10 more minutes Open up a beer and dish up a bowl 'o' red.

|Bowl Of Compassion Vegetarian Chili|
Saute onions, garlic, and peppers in oil until onions are translucent. Add spices and simmer for two minutes. Stir in remaining ingredients, adding the TVP last. You can adjust the amount of TVP to obtain the desired texture and consistency. You can substitute beer for the water for a more unique flavor. One jalapeno makes a mild chili (two were used for the cookoff). Simmer from four to six hours. It's even better the next day.

Sift all the ingredients together and store in a tightly sealed jar.
|Chesapeake Bay Chili|
1. In a heavy skillet or saucepan, melt the butter and sauté the scallions and celery
until soft. Add the shrimp and sauté until pink.
2. In a small bowl, combine the cream and milk and stir in the flour until smooth. Add the cream mixture to the skillet along with the salt, pepper, celery salt, and chili powder. Stir and cook over low heat until the mixture thickens. Gently stir in the crabmeat and eggs.
3. Serve at once; this chili does not improve with age. Serve on white rice.
Note from Dave Drum, email@example.com
I've made this chilli in the past and there are a couple of caveats.... mainly, don't use fake crab. It does not handle cooking well. Real crab can be 'spensive - but, better a bit of extravagance than a pot of ruint chilli.
The other thing is - be subtle with the chiles/heat. It's nice to have a wakeup call in the dish. But, it's awfully easy to overpower the delicate flavours in this "chilli" (purists will argue that this ain't really chilli - everyone is entitled to an opinion).
You can also add leftover lobster meat (yeah, right!), scallops and/or pollock (cheap stuff) filets to stretch out the quantity.
But in all cases, be sparing with the chilli "powder" (I suspect that they mean "chilli mix"). In any event it would be nice if receipe writers would specify what "chilli powder" they used. If it's straight ground chile it makes a big difference to the flavour. If it's chilli mix it makes a difference since the formulation will vary from packer to packer.
But, if you get a chance to make this, by all means, be decadent. As Joe Schlitz used to say - "We only go around once in life. Grab for all the gusto you can get." ***********************
|Chicken Cashew Chili|
Heat a small skillet over high heat until very hot. Place chiles in pan, one at a time and press down with tongs for about 1 minute on each side. Next, seed and devein the chiles. Place chiles in a blender with cashews and chicken stock. Puree until smooth.
In a stock pot, briefly saute onion, garlic, cumin, chile powder, and salt in the olive oil.
Add chicken and stir to coat. Stir in chile puree, cilantro, and tomatoes. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
Add cashews, chocolate and beans. Stir until chocolate melts. Serve
NOTES : For spicy chili, add 2 or 3 chipotles to the puree and double the chile powder.
|Chili Powder #1|
1. Break up the New Mexico, chipotle, and mulato chiles. Toast the chiles in
small batches on an ungreased skillet, or comal over medium heat until they
just begin to release their aroma. Do not let them darken or the may become bitter.
2. Toast the cumin, coriander, and cloves on an ungreased skillet, or comal over low heat until they release their fragrance and become lightly roasted, about three minutes.
3. Grind the toasted spices and celery seed (best to use a spice grinder).
4. Grind the chiles in a spice grinder or food processor.
5. Mix the ground chiles, spices, and ground cayenne. This receipe is an adaptation of one appearing in "New Southwestern Cooking" by Dille & Belsinger. Since I never have the chiles called for in the receipe, I invariably "wing it." The spices seem to be the important factor so substituting different chiles doesn't make a major difference in the finished product.

|Chile With GOOD Cornbread|
First brown the meat cubes in a little olive oil, add the green chile salsa, turn off stove and let it sit all day, and all night as well. Next day, re-heat the mess, add the other chiles, and the beans, drained, and hold the tomatoes. Let cook for about two hours on simmer, then mix some flour with the juice from the tomatoes, and shake in a shake jar, add the tomatoes to the chile, cook some more, and add the thickener. Adjust seasoning, salt, freshly ground black pepper(all the stuff the kooks say is bad for you)and more heat if not hot enough, I add the hab powder to the meat, first, then adjust the heat later at the end.
SERVE with this corn bread:
Pre heat oven to 375 F Melt bacon drippings in 9 " cast iron skillet Combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder & salt in a mixing bowl.Stir in the cheese and chiles. Separately beat together the milk, eggs and oil, and stir in the dry ingredients until moistened, then pour batter into hot pan and bake at 375 F for 30 - 35 minutes.

1. Mix chile powders, cumin, and oregano in small bowl and stir in 1/2 cup water to form thick paste; set aside. Toss beef cubes with salt; set aside.
2. Fry bacon in large, heavy soup kettle or dutch oven over medium-low heat until fat renders and bacon crisps, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with slotted spoon to paper towel-lined plate; pour all but 2 teaspoons fat from pot into small bowl; set aside. Increase heat to medium-high; sauté meat in four batches until well-browned on all sides, about 5 minutes per batch, adding additional 2 teaspoons bacon fat to pot as necessary. Reduce heat to medium, add 3 tablespoons bacon fat to now-empty pan. Add onion; sauté until softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add garlic and jalaneño; sauté until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes. Add reserved bacon and browned beef, crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce, lime juice, and 7 cups water; bring to simmer. Continue to cook at steady simmer until meat is tender and juices are dark, rich, and starting to thicken, about 2 hours.
3. Mix masa harina with 2/3 cup water (or cornstarch with 3 Tbsp. water) in small bowl to form smooth paste. Increase heat to medium; stir in
paste and simmer until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Adjust seasoning generously with salt and ground black pepper. Serve immediately, or
preferably, cool slightly, cover, and refrigerate overnight for up to 5 days. Reheat before serving.
*Note: The author suggests refrigerating the finished product overnight to allow the flavors to develop. He also suggests adding peanut butter and/or unsweetened chocolate to enhance the earthiness and to add creaminess. Enjoy!

Mix all the meat in a large kettle, then cut open the chorrizo wrapping and squeeze out the contents into the mixture of the 4 lbs. of other meats. Brown the meat, stirring occasionally to mix well. Once the meat has browned, add the tomato sauce, beer (or wine) and all of the seasonings. It is a good idea at this early juncture to use only half of the chili pepper and oregano and reserve the rest until later so that you can season to your taste.
Cook over low-medium heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, then reduce heat to low and cover. Cook covered for 1 hour, stirring from time to time. Sample for taste, increase seasoning as desired, and cook on low for another hour, stirring occasionally.
Sample again and add additional cumin, chili pepper, oregano, Jalapenos to
suit your taste; turn off heat and place in the refrigerator over night.
Reheat on the following day and serve. For an especially tasty Presentation,
serve up in bowls and sprinkle the top with chopped white onions and shredded

salt and freshly ground black pepper and cayenne pepper to taste Cook the onions, garlic and chiles in a little olive oil until the onions are transparent, remove to a dish, add a little more oil, heat the pan to hot and brown the beef chunks. Do not burn them, and when they are all nicely browned, throw the veggies back in, and add the flour, mixing it around well....add the chicken broth(use beef broth if you wish)and cook on a simmer for about two hours, checking that it does not stick,or become too thick...if it starts getting too thick, add a little more broth. Taste it at this point, and season to taste....there is NO canned chili powder in this recipe...add more cumin if desired. Cheers, Doug in BC

In a heavy pot, render the bacon until crisp, then add the meat and fry in batches so it browns. Scoop out the meat and set aside. Cook the onions and garlic in the fat until soft. If you're worried about health, drain off the extra fat at this point. Add the chile powder, paprika, cumin and salt, fry for bit and put the meat back in. Toss everying around so it's well coated. Add enough water to cover, put a heavy lid on it and simmer for a couple hours. When it's close to serving, stir in some masa harina or cornstarch and water to thicken a little. Serve it with chopped onion, chiles, and cilantro if you want.

Sauté onions and 12 of the scallions in the olive oil until golden Add bell pepper, 4 of the chopped garlic cloves, and chopped serranos and continue sautéing several minutes
Lower heat to medium low and add harissa and drained fava beans and cook for 5 minutes stirring often, taking care not to burn anything At this point transfer everything to a large soup or chili pot Add chopped tomatoes, honey, Doc's Special, vinegar, and all dry ingredients Simmer for 30 minutes, or until beans have thickened the chili nicely (you may have to add water (or tomato sauce) as needed, if it thickens too much, but by and large this is a thick sort of chili, often scooped up with pieces of pita bread)
During final 2 minutes of cooking, add mint, parsley, and cilantro Remove from heat and add the 4 remaining chopped garlic cloves With a potato masher, mash the fava beans completely right in the pot, and stir thoroughly after mashing is finished
Top individual servings with lots of feta and goat cheese, and the remaining scallions, and drizzle extra virgin olive oil liberally (you may use either feta or goat, but I like it with both) If you do not like either of these cheeses, you may omit them, but something creamy ought to be added to tame the heat (perhaps a dollop of creme fraiche or sour cream)
Serve over long grain basmati rice, or bowtie pasta, with warm pita wedges on the side
Mild hummus is an excellent accompaniment to help put out the fire (think of it as the guacamole with this chili)
To be cute, when I served this I put out a bottle each of King Tut, and Queen Nefertiri Hot Sauces (both contain Egyptian spices and are quite good). I sprinkled a few drops of each on mine, but none of my four chile-loving (and chili-loving) guests reached for any. That made me both content and dissapointed.

|Elk Sausage Chile Chili|
Start in a pot with at least 1.5 gallon capacity. I generally cook the meat completely, add some extra water to cover meat and bring to a good boil. Set in a cold place to let the grease congeal at the top. (I use this time to get all the veggies ready, get out the spices, etc.) When the grease is thickened, scrape it off the top.
Pre-heat oven and cookie sheet to 300 degrees. Spread the garlic, onions, and raw peppers out on a lightly buttered sheet. Leave in oven 10 minutes, then broil until the thinnest edges of veggies just start to turn brown. Stir and broil as long as you can without much more browning. Dump veggies into the pot with the meat, start cooking and add tomatoes, dried chiles and celery.
As veggies and meat are cooking with a slow boil, begin adding non-salted spices. Stir occasionally. Add water as needed to maintain a
stew consistency. Gradually add all ingredients except soup and beans, adding salted items a little at a time to keep the mix from getting too
much salt for your taste. Add pepper powder or veins to increase heat as desired. (However the heat seems when you are finished, it will be
slightly hotter the next day. I have to consider this when cooking, as my wife and kids are not CHs.) When the raw tomatoes are nearly cooked,
add the soup, and bring back to a boil, stirring often. Add the beans, juice and all. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring regularly. If possible, let
cool overnight and re-heat before serving. Re-skim grease if necessary before heating. Serve with grated cheddar cheese added to serving.
Makes about 1.2 gallons (if beans are added).
Total Caories... I have no idea.
Total Salt...... Don't ask.
Total Fat....... Not much if you skim the grease, and even less if you use low fat cheese.

|Glen's "Green Floater" Chili|
Start browning the meat in a LARGE pot. Add the garlic. Start chopping the vegetables in the order listed and add to the pot as you chop them. Stir after each addition. Add the peppers whole. DO NOT CUT UP! If you do, the chili will be brutally hot! Add in the juice from the canned tomatoes, and add the chopped canned tomatoes. Simmer all this for 2-3 hours. Add in the beans. Simmer another 30 minutes to heat the beans and serve. This is best made the day before, refrigerated, and then reheated before serving. Serve the chile and add a "floater" or two for those who like their food hot.
NOTE: If you get to some point in adding ingredients that your pan starts to overflow, divide what you have into two pans, then split the remaining ingredients between the pots.
HINT: Adjust seasonings to your liking. Adding more ground red pepper will make it hotter. Adding more whole chiles will not make the chili itself any more hotter, but you sure will have more "green floaters"!
BEWARE: You can use other chiles that what I listed, but be very careful that the ones you use do not have thin skins or they will break apart
during cooking and cause the chile to be very hot! The large green chiles are not well suited for this, as their skins are too tough! Besides they are mild!

|Graeme's 'Last Resort' Chili|
24 hours before starting to cook the chili, place the dried black beans in a bowl and cover with cold water. 12 hours before starting to cook the chili, take the meat and chile peppers out of the freezer and let them defrost. Drain the water from the black beans and recover with fresh cold water.
When ready to cook, drain the black beans. Place into a saucepan, cover with fresh cold water, bring to the boil and cook vigorously for 20 minutes. Drain and put to one side.
Cover the dried onions in boiling water and let stand for 10 minutes.
In a casserole, crockpot or suitable stove top cooking container, brown the meat in the oil. Add the sweet peppers.
De-stem the chile peppers and place in a food processor. Chop up finely. DO NOT remove seeds or veins from the chile peppers.Add to the cooking pot.
Add the onions, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper to the cooking pot. Add the tomatoes, breaking them up into small chunks in the pot. Add the beans.
Stir well and reduce to a simmer once bubbling. Cook for 1-2 hours.
Serve with rice or crusty bread. Add Hot-Pepper Sauce as required.
** use a can of Baked Beans if dried black beans unavailable.

* I substituted boneless country-style pork ribs for the lean pork. Apply dry rub the night before, cover, refidgerate. ( I made a simple dry rub of ancho powder, paprika, salt, pepper, garlic powder, just a dash of cayenne powder and half a dash of cumin. ) Then I smoked the pork over pecan wood for approx. 2 hours. I also cut the meat into 1/2 inch cubes instead of 1 inch. *
* * I cut the amount of cumin in half * *
* * * I omitted the hot green chiles to keep it on the mild side. * * *
Heat Dutch oven or medium saucepan over high. Saute onion, garlic, oregano and cumin until onion is clear. Add green chiles, saute and stir. Add pork cubes and stir to seize all sides of the pork; add lime juice and mix.
Now add chicken stock, stopping when most of the pork cubes are covered with liquid. Stir well, reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and set the timer for 30 minutes. Check occasionally to make sure the stuff isn't scorching on the bottom. When the timer goes off, check the consistency and either add more stock if it's gotten thicker/drier than you like it, or raise the heat and cook uncovered to thicken if it's too runny. Add salt and black pepper now.

|Hank's Hot Lava Chili|
Brown the turkey lightly in a skillet with a little olive oil. In a crock pot, combine all the other ingredients except for the cilantro. Add the turkey, straining out any residual liquid. Stir careully. Be sure to have enough liquid in the pot so that the top layer doesn't dry out overnight. Use stout, not water. (Try using a little tequila too.) Add the cilantro about 20 minutes before serving time for best flavor.
Cook on a low setting overnight. Taste in the morning, adjust your seasonings and enjoy, plain or over rice.

|Jim Campbell's Insane Chile Base|
Just got done with a chili cook-off at the Eiteljorg Museum here in Indy. My chili included (but was not limited to): 1/4 lb dried Red Savina (tm), 1/8 lb smoked hab, 1/2 lb fresh habs, 1/4 lb of Tepins & Serranos & Piquins, 1 bottle of Ralphs', and one ENTIRE bottle of Backdraft. All this for about 3 gallons of chili. I had the proper warning signs up, including serving the chili up in full firefighting gear and breathing apparatus. The best reactions were always those that were preceeded by the declaration "I'm from Texas/Arizona, boy- you don't know what hot is. Now back there they have REAL hot chili. Let's try this stuff of yours that you think is hot." It's less than three seconds later & they were usually crying/dancing/whooping/hollering/cussing/quaffing prodigiously and muttering. All this while I'd horse laugh them, which made it even worse ;-) I only wish I'd had some bread to serve it to them on....
|Judy's Redeye Chile|
*I use home-grown powdered chiles, Ancho, NM, etc.
In a small skillet brown sausage. Drain and reserve. Pour oil into a large stockpot and sauté onion, ground
beef and garlic. Cook until meat is lightly browned. Drain grease. Add rest of ingredients except jalapenos.
Cook for 1-1/2 hr. and then add beans and salt to taste. Simmer for 30 minutes more. Thicken with masa
harina mixed with a little water if necessary.
Serve with chopped onions, shredded Monterey Jack cheese, chopped Jalapeno peppers, and Cornbread.
Cube the beef into bite-sized chunks. Dice the bacon. Heat a large heavy pot, fry the bacon until almost crisp. Scoop it out and set aside (so it
won't get burnt). Then fry the meat in the bacon fat until browned on all sides -- you may have to do this in batches. Scoop out the meat and
add to the bacon. Saute the onions (and garlic if you're using it) in the bacon. (Those who really get concerned can drain off some of the
fat, but it won't be true Texan at that point.) When it's soft, throw in the cumin, chile powder, and paprika and cook briefly. Return the meat,
cover with water and bring it to a boil. Taste and add salt, then cover and set it to simmer for a couple of hours. Thicken as needed with
cornmeal or stale tortillas.
Serve with sour cream or cottage cheese, diced onions and, of course, beer.
Like all good chilis this is best made a day in advance and reheated.
From: Henning Petersen
Where is the beer ? This True Texas Chili Recipe sounds very nice, but I would definitely skip the water and throw a couple of beers into the pot instead. By the way, 1 Tb. of oregano would be good as well.
But, is it legal to make Chili without beer in Texas ? If it is legal, there should be a law against it. If it is illegal, finally a law we all can understand the purpose of.

|New Mexico Chili with Lamb|
In a large, deep skillet, heat the oil and cook the lamb until browned on all sides. If the skillet is large enough, add the onion and garlic and cook 5 minutes longer, then transfer to a large pot. If the skillet is not large enough, remove the lamb to a large pot. Add additional oil to the skillet, if needed. Saute the onion and garlic 5 minutes, then add to the lamb. Add about 3 cups water. Bring the stew to a boil, reduce heat and simmer at least 1 1/2 hours. Add water if needed.
While the lamb is simmering, roast, peel and seed the green chiles.
Chop half the chiles and add to the stew. Put the other half in a blender or food processor with the tomato sauce and puree until smooth. Add the puree to the stew, along with the jalapenos or serranos, the oregano, and sage. About 10 minutes before the chili is done, add the fresh cilantro and salt. Taste and adjust seasonings.

|LAMB chile con frijole!|
Get about 1-2 tbls olive oil heating in a good size pan, and add the
chopped onions, chopped garlic cloves, and simmer this until the veggies
are transparent, clear a space in the bottom, and add the meat, stirring
to break up the pieces, when no longer pink, add the can of tomatoes,
the chicken stock and the chopped peppers....now when I started this, I
found to my disgust, that I had no green bell peppers, otherwise one of
those would have gone in as well, in big chunks if you do. Let this go
for half an hour, then add the hab powder, and one can of beans, either
the black or the red, and cook for another half hour, then add the other
can of beans, and taste for seasoning....add salt, and freshly ground
black pepper to taste, and serve with corn bread...
We used one of them, the one with the chopped
green chiles. Also served this with a cob of sweet corn! (Could I still
taste the wool, you ask???Not after half a bottle of red!) Marie said,
this is a great recipe, she likes lamb, but then she's got me! Cheers, Doug in BC

3. Add cooked turkey and remaining ingredients, bring to a seasonings to suit your taste. Serves 6.
1. Cut the pumpkin cubes the same size as the bean being used.
2. To roast pumpkin pieces, first cut pumpkin in half. Scoop out the seeds and stringy pulp. Place the halves skin side up and shave off the skin. Use a sharp chef's knife and always cut away from you. Cut the peeled pumpkin into slices, then into 1/2-inch cubes (see note 1). Place on a well-oiled cookie sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper and roast at 400 degrees for 1/2 hour or until tender, tossing occasionally.
3. If you can find them, white ("ghost") pumpkins are excellent in this recipe.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain fat. With slotted spoon, scoop the beef and onions into a 5 qt. crockpot. Add the onion chunks, diced green pepper, tomato sauce, diced or stewed tomatoes and both varieties of canned beans. Mix until well blended.
Add the spices and chili oil next, adjusting the measures to suit your taste... and tolerance. Mix well again.Turn the crockpot on 'low' and simmer for at least 4 hours. (Our chef will usually simmer his chili overnight.) During the last hour of cooking, before serving, add the optional honey and continue cooking.
Serve in bowls, or 'Cincinnati'style as a topping for spaghetti. Either way, you can also sprinkle grated cheese on top, too, as a garnish.

|Uncle Dirty Dave Drum's Prize Winning Chilli|
* I use garlic powder (or granules) because they are pretty consistent as to taste and strength. I like fresh as much as the next guy. But, it's nice to use ingredients that are the same from batch to batch.
** This used to be 2 teaspoons of ground coriander (soapweed) but I was getting "strange taste" comments on judge's sheets until I cut this ingredient waaaay back. Now I win prizes with this receipe once again.
*** Apropos of fresh ingredients - you can substitute Anaheim (aka New Mexico) chiles for the canned chiles. Processed New Mexican chiles are what is in the can anyway. The fresh chiles are fairly mild (low heat) and quite flavourful.
Use a 12" cast iron Dutch Oven. Toss 4 lb. of chilli grind round steak into the pot and start browning it. Add 1 tsp. of garlic powder per pound of meat. While meat is browning chop a large onion reasonably fine. When ground round no longer shows pink add the diced onion and 1 tsp cocoa (Hershey's or Nestle') per pound of meat. Toss in 2 tsp ground coriander. Stir in 3 Tb. of Kraft Beef Base. (note: this is pretty salty - watch it) Add about half of a 48 oz. can of V8 (straight or picante') juice and 1 tsp. of cayenne pepper. Continue to simmer and stir. When onions are clear toss in 2 Tbs chilli powder per pound of meat. (I use Chilli Man, Mexene, or Gebhardt's) and 1 tsp cumin per pound of meat. Add the Red Gold diced tomatoe with chiles or a 4 oz. can of Old El Paso or La Preferida green chiles (chop and seed if you grabbed the whole peppers by mistake). Add the diced tomato and its juices.
Continue to simmer and stir until onions are tender and completely transparent adding V8 juice as necessary. If you run out of V8 use either unsalted 'mater juice or strong coffee to add liquid. Total cooking time about 90 minutes. If you're cooking at home you can serve this batch at this point. See below for longer schedules and the "kicker".
If you're on a 3 hour schedule - most cook offs are - turn off stove and let your pot marinate for about an hour. About 30 minutes before turn-in time relight the stove and bring the chilli back to a simmer.Taste carefully and critically. This is final adjustment time. If it's too salty try adding about 1/2 tsp of brown sugar. If the chilli has died or gone flat add 1 tsp chilli powder and 1/2 tsp cumin per pound of meat and simmer right up to time to put in judging cups.
As evidence that any receipe is a living, breathing organism this one was revised and updated immediately after the Mount Auburn Volunteer Fire Department's Annual (1998) Chilli Cook-off. I didn't win (dammit)but second place isn't anything to sneeze at. It beats kissing your old maid aunt on the lips.

SALSA VERDEWHITE CHILI
Combine all salsa ingredients in medium bowl; mix well. Refrigerate 30 minutes or more to blend the flavors. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, combine water, 1 teaspoon lemon pepper and cumin seed; bring to a boil. Add chicken breasts. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 to 28 minutes or until chicken is fork tender and juices run clear. Remove chicken from bones; cut into bite size pieces. Return chicken to saucepan. Add olive oil to medium skillet and saute the onions and garlic until tender, add to chicken mixture. Add the corn, chiles, ground cumin and lime juice to the chicken mixture. Bring to a boil. Add the beans; cook until throughly heated. To serve, place a handful each of tortilla chips and cheese in a bowl; ladle hot chili over cheese. Slop some of the salsa verde on top and stir it all up.

Pour yams into pot, including liquid. Smash lightly. Add tomato puree, stir through. Add spices, stir through. Add cooked beans, stir through. Simmer for for a few minutes to mellow out.
(*) Beans: I keep a 'bean bucket' of mixed beans, usually including pea beans, black-eyed peas, pinto beans, split peas, lentils, navy beans, pinto beans; often including great northern beans, roman beans, pink beans, chili beans, barley, and others. Whenever there's room in the bucket I pour in a bag of something that seems underrepresented.
