Default How do you Chili?

So now that I have all the huge pots for brewing, im making some chili recipe's on the side. I think I may enter my nuclear meltdown chili into the beer & chili contest my hometown holds. Anywho, does anyone make chili too? Any good recipes to pass along?

I don't have any recipes, but I've found that alcohol makes for good chili. I usually put a bit of vodka in mine, which burns the alcohol out but leaves that hot kick you get from hard alcohol.

A boss of mine made Tequila chili since he was from south Texas and it was AWESOME!!!

My SWMBO made this recipe a couple times and it's been great. The two key ingredients are a hint of cocoa powder and a good beer. She used a Guinness the first batch and my HB stout for the second batch.

1/2 cup brown sugar. That seems a bit high, but it looks good. I'd dump the lean ground beef and use plain old roast. I've made this and it's very good as well:

Up the chipolte and jalapeno to your own taste.

I always put a bottle of Guinness in mine, I also put in a small amount of ground pork along with the beef. The fat is slightly different in pork and keeps the chili a little more solid and substantial.

Not a bad idea. I may try that, but I'll use unground pork.

I always put beer and cocoa powder in mine. Sounds strange but it's yummy!

I made some chili last night, I put in 4 lbs of sausage and ground beef. Needless to say, there are leftovers. Delicious!

Usually the standard ground beef/venison for the meat browned with some chopped fresh garlic and cilantro.

White chilis (seed in) for the heat, red and green sweet peppers, fresh tomatoes, some white onion, a decent mix of pinto and black beans, ground cumin and chili powder. Sometimes Ill put a bit of whatever white wine Ive got laying around in if its too thick.

Its pretty standard but I let it simmer in the crock pot on low overnight and its good to go.

Three tips:

1. Dont just use ground beef. You can get so much more flavor and texture if you use 50% beef and 50% something else. I like pork. Although I have used ground turkey too and people LOVED it.

2. Make your own chili powder. It is easy to do and you can do it with ingredients at your local store. Look it up on the internet, it is easy.

3. Use a nice dark beer for a good chunk of the liquid.
