    Chili Time

    Sat Feb 25, 2012 9:46 am Groupie
    Hi all.

    Does anyone have a tried and tested recipe for chili? I've searched here and am getting frustrated. Looking for "2# ground beef with tomato sauce and beans" sort of recipe. No Vegan. No chicken.

    And the cooking times I'm finding are anywhere from 6 to 12 hrs. Would like to cook this overnight. At least 8 hrs without mushing out the beans.

    This one really takes 30 minutes, but I put everything in the crockpot and served it at a chili cookoff about 6 or 7 hours later with no problems at all, in fact I won the gold medal! 30-Minute Chili

    Here are some I found that are basically just ground beef, etc
    Tex-Mex Chili (Crock Pot)
    Debbie's Crock Pot Chili
    Our Family Favourite Crock Pot Chili (Oamc)
    Crock Pot Chili Con Carne With Beans - you could just omit the bacon
    Mom's Famous K.i.s.s. Chili
    Sandi's Auction Chili
    The Ultimate Chili
    Meaty Slow Cooker Chili - use all beef instead of part pork

    Chili is more forgiving than some other recipes and I think any of these should be ok for 8 hrs.

    I don't use canned beans that often - I usually will soak dried beans overnight and cook them - how long depends on the type of bean, under an hour usually. The beans seem to hold up better and I know they taste better.

    Thanks for the help. I didn't get to the recipes in time, so I came up with my own. I started with everything except the beans on High for 2 hrs. Then put it on Low, added the beans, and 8 hrs later, my wife had it for Breakfast. 6 Qts. and it only lasted 2 days. Mabe the 8 Qt. crockpot next time.

    I think I perfected mine if you want to give it a try - I won a local chili contest with it. It has a lot of ingredients but it's totally worth it. icon_smile.gif

    If you make it and think it's missing something, let me know!

    Welcome to
    That's quite a recipe - complex flavors, I'm sure. Now I'm hungry.

    Thanks, Red!

    My boyfriend actually found the ghost pepper for me. What's good about it is it doesn't have too much of a flavor profile, but packs insane heat. I only added a teaspoon but heat seekers can add more.

    $15 for a bottle of powder and it'll last quite awhile!
