Award Winning Texas Chili

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by srooc1

This is some of the best chili in the world! I developed this chili recipe while cooking on the CASI chili circuit and won numerous awards with it! If you can not find the Sazon Goya just omit it. I do not add any "Floaters" (Beans, Onions, Peppers,...) but you may if you would like to. The recipe is cooked by using dumps...this is important not to overpower one spice over the other. I usually premix each dump during preparation and put in bowls or plastic storage bags and label accordingly. Enjoy!

I am glad I read MelroseChick's review before attempting this recipe. I agree, the amount of Sazon Goya was a bit confusing in the description. Just 1 packet seemed to do the trick.<br/><br/>As I can not find a light chili powder, or Gebhardt's chili powder in my supermarkets, I substituted "Mexene Chili Powder" for the places where it called for it. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly as described and received a lot of compliments at my workplace competition, even taking 1st among 6 other chilis. The depth of flavor is amazing...and if you want a little less heat, try using ancho pepper (dried poblano) in place of cayene...or just omit the cayene altogether as the flavor and spice is still outstanding.<br/><br/>After making this the first time, I go back to it everytime I have a chili craving. You can't go wrong here. Thank you srooc1!
