Chile Lovers Spicy Three Meat Chili

A unique chili using a mixture of meats. It is spicy and loaded with flavor. The name of this recipe used to be Chili Colorado, but I challenged my new friend, Chef #383557, to make and rename the recipe for me after he pointed out that it was not a typical Chili Colorado recipe. (Please see his delightful review. I changed the measurement of the stew meat because if his review and because I also prefer more of this meat in my chili. I also like his idea for marinading the stew meat.) It was all in good fun and I am pleased with the new name. Thank you Bruce! Thank you also too all the reviewers of this recipe.

    This is hands down the best chili I've ever had and everyone in my family agrees. I had to re write the recipe though, bc as written here it will drive you bonkers trying to follow the instructions with the ingredients; ingredients are all over the place and not in order. Apparently the recipe underwent a makeover as one reviewer mentions using onion soup... This will be my new go to chili recipe as the flavor is off the charts.

    This has been our favorite, go-to chili recipe for years! We make a couple of batches in the crockpot each winter. Never had better. Thanks, Karen!!! XO

    Full of flavor and the different meats really were a hit when I made this for a gathering. Lots of options for small tweaks that work well, too.

    I made this chili for my workplace's annual Christmas chili cook-off. I had never made this chili before but the recipe looked really great so I tried it. Wouldn't you know...I won the thing. There were 16 entries and this one took the trophy. I made a few minor modifications like substituting ground venison for the ground beef and using "heaping" tablespoons of the spices rather than exact tablespoons. The chili turned out thick, robust, and nice and hot. I will definitely make this again and keep it towards the front of my recipe binder. Thank you Karen!
