My Favorite Chili

My Favorite Chili created by NcMysteryShopper

This is the only chili recipe I've used for the last 8 years or so. I think its pretty outstanding. I vary the hot ingredients depending on who will be eating it and the mood I'm in. I've also used ground venison and it was just as good.

    Is 1/2 CUP chili powder accurate?

    I haven't made this recipe yet, but I am a chili fan and have literally over 100 chili recipes. I agree with the cutting of the beef in half. I have found I can always cut it down to half, but in order to make it even more healthy, I found I can cut this size recipe down to 1/4 (1lb) and then throw in 8 oz of diced button mushrooms. The mushrooms provide umami and earthly flavors and the texture of them makes up for some of the hamburger.

    Tried it exactly as outlined and it turned out great! Next time might increase ever so slightly the garlic and also the jalapeno.

    What goes perfect with football on a fall day? Chili of course! But when your family consists of a vegetarian, someone who doesn't eat beans and someone who can't eat spicy food, chili that everyone likes isn't exactly easy. I made this using veggie grounds, fresh diced tomatoes from the garden instead of a can of crushed. I didn't have half a cup of chili powder so I threw in what I had. The result? A chili the entire family enjoyed! I didn't think it was possible, but it was. Woo Hoo!

    This chili is GREAT! Followed the recipe except I added the whole bottle of beer (Dos XX Amber) and a little more chili powder and jalapenos (we like it spicy!). Everyone raved that this was the best chili ever!!!
