    Anyone has a good Chili recipe? I have a potluck coming up at my neighborhood and want to cook Chili. Any ideas of what quality meat should I use?

    Looking at something Mild Grade.

    Thanks

    2 cans bush's chili beans
    1 clove of garlic
    1lb of meat
    1 onion
    1 tablespoon of chili powder
    1 teaspoon of cumin


    Its a good base with good spice. Double recipe would make a good bit of chili. You can add and other stuff too if you want. Start the meat and garlic together. Then add the onions. When the onions are sauteed start adding your other stuff.

    It all depends on what region you are in.

    Traditional chili has no beans.

    Just meat spice and tomato base sauce.

    I like 1 pound 80% 20% ground beef
    1/2 pound chopped steak (stew meat)
    1 large can tomato paste (not soup)
    2 cups water
    1/4 cup diced Jalapeno (seeds removed finely chop)
    1 sweet onion finely chopped
    2-3 cloves garlic finely chopped
    1 bunch dried red peppers (bunched to simmer in cooking pot remove before serving)
    Salt to taste

    Cook the Ground beef till brown

    The every thing into a pot and let simmer for 4 hours
    you might need to add more water to thin it out.
    Remove the dried peppers before you serve.

    If you want it with beans,
    I use 3 kinds of beans to make a bean chili

    1 can Kidney Beans (do not Drain)
    1 can Pinto Beans (do not Drain)
    1 can Bush baked beans (why would you drain baked beans)
    1 large can tomato paste (not soup)
    2 cups water
    1/4 cup diced Jalapeno (seeds removed finely chop)
    1 sweet onion finely chopped
    2-3 cloves garlic finely chopped
    1 bunch dried red peppers (bunched to simmer in cooking pot remove before serving)
    Salt to taste

    The every thing into a pot and let simmer for 4 hours
    you might need to add more water to thin it out.
    Remove the dried peppers before you serve.

    You can add chili powder if you want instead of the whole dried peppers
    about 1-2 table spoons depending on your heat tolerance.

    chili with no beans is spicy spaghetti sauce! To each their own. In the south east chili is super fine ground beef and ketchup sauce. Its really gross. Like cheap ballpark chili.

    This might be late but....Here's the recipe for chili I use....sorry it might be long.....

    Turkey Chili w/black beans and sweet peppers (its good even tho its turkey trust me)

    Serves 6

    Ingredients:
    1 tbsp olive oil
    1 large red onion,chopped
    1 lb ground turkey
    4 cloves garlic,minced
    1 tsp each : dried oregano,salt
    1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
    28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
    2 tsps chopped canned chipotles in adobo sauce
    12 oz beer (I use a good red beer like Killians)
    14 oz can black beans
    1 red,1 yellow pepper chopped
    1/2 cup chopped cilantro

    Method: 1. Heat oil in large skillet. Add Onion;cook over high heat, stirring until lightly browned. Add turkey & garlic. Cook over high heat breaking up turkey with spoon until almost cooked through (3 minutes or so).

    2. Add oregano,salt&pepper cook 1 min. Add tomatoes,chipotles, and beer. Stir and cover. Turn heat to medium/low; cook, stirring occasionally for around 15 minutes. Add beans with their liquid and bell peppers. Cook, uncovered for 10 minutes. Taste for seasoning, stir in cilantro.

    It is a simple and quick recipe and I like to make it the day before. I at least double it so I can freeze some.

    That is definitely a crowd pleaser if you do make it you won't be disappointed.
