Chili w/ Habaneros?

edited 5:10AM in EggHead Forum
All, [p]Got some Habaneros. Anyone have a good Chili recipe, or something else to use them in? Maybe something too cook on the Egg? I have a dutch oven for the purpose, but haven't really tried to do a chili cook on the egg yet.[p]Thanks!


  • Jamesw,[p]I haven't been making my chili very spicey lately, as I've found it better to let the individual adjust the heat to their liking (kids in the house!).[p]However, I does love my habaneros! I smoked a batch of them last month, and have been using them in all kinds of things.[p]Sorry I don't have any If you get a hankering to try smoking em, just keep you temp as low as you can, typically 200 or less, and prepare to wait a while. I did mine whole, but if you have gloves, you could stem and cut them if you like. Some people remove the seeds and ribs, but I like the heat myself. The ribs are where the glands that produce capsaicin (pure heat!) so I like to leave them intact.[p]When it comes time to use these little fire bombs, i just toss one in my morter and grind with the pestle (or is that the other way around?) until its a fine powder, and chuck it in my food. [p]Yum. Ouch. Grin.[p]Sorry, I don't have any secret chili recipes lately, but I thought I'd share the smoking habs idea with y'all.[p]Have fun!

    Do you use any smoking chips? I assume it's indirect? I tried jalapenos without much luck.

  • Wardster,[p]Yup, I used a lot of wood chips. I definately wanted to get some smoke in there. I think I used apple, if I recall correctly.[p]This is an indirect procedure, as this process is more of a drying one than a than a cooking one.[p](Wow, looking at my last post there I can really see the effects of using my laptop's keyboard! Sorry all, I'm not quite as *stoopid* as I type... :) )
