    I like this one, just leave the beans out if you do not want them.

    I saw you put Bloody Mary mix in your chili.

    How big a recipe are you looking to make? I've got one (an actual recipe) that my friends have all liked that was given to me on another forum. The guy who gave it to me has won actual contests with it, but from what I remember its pretty big. It's similar to the one I make, but scaled up and I usually cook my onions and garlic along with the meat when I'm browning it.

    6 lbs beef chili grind (chuck)
    2 lbs ground pork
    3 8oz cans tomato sauce
    2 large onions, chopped
    2 cloves garlic, crushed & chopped
    2 Jalepeno peppers
    5 tbsp chili powder
    2 tsp cumin, ground
    1/4 - 1/2 tsp oregano
    salt to taste
    1-2 tsp paprika
    cayenee pepper to taste
    masa harina (as needed)
    1 quart beef stock
    crushed red pepper to taste

    Brown meat in a cast iron skillet (about 2-3 lbs at a time) until grey in color, drain grease. Place in chili pot, adding tomato sauce and equal amounts of water. Add chopped onion, garlic, jalepeno peppers (diced), and chili powder. Simmer 20 minutes, then add cumin, oregano, salt, crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper to taste. As moisture is required, add beef stock until amount is used, then add water if needed. Simmer covered until meat is tender (about 2 hours), stirring occasionally. Adding a couple of teaspoons of masa in the end will thicken the mixture if needed (a little bit goes a long way, so start off slow). Add paprika for color. Cook 10 additional minutes, correct seasoning to taste. *HINT* A small amount of cumin enhances aroma when added in the last 10 minutes. Serve!

    I like this recipe:


    Someone mentioned that they entered a competition and took second place, but lost to another person cooking on an egg.  Here is that post:

    Note: The recipes vary slightly.  The first link is what I believe is the latest version floating around. 



    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • Mine recipe is similar to Griffins, but I add a shot of espresso and a half can of good beer.

    We went to a chili cook-off a week ago.  There were about 20 entrants, a lot of typical chili's.  The winner actually won with an "alternative" chili.  He did a smoked ham and black bean "chili" (soup, some would call it).  It had the consistency of chili, but not the typical chili beans and meat.  

    I admit, I voted for it.  It was very tasty, and the smoked ham was wonderful.
