Your Favorite Chili Recipe

Its about to start getting colder and my wife was just saying how excited she was for chili season. I have a few I use but I am thinking about branching out and trying some new recipes. 

So what's your favorite? Any recipes y'all want to share?

  • White bean and turkey for me. Think I posted the recipe (as much as I ever follow them). I'll look for it. Great to do a bunch around Thanksgiving when turkeys are cheap.

    @Mickey first told me about Cindy Reed, and even sent me a packet of CinChili seasoning. Then, @Hotch sent me a link to Cindy's original recipe. I haven't made it any other way since! Takes a while, but SOOOO good!!

    Don't tell anyone, but it's even good if you add tomatoes! Or beans. (Yes, Mickey, I like it both ways. But with beans, it lasts longer! =))

    LOL - finally something we agree about! CinChili has been my go to secret ingredient for years! What else I add to my pot is of our liking - not what someone else tells me I may or not put in mine. Though I do have two more secret flavor enhancing ingredients and they are 10 oz of HOT V-8 plus .5 cup bacon grease.

    Wrong. The scratch recipe is far, far better than the pre-mix. The pouch is much easier, bit the full recipe is much better.

    Looks great. I'm a fan of beans in chili anyways. A cheaper way to make gameday food stretch out and it sticks with you.

    Thanks for posting this. I will try it staying true to the recipe. Normally I make chili with whatever I have on hand. No measuring. Just me cooking by sight, feel and taste(and limited by what is in my fridge/pantry). Beans and veggies are optional for my tastes. Sometimes I use them and other times I don't.

    I started adding a can of bean dip to the chili near the end.  Doesn't change the flavor that much, but thickens the juice a little to make it a little more like a gravy.  Last competition I was in and we added bean dip, we got second overall, but won people's choice award hands down.  Other than the bean dip, it was just a basic chili recipe.  Also, cube the meat, don't grind it.

  • I have used this one for chili cook off's in the past. It is an absolute winner. I add a pound of jalepeno bacon. Fry it up, put it in a magic bullet to almost turn it into a paste, and add it to the wet ingredients so it blends in. Outstanding. 

    Winning Recipe
      
     C.V. Wood's World's Championship Chili 

    Ingredients:
    1 3-pound stewing chicken, cut into pieces 
    1 � quarts water 
    OR 10-ounce cans chicken broth s
    � pound beef suet 
    OR � cup Wesson oil 
    4 lbs flank steak 
    5 lbs thin, center-cut pork shops 
    6 long green chilies, peeled 
    2 TSP sugar 
    3 TSP ground oregano 
    3 TSP ground cumin 
    � TSP MSG (optional) 
    3 TSP pepper 
    4 TSP salt 
    5 TBS Gebhardt chili powder 
    1 TSP cilantro, also known as chinese parsley 
    1 TSP thyme 
    8 ounces Budweiser beer 
    4 15-ounce cans Hunts Tomatoes 
    � cup celery, finely chopped 
    2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 
    3 medium onions, cut into � inch pieces 
    2 green peppers, cut into 3/8 inch pieces 
    1 pound Jack cheese, grated 
    1 lime -- Dash of Tabasco sauce
    Instructions:
    Combine chicken with water in a large pot and simmer 2 hours. Strain off broth and reserve chicken for other use, or use canned chicken broth. Render suet to make 6-8 TBS oil or use cooking oil. Trim all fat and bones from pork and cut it into � inch cubes.

    Trim all fat from flank steak and cut it into 3/8 inch cubes. Boil chilies 15 minutes or until tender. Remove seeds and cut the chilies into � inch squares. Mix sugar, oregano, cumin, MSG, pepper, salt, chili powder, cilantro and thyme with beer until all lumps are dissolved. Add the tomatoes, celery, chilies, beer mixture and garlic to the chicken broth.

    Pour about a third of the reserved suet or oil into a skillet, add pork and brown. Do only half total amount at a time.

    Add the pork to the broth mixture, cook slowly 30 minutes.

    Brown beef in the remaining oil, about one third of the total amount at a time. Add the beef to the pork mixture and cook slowly about 1 hour. Add onions and peppers. Simmer 2-3 hours until meat is broken down, stirring with a wooden spoon every 15-20 minutes

    Cool 1 hour and refrigerate 24 hours. Reheat chili before serving it. About 5 minutes before serving time, add grated cheese. Just before serving, add the juice of the lime and stir the mixture with a wooden spoon. Makes 6 quarts.

  • My wife loves Panera's turkey chili so I found this knockoff recipe and made it on the egg.  Damn close to the real thing and it was nice and light.  Made good lunches for the week.  I used ground turkey despite what the recipe said.

    @Killit_and_Grillit It worked perfect with the heat. Really compliments one another. Awesome with chili

    1 large can of tomato juice, 2 can crushed tomatoes, 1 can of bush's chili beans. 1 whole sautéed onion, 1 pack of McCormicks Chili mix, 1 pond ground beef or leftover brisket. As good as any chili I've ever eaten with the least amount of effort.
