planing on making chili
« on: March 14, 2013, 11:01:45 pm »
i was wondering what other people toss in there chilli. think about making some tomorrow. currently got kidney beans, black beans, diced tomato's, corn, onion, ground beef and hot Italian sausages. still got to pick up some veggies but i figure since i am planning this ahead of time i could possibly get some idea's of what would make the chili better. sometimes i will toss in some steak or bacon if i can find some decent stuff on sale.

    YUM ... chili

    I use diced polska kielbasa sausage and diced beef stew meat.  I like to use garlic flavored crushed stewed tomatoes.  For beans, the kids and I really like ranch style beans.  Usually add a little rice for filler.  Lots of water to make it juicy.  Season it with diced bell pepper, diced or crushed onion, salt, pepper, and chili powder.  Of course chili isn't chili without sweet cornbread and american cheese on top.

    that sounds good. never heard of using rice in chili. might have to try it. did you just throw the rice in dry and let the chili cook it or do you cook it first then toss it in?

    I let it cook in the chili.  I like to let the flavors get into the meat and get a slow boil going about 20-30 minutes.  We usually make a big pot and it gets eaten up by the 2nd day.

    cool. i also make a big pot of chili and it usually take me about 3-5days to eat all by myself. if my sister is around or i share with her it disappears quicker.

    Don't forget CHEESE, when ready to serve!  ;D

    Cheddar is always in-season, but pepperjack can give it an extra kick, too.  ;)

    Get a big jar of Pace picante sauce and throw it in for an extra kick. I use a yellow top but whatever heat level you want will do.

    Small red beans, lots of green chili peppers, if like it thin, hot and spicy v-8 instead of water.  For myself, I usually just open can of Nalleys Hot and add onions..

    Totally agree on the cheese  {drool} Personally, I never did the salsa.  Instead, I use some Hatch or Rotel diced tomatoes with green chile in it, I also dice up a couple of roasted hatch green chiles (my dad lives in NM and brings me a couple of lbs every year)  Not sure how hot you like it, but I use "ghost chile" (bhut jolokia) for not just heat, but a really nice smoky flavor.  I also recently started using red kidney beans.  For meat, I use ground sirloin cooked with about 4 or 5 slices of bacon...mmmm, bacon  ;D  Also, keep in mind that if you use the ghost chile, it has been proven the hottest pepper in the world (10x hotter than the Habanero) but it adds lots of flavor, too.

    I make a heart chili (most people say it's Texas style, but I don't know about that.) Cubed beef (or venison)... best of sat in beer for a day particularly if venison, stewed tomatoes, black beans, load of fresh garlic, some red peppers. Use sour cream and shredded cheese to top it after you get a bowl. Dee-licious.

    I love chili, but it comes back to haunt me, in the form of brutal heartburn.

    Anybody have some suggestions on making a good chili that won't set my chest on fire? Aside from chewing up a bunch of tums, or adding a bottle of tums to the chili  :P

    Sounds like you'd really be after an all meat Chili, just add beans without much spice. Don't put in any peppers, whole or ground. Same for tomatoes. I'd advise adding cheese.

    lol. thanks guys. i swear almost every time i checked on here i had to make another trip to the kitchen to check to see what i got and what i might have to try next time. currently the pot is pretty full. if this pot of chili is not spicy i must be doing something wrong. put in 1 jar of hot salsa along, 2 hot peppers and 5 hot Italian sausages along with all the other stuff.

    Make chilli in my slow cooker, mostly usual chilli ingredients, but exchange water for extra spicy Clamatoe juice, add fried bacon, pickled jalepeno, usually over use garlic salt, and Blair's mega death sauce. First time use of Blair's sauce led to over use, my lips still burn when I think about it. Best thing about chilli is there is so many different options, even if you cross the line  you really cant mess up chilli
