I made a breakfast version a couple weeks ago with bacon, sausage links, and cheesy scrambled eggs. I thought it was wonderful, but the eggs didnt go over with all the judges...go big or go home smile

Ha, I was thinking of adding some bacon to it, bet that would be tasty. Funny thing is that I've never been a fan of chili, my wife either, but this stuff is awesome!!! It's chili crack!!

I will be making it with venison, smoked sausage, and ground pork on thursday night smile...

jbDragon - I make mine real similar - venison cubes, venison link sausage cooked and cut up, and ground venison mixed with pork.

Same basic as yours but I go heavy with the saute'd diced peppers and onions. And beans. We like the beans so I usually use 5-6 diff kinds. dark and light kidney, garbonzo, black beans, cant think of the name but the kind baked beans are made of, and lima beans...

Two packets of McCormick chili seasoning - one hot and one regular, garlic, cans of stewed, crushed and dices tomatos. Salt, pepper, and spices. Hot sauce and crushed red till the heat is right. (note, you can always add more but you cant take heat out) grin

I make big batches as it freezes well...

Not a bad idea at all...If there was enough interest we could charge $$ for people to sample...then donate to and outdoors organization? Maybe even a requirement that the chili has some wild game of some sort?

Does anyone have a chili recipe that they DO want to share? It doesn't have to be award winning or anything. I'm just sick of the same old stuff I always make but love chili when it is good.

I've got a good "traditional" recipe that people ask for. It can be adapted for various meats.

Chili

1lb ground pork

1lb ground beef

1lb cooked, cooled and shredded steak (beef, vension, elk, etc.)

1T Lawry's Seasoned Salt

1t garlic powder (divided)

1 med white onion, diced

1 can (12oz) diced tomatoes

1 can (6oz) tomato sauce

1 can (6oz) tomato paste

1 can (16oz) black beans

1 can (16oz) kidney beans

1 can (4oz) green chilis

1t cayenne pepper

2T chili powder

1/2t cumin

1t tabasco or franks

1t salt

1t black pepper

1 can (16oz) pinto beans

2 bottles Sam Adams Octoberfest (or regular) Beer

2T cornstarch

Directions:

Brown ground beef and pork with Lawrys Salt, 1/2t garlic powder and onion. Drain fat. Add browned meat to crockpot along with remaining items except: PINTO BEANS, BEER, and CORNSTARCH.

Simmer pinto beans and 1 beer and reduce, add 2nd beer and reduce, starting to break up or lightly mash the beans. Lastly, prepare the cornstarch by mixing with small amount of water and then adding to the bean/beer mixture. Cook for 5-10 more minutes and add mixture to crockpot.

Heat for at least 2 hours before serving. It is best made the night ahead and kept in the fridge so flavors can meld overnight.

Of course offer shredded cheese and sour cream for serving.

Big Dave... try this one... less traditional but oh sooo good!

Quote:
I've been using Emeril's chili recipie. It is a beef stock based recipe as opposed to tomato based. It a lot less acidic, but still has nice 'heat' to it. I use lean venison when I make it... it adds more flavor. Everyone I've served it to loves it. Most people are used to a tomato 'heavy' chili. This is the exact opposite, so it should really stand out.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 cups chopped onions

Salt

Cayenne

2 pounds stew meat, cut into cubes

1 tablespoon chili powder

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Crushed red pepper

2 teaspoons dried oregano

2 tablespoons chopped garlic

3 cups crushed tomatoes

1/4 cup tomato paste

8 cups beef stock (I use Emeril's, it comes in a box, found in the soup section at the store)

2 tablespoons masa flour

4 tablespoons water

1 cup canned dark red kidney beans

1 bag tortilla chips

1 1/2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese

6 tablespoons sour cream

1 small jar jalapenos

In a large saucepan, heat the vegetable oil. When the oil is hot, add the onions and saute for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables start to wilt. Season with salt and cayenne. Stir in the stew meat, chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Brown the meat for 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in the garlic, tomatoes, tomato paste, and beef stock. Bring the liquid up to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer the liquid, partially covered for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally, or until the beef is tender. Skim off the fat occasionally.

Mix the masa and water together. Slowly stir in the masa slurry, add the beans, and continue to cook for 30 minutes. Reseason with salt and cayenne. Place a handful of the chips in each shallow bowl. Spoon the chili over the chips. Garnish with the grated cheese, sour cream and jalapenos.

Good Luck!

Ken

    • Where did the 7 million come from to save the jobs?  My understanding it came from tax subsidies from the state of Indiana, if that's true it would seem to me that Trump would of had nothing to say about it and he is not empowered yet to be bailing out companies. Sounds to me as if this whole thing was probably hashed out and settled a long time ago and this is just a See how I keep my promise that Carrier wasn't going to go to Mexico.
    • I suspect she had help with that article   
    • The guy at Scheels told me the new battery fits the old model augers.  I've got the original Ion as well and asked about it.  Verify, but that's what I was told. 
    • It's been a joke forever but I guess if you are a believer then you don't find it funny. I highly doubt "most people believe" but it's not like they have truly been given any options. The parties are breaking up right in front of our eyes, it is very entertaining to watch. I suspect they don't last 10 more years at this rate.
    • Sorel Pac Boot.  My search ended on those 15 years ago.  I haven't battled cold feet ever since.  No need for special fabric or battery powered socks or toe warmers.    I have to also mention, understand the body's thermal system.  Long ago, Modern Marvels did a show on it.  The short version is that you have to keep your core and vital organs warm.  Then your body will send surplus heat to your head, fingers, toes, and other regions you wish didn't sweat so much.  Big part of that is blocking the wind. 
    • Food plots are no more threat than farm fields or logged land.  If you're really concerned about food plots spreading CWD, you better get on the horn with the University of MN ag program and urge them to kill off their cover crop program and quit promoting the idea to farmers.  And bait piles, should farmers should be fined for missing the silage wagon with the chopper, or the semi with the grain auger?  Should it then be illegal to no-till farm?  Should alfalfa be banned completely from agriculture?    This whole thing is a joke predicated on shaky at best science driven by fear.  Eat that deer, it could kill you.  If you don't shoot every deer, it could kill you.  If you enjoy your hunt, you have too many deer.  It's just too convenient they found 2 positives right in the middle of the two zones they've been trying to clean out for years.  Ten tags per guy didn't do it I guess, so they decided to pull out the nuclear option.    Meanwhile, no monitoring is being done on the Wisconsin border from the twin cities to Duluth where WI has border counties with CWD.  So I ask, are they really trying to stop the spread?   MN banned the import of carcass parts from out of state months earlier.  Were they really serious about preventing infected animal parts from entering the state?  Because it sure seems like there was zero effort to police the borders or even get some messaging up along the main roads.    So, we're left to draw one of two conclusions.  They're either very poor at running a conspiracy, or they're completely unqualified to tackle this threat.  Either way, I see no reason to put any faith in what the DNR says or does.  I'm not going to shoot a doe and neither is anyone else in my party.  And I will champion that message to every person that will listen. 
    • There is no way whatsoever the queen of word salads put together and uttered that sentence.
    • Glad to hear, now any insights as to how the carrier deal is helping to save our country?
    • Nope,. Doing well.  Trump will be President and my vote helped save the country.      
    • Well, if you assume the govt is better off giving tax breaks to one company to keep 1000 jobs, then you should be able to safely assume they would also be better off to give all companies tax breaks to keep jobs here..   Why single out one company for special treatment?
