I am looking for everyone's chili recipes, if you would like to share your secret. Mostly wanted alien chili recipes... let's face it, this is ATS
and I am sure some far away civilization has shared a chili recipe or two... If not, I weep for all alien civilizations. LOL
I know there are two trains of thought on this... thick hearty chili and thin watery chili. I, myself, prefer the thick chili. My father, however,
prefers the watery chilli.
My recipe is standard chilli with as much hot spice as I can provide. I add 8 cans of assorted bean, (crushed tomatoes, chilli beans, light red kidney
beans, dark red kidney bean, chilli spices and 3lbs of ground chuck) I also add 3-4 “Standard” Pepper Spray" chillies and a powdered smoked
chipotle that my mother obtains from the local convent's annual "season festival".
I find that if I over cook the ground chuck, let simmer for three hours while turning every 20 minutes and make it very dry, it absorbs the chilli
sauce and makes the meat plumper and more flavorful. I also took a chapter from my father's book and add mushrooms, because I love mushrooms.
My father, on the other hand, likes the watery chilli and adds, T-Bone stake cubes, spicy Italian sausage, and a large can of V-8.
Are there any ATS members that have their own recipe or cooking techniques that would be willing to share?
