  • just put it all together. fry up the hamburger meat first and dice the onions and fry up as well. put everything else together in a pot and add the hamburger and onion. i don't know how thick it is going to be as you are probably going to need to add some water. I usually use crushed tomato and paste. Add the chili powder to taste. Start with a teaspoon at a time. I don't like spicy chili.

  • like how much chili powder and what other spices? is what my question should be

    Answer by twinsnseptember at 5:06 PM on Jan. 7, 2010

  • I prefer to use Kidney Beans but I've heard of ppl using Pinto's..... all you have to do is brown your meat in a pan until done, I normally mix up my onion, peppers, diced tomato's and what not with my beans and chilli powder to taste and/or consistency...let these cook in the pot you plan to use adding your cayenne or tabasco or what not if you choose also brown sugar is a great and must have addition in southern chilli... I also add a lil garlic powder or a clove or 2 of garlic and once my meat is done I add it in to the chilli mix and all ready to go..... let it cook from there... you said you have a lot of spices so I think you will do fine... most ppl who can cook have a lot of spices! ;~D
    GO COWBOYS!!!!!
    Hope this helps you out... I'm not great on giving instructions.

  • chili powder is a combination of different spices, so but a tsp at a time in and taste. add anything else you want...oregano, basil? etc..

  • This is the recipe that I use. You can adapt it for meat, if you need to. Best Chili Ever – you can use any bean; 1 can = 1/5 cups home cooked
    2 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    4 cups vegetable broth
    1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (15-ounce) can white (cannellini) beans, rinsed and drained
    1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
    1 cup frozen baby lima beans or regular lima beans or corn
    1 cup chopped onion
    1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1 can tomato paste
    2 tablespoons chili powder, or more to taste
    2 tablespoons dried Mexican oregano or regular oregano (or more to taste)
    2 teaspoons ground cumin (or more to taste)
    1 teaspoon ground coriander (or more to taste)
    1 to 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    1-2 Tbl masa, mixed with cold water
    1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
    1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

  • Salt to taste (I add this last)
    If you don’t have a slowcooker, this can simmer on the stove; stir and add liquid as needed. In a slow cooker, combine all ingredients but the masa, shredded cheese, cilantro and salt. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 to 8 hours or on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Five to 10 minutes before serving (depending on temperature of slow cooker) add masa and water mixture, cover and cook for about 15 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and other spices.
    Just before serving, top each serving with shredded cheese and cilantro
