  • Add bacon first and then cook the onions, mushrooms and garlic in the bacon grease. Also, here's trick and no one will know what that yummy extra is...SPAM...cut it up into little square if it were ham and also cook it in the grease then do all the rest as usual.

  • I have one recipe where I use sausage instead of ground beef . It also has dark beer in to give it a different kick. Just message me if you would like the recipe.

  • This isn't really chili, but it's DH's grandma's recipe, and our kids LOVE it and devour it - we're talking 3-4 bowls each. I don't have measurements really, because we've never been given any, we just add as much of each item as we want to.
    hamburger, cooked - I normally use 2 lbs
    tomato soup - I normally use 2-3 cans, PLUS an equal amount of water!
    pork & beans - I usually use 2 family size cans (36 oz? not sure, but I buy the cheapest brand)
    chili powder to taste
    cooked macaroni noodles - I usually use about 1 lb
    It's very mild, good when we want something different (I usually only make it once a year).

  • DH's recipe. Cook 1 lb sausage (italian, hot, whatever - we buy homemade sausage in bulk from a nearby place) and 1 lb hamburger in the same pan, with some black pepper & chili powder. Drain and throw in crock pot. Add 1 jar salsa, any heat, any amount. Add as may chili beans as you want, use a little water to get the extra sauce from the can, add just enough water so the liquid level is at the top of the solid level, add more pepper & chili powder. Put on low and let cook 12 hours. He'd make it at night, put it in a thermos the next morning, and take it hunting with him. Our kids aren't as fond of this one!

  • I just found a recipe for white chicken chilli which is AWESOME! Have you made white chili before?

  • I use hot pork sausage and lots of peppers. You can't really put any peppers in that make it taste bad. Don't be afraid to experiment.
