  • well i do it the good old southern way. 8 hours in a crock pot. lightly brown some ground beef. 1-2 jars of francesco renaldi meat flavored spagetti sauce, cut up a few fresh tomatoes, add some chopped bell peppers if you want instead of jalapeños(or both), jarred jalapeños cut up with a little bit of the juice they're floating in, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, red tobasco sauce, and instead of beans i use frozen corn, stir it all up (remember you don't need the jarred jalapeños if you don't want it too spicy) and cook on low for 8 hours. delish!!!!!

  • I brown a lb of ground beef and some onions, and then throw that in the crock pot for 6 hours with some green pepper, diced tomatoes, a can of tomato soup or tomato paste, a can of brown beans, usually a can of kidney beans (but my roommate doesn't like those), some chili powder, salt, pepper, garlic, a little bit of sugar... and voila. Then usually I top it with shredded cheese and scoop up the leftovers in my bowl with buttered bread. Absolutely delish.

  • I make mine with stew meat instead of hamburger, and I like that a lot better. I brown the meat in a little oil with a chopped onion. I buy a packet of the Williams (silver packet) seasoning and add in a couple of cans of chili ready tomatoes and a small can of V8 to the browned meat and let it simmer away. I don't like beans in chili so I don't add those.

  • I usually use ground beef, but one time one of the stores near me had beef heart steaks on sale for even cheaper than ground beef. I cubed that up and seared it, then tossed that in the chili instead. Was the best chili I ever made.

    I like lots of onion, garlic and chilis in mine. I dice up seeded chili peppers and add those in addition to the chili powder.

  • 5 different kinds of beans (kidney, cannellini, black, pinto and refried), one can diced tomatoes with chiles (with liquid), one can tomato paste, one onion chopped, one green pepper chopped, one can corn (with liquid), season to taste with garlic, chili powder, cumin, cayenne

  • I make a crock pot full of beans (pintos, kidney, and some blackeye peas, add a piece of salt pork for flavor)

    I brown a pound of ground beef, dose it liberally with chili powder, pepper, some salt, cumin to taste, cut up an onion, some minced garlic, and throw a can of stewed tomatoes in. My husband likes it a bit thick, so when he gets his way we also add a little can of tomato paste.

    Once t he onions are soft, I toss all that in with the beans and let it cook for a little while so the flavors meld. While that's working in the crock pot I make home-made tortillas.

    The recipe I use for tortillas is:
    4c flour
    2/3 c shortening
    1 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    1c warm (not hot) water
    put some tinfoil on a plate and wrap up cooked tortillas to keep them warm.
    Makes lots of delicious tortillas and helps stretch that chili for a big family!
