So, I'm making a big pot of chili for dinner. I use ground beef, pintos, kidney beans, chili beans, diced tomatoes, onion, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to make my chili and it's delicious. Once it's done we eat it with cheese and crackers in it. How do you make chili?

I make it a lot like you do but I use ground turkey and sometimes I splash in some BBQ sauce.

This sounds delicious! I'd have to forego the cilantro, though... DH doesn't like it.

Quoting mcginnisc:

Onions

Bell peppers

tomato paste

diced tomatoes

ro-tel 

cilantro

dried oregano

chili powder

fresh garlic

cinnamon

cumin

black pepper

kosher salt

My chili has the following. 

Cubed sirloin or bison

Onions I use one red and one sweet yellow

Red, green and yellow bell peppers one of each

Celery

Leeks

Jalapenos

Anahiem peppers

Hatch chili peppers

Garlic

Tomatoes I roast in the oven then dice

Pinto beans and kidney beans I use dry and make ahead of time

Cumin

Chili powder

Oregano

Vegetable stock homemade

Tomato paste homemade

Guinness beer

Brown sugar

Salt and pepper

We top with a bit of cheese and green onions.  I serve with a spinach salad and a homemade vinaigrette.

When I make chili I make two large pots and freeze most of it.  I usually freeze in freezer bags that are laid flat on a cookie sheet. Once frozen they are easy to stack and store. I do this with all of my homemade soups.  I make vegetable stock in large quantities usually two large stock pots worth. I freeze in ice cube trays and they are stored in large freezer bags.  I can drop in what I need for meals.  On nights I don't feel like cooking I have usually three or four different soups to choose from and can simply toss a salad together and still have a healthy and yummy meal.
