Goons are trash and a putrid forum culture is the reason why nobody new registers. At best you're 30+ year old failed twitter "comedians" and tolerate this pig because he has the same normie sports hobby as you do.

Raisins don't belong in actual food. Just cereal and fruit cake.

I placed first in my category (traditional no beans) yet lost overall to someone else from the same category. My coworkers voting make no sense!

No one actually knows what makes good chili. Anywhere. Not even this thread. For example, one of my coworkers only ever seems to cook with habanero peppers as a base. It's those or spicier and nothing milder. I can respect that, but, come on. Anyway, a couple months ago, they brought in some of their left over chili. I didn't get to try it, but all the other coworkers who did had uh... stomach issues with it. So I went and made some Iron Leg(I guess it's now theysayheygreg?) chili, dolled it up a bit more with some 80% dark chocolate, a really light, malty, local octoberfest beer, and just subbed the whole tomatoes for an equal amount of diced fire roasted tomatoes with garlic, and added a bit of fish sauce for umami. The coworkers tasted it, and I think they were more perplexed than anything else by it. They didn't hate it, but I think they didn't know chili could have things like depth of flavor and texture. The guy who loves habaneros wa blown away that chili didn't have to be hell-scorching hot to taste good. My supervisor, who had *judged* chili cook offs previously, didn't know what to make of it. I'm not bragging here, it was legitimately a bit concerning that so many people were just thrown for a loop over this chili.

Nobody knows what the hell.

TRULY scientastic.


Itís almost like if you want to win a chili competition at work you should cater to the tastes of the judges instead of trying to persuade them that your chili is the best because itís so much more right than anyone elseís.

I get it, we all like to show off our cooking skills and sophisticated tastes, but you have to pitch to your audience if you want to win.

I won twice in row in the preceding years with the same recipe. My confusion was that I won my category, the judges (coworkers) voted my chili the best no bean chili, but then gave the best overall to someone else in the same category. Logically, my competitor should have won my category too. I wasn't lamenting on their tastes, they have been spot on the last 2 years (when I won them). The plaque posted on the last page was me.

I just heard from my boss that he overheard 2 coworkers asking which one was mine so that they wouldn't vote for it because they wanted to give someone else a 'turn at winning'.

This is faulty logic. Theirs might not have been as good at being a traditional Texas style chili, thus didn't win your category, but it may have been more pleasing overall to the judges' tastes, thus winning the overall.

Are you sure you didn't overdo the chocolate? If you put too much in, it starts tasting less like chili and more like mole which would elicit a very confused response for someone expecting to eat chili.

Nah, I threw 4 squares of a bar of lindt's that I had in the freezer into something like 4 or 5 quarts of chili. All told, I'd say it was maybe a tablespoon and a half of chocolate? Just enough to get a very slight bittersweet note in the background at the very end.

What I love about chili is that itís better after a day or 2 in the fridge, so you can make a big pot the night before a party. Great food with zero effort on party day

Any suggestions for a chili that is way spicier than I was planning? Its been cooking for 2 hours and I did a taste test to check on the flavor and it was way spicier than I expected, I guess those dried chili arbols had more kick in them than I remembered


I added some molasses, but I was wondering what other suggestions people have for it

I used arbols too and thought it was gonna be hella spicy at that point but after cooking 4+ hours and then leaving it in the fridge overnight the spice really mellowed out to just a slight kick

used way less OJ and raisins than it called for. gravy was fantastic. was a bit greasy, would use a pork loin next time vice a butt.

make this if you want to change it up from chili con carne and or want tacos

I added some more molasses and some pureed tomatoes and that seems to have gotten everything back to the preferred flavor profile. I pureed the initial batch of peppers (fresh serranos and poblanos, rehydrated chipotles and arbols) I put in there, so I can't really swap out the liquid.
