A line has to be drawn somewhere.

Oddly enough I am snobbish as hell but have been having intense cravings for ground meat and kidney bean chili for weeks now and I think this weekend is the time to break down and make it. I will still refuse the sacrilege that is tomatoes and use the last of the chili powder I made but other then that I am going to take a picture of the back of a spice packet and go from there.

I mean, if you just go beyond spice packets, that step alone makes ground beef and bean chili really palatable and awesome in its own way.

Hot dog chili should really never have beans in it.

I think what I am craving is Spicy Sloppy Joes with Beans and cumin. I also want to eat it with runny eggs and maybe some fried potatoes. I feel the need for hangover food but without the hangover.

I don't have a problem with beans, and if they're southwesterny type beans all the better, but don't tomatoes overpower the awesome flavors of chili? Some of you guys are adding huge jugs of tomato sauce and whole tomatoes. I advise backing off of that for one batch, and see if you like it better without that sweet tomato taste.

All of these recipes look great, though judging on the way people are commenting, it almost feels as if the ideal chili is actually curry. Curry is also delicious, though, don't get me wrong. I'll always have to have beans in my chili though, the texture is almost as important as the taste for me.

Curry is just a dish with a blend of spices. There are many curries. Chili is a subset of curry. Curry is not necessarily chili. There are curries with legumes. There are curries without.

The "ideal" curry is comprised of meat chunks braised in ground up dried chilies with some other spices such as cumin, pepper, bay. Chili is not a tomato based meat dish. It is a chile based meat dish. Hence the name, "chili".

Chili is short for chili con carne. Chilies with meat. The "ideal" chili is just that. Chili sauce. Meat.

MY TREEEEEEEE!

I made some chili based on this thread last night. It was wonderful! I didn't have stock on hand, so I subbed in two bottles (minus a few oz for the doctor) of Modela Negra, since it was the most appropriate beer they had at my grocery store. I don't think I'll ever be interested in normal ground beef + tomato sauce + spice packet chili again.

I made chili last week and went whole-hog. I bought dried chilies, stemmed and seeded, toasted them, ground them, made them into chili powder. Then I made chili without a smidge of tomato in the whole dish, anywhere. No ground meat, no beans. I was a little skeptical until, around hour three, the beef fell apart and turned the whole thing into shredded meat suspended in delicious, delicious sauce.

Thanks, thread. That was worth it. There's room for improvement, but that's not a bad thing.

Nah... it's because I used stew meat for the first time in a chili, and the bayleaf idea came from this thread, and then my brain said: stew meat and bayleaf... That means your dish needs a tiny bit of acid, hence the balsamic vinegar. And then I remembered I was making chili and that i was being weird, hmmm.
All I can say is that there were only really small amounts of the vinegar and sweeteners in there, and it didnt ruin the dish.
Oh well...

its with a full house


So last night I made some chilli. Given that I live in the UK and ingredients are kind of scarce since mexican stuff isn't that popular over here, I made do with the best I could:

Dried ancho, chipotle and gaujillo (I have a place nearby that sells these, luckily enough)
Jalapenos
Red onion (didn't have anything else)
Oxtail
Sausage meat
Tequila

Made a powder out of some of the crushed chiles. Used this as the base for the sauce. Browned off the meat, then deglazed it with the veggies and some of the tequila. Once the tequila was mostly evaporated, added the meat back and covered it all up with some good beef stock. Added some bay leaves, a few of the dried chiles to rehydrate in the stock, then basically simmered it until the oxtail was literally falling off the bone.

Didn't look the prettiest but drat it tasted good. Did I do good, chili masters?

Indeed I am. Those are cheaper but pretty much all beef is terribly expensive unless I can score some American MAD COW HOLY poo poo!!! beef for nothing. The concept of a pulled pork chili is deeply intriguing to me, I will try with some shoulder. Pork isn't exactly cheap either but compared to beef, no contest.

Pork will make fine chili. You may want to skim a little fat off the top if you get a noticeable amount of grease floating on top. Leave some, because pork fat is delicious.

Go with pork. Add some Colorado/New Mexico chiles, maybe some chipotle, oregano, some fresh squeezed lime at the end serve with fresh tortillas and some toppings (radish, red onion, cilantro, whatever) and you have Carne con Chile, the great grandfather of the classic Texas Red in this thread.

What kind of flavor profile do those chiles have? I'd have to hunt down a substitute. I have a giant bag of dried generic hot red peppers at the moment.
