    Brothers, Fall weather is approaching and I would like to make some chili for the Lodge. My current recipe will do in Hazard, Ky. but I know it would not pass muster anywhere in Texas. So, if one or more brothers would share their recipe it would be appreciated. BTW, I am not asking anyone to give away their secret ingredient, I just want a nice chili. Thanks in advance.

    I don't know of one, ask Tom he won the first annual Chili Cookoff at 148. I think my protest never got filed because i have yet to hear a follow up on it.

    (I am really excited to try the different chili recipes)

    Secret ingredients? We only use peppers and tomatoes :D Of course you go light on the tomatoes.

    I would help you but I never follow recipes. :S I just start throwing things in the pan till I get the taste I want. Things are never the same, and you never know how good it will be.

    OK, I bought all the stuff last night and am making the chilli using your recipe Brother Blake. I was unsure about a few of the ingrediants. I'm not sure what chilli sauce is, or chilli peppers. My local store does not carry coriander. I used chilli powder and jalapeno's. It smells fantastic. I'll post again after supper.

    GREAT chilli recipe. A little to tame, but add more red pepper and it helps. Awsome for a base to add your own touch. Thanks Blake.

    The secret chili ingredient is hot chorizo.

    I hate to be a bump on a log guys, but Texas Chili does not contain any beans, tomato chunks, vegetable chunks, coffee, or chocolate. Texas Chili should consist of Chili grind beef, tomato sauce, broth, spices, and chili peppers (but never visible pieces). Here is a fantastic recipe by Susan Dean, 2008 Terlingua International Chili Championship Winner.

    Susan Dean Chili Recipe
    Step 1 - Combine 3 TB San Antonio Original Chili Power and 2 TB Mexene Chili Powder to create Susan’s chili powder blend.
    Step 2 – Brown 2 pounds of coarse-ground beef. Cover with liquid and boil for 20 minutes.
    Step 3 – Add the following and simmer for one hour

    One can 14 ½ Swanson beef broth
    1 - 8 oz can Hunt’s no-salt tomato sauce
    1 cube Knorr’s beef bullion
    1 cube Knorr’s chicken bullion
    3 TB Susan’s chili powder blend
    1 TB granulated onion
    1 TB paprika
    1 pk Sazon Goya

    Step 4 – Add the following and simmer for thirty minutes
    2 TB Susan’s chili powder blend
    1 tsp granulated garlic
    1 TB cumin

    Step 5 – Adjust heat with Louisiana “Orignal†Hot Sauce

    I made this for dinner last night after, and yup, it is still my favorite chili recipe. It makes a darn good Frito Pie (another Texas staple). Just ladle 1 cup of chili over 1 cup of Fritos, top with sharp cheddar cheese and dig in!

    Easy chili recipe....
    1 lb ground beef
    One can rotel
    Two cans ranch style beans
    One can tomato sauce

    Brown meat. Transfer into deep pot add all ingredients and bring to a simmer. Serve! (even better if done in a Dutch oven)
    Everyone we have given this recipe to loves it. Very simple and just double the recipe for about 6 people.

    Add a good portion of spicy chorizo. Makes all the difference.

    Man do I have some recipes for this section. Bachelour newly entered to the cooking world. Here's the chili I made, which I liked a bunch!

    2 teaspoons oil
    2 onions, chopped
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 lb lean ground beef
    3/4 lb beef sirloin, cubed
    1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1 can dark beer
    1 cup strong coffee
    2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
    1 can beef broth
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    3 1/2 tablespoons chili sauce
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1 tablespoon cocoa
    1 teaspoon oregano
    1 teaspoon cayenne
    1 teaspoon coriander
    1 teaspoon salt
    4 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans
    4 serrano peppers, chopped

    Now, as a not so native Texan, I can tell you, when you decide to remove the seeds from those serrano peppers, do not do it with bare hands. They will burn for hours. Cooking 101, ay? Also, it is kind of a sweet and hot chili. First chili recipe I ever tried, but I love it.
