Your Favorite Chili

I just got my 7 quart dutch oven yesterday so now I am thinking of things to make. The first thing I was to do is chili. I have had a craving for it and have just been waiting for this pot to arrive. What is your favorite chili recipe?

I don't have a detailed recipe to give you, but I like to add at least one can of black beans to mine. Also more cumin than you might think was necessary.

my secret is to not use ground meats , like beef and lamb, but buy small cheap steaks and slices of leg o' lamb and cut them into small, fairly even sized cubes.
also, if chilli doesn't set your mouth on fire at least a little bit, it's just a sloppy joe. doesn't even rank with loose meat sammiches.
te rest of my recipe is standard, browned onions and a ton o' garlic, several types of hot peppers diced, habichuelas roasdas y blanca y negro (spanish red, white and black beans), chilli powder, crushed red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.

I am so glad you said this as this is what I want to try. All the chili I have ever made has been ground beef and then a chili kit from the supermarket. This time I want to do it right and use actual chunks of meat as well as not using a kit

LOL, bucky

I've been doing a chicken-based chili for some time now, using cream, butter, white pepper, poblanos and bell peppers, chicken stock and kidney beans. Add about 2 drops of habanero extract to a large pot, and add potatoes to soak up the "hot" of you like. Works really well.

If wasabi were here she would make you sacrifice to Pele as well. Better pop another one.
