That chili cook-off went pretty well....check here for the recipe I used...I discussed it on another thread. Since I won, I'll be representing my company in the Tri-County cook-off now in another few weeks.

IMO chili should have a minimum of tomatoes. Puree a bunch of toasted ancho chiles; use beer instead of water; add some unsweetened chocolate for a richer, deeper flavor.
