Awesome, I'm going to try it

First, homemade mayo:

Stick Blender Mayo

1 each egg
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 tablespoons Splenda or Sugar
1 cup salad oil

Mix well using stick blender, standard blender or food processor.
Store overnight to allow flavors to meld.

Then, make your chili thin enough to be used as a sauce. Add mayo to it and mix well. (Mayo to taste, I like a LOT)

Put that on some angel hair pasta (Make a "bowl" in the middle of your pasta and fill it with the chili) and top with your favorite shredded cheese.

Serve with crusty garlic bread

Serious Yum!

beer is a great chili addition. Something medium in flavor. adds a great depth of taste.

On a totally different line, there is New Mexico Green Chili and Cincinnati Chili (really a Greek dish). If you decide to take a walk on the wild side (probably not this time) ask and I'll pass on my versions.

Not a beef chili, but what about a seafood chili?

:: Cooking For Dads ::

I've made it twice and I added what I thought would be good. We really liked it, alot. Add some tony chach's creole and it makes it better, imho.

It's something different, anyway.

Instead of straight ground beef, try a little Hot Italian Sausage as part of your meat compliment. A 3 to 1 mix, beef to sausage, always works nice, in spicier dishes you can even go half and half. Sausage brings a wealth of spices to your dish as the meat is seasoned and marinates in it's casing further enhancing flavors and providing depth.

I had this problem too with no depth of flavour and it's so disappointing when you have everything else well balanced, just need to go for it.

I hate to say it, but sometimes you're just using way too lean a cut (or ground) beef. Fat carries flavor. If you need to keep it lean, cut the salt out entirely and find a beef base (powder or paste) that you like and use that in place of salt.

Sometimes the depth of flavor develops with time. For instance, my Cincinnati chili absolutely has to sit in the fridge for a minimum of 24 hours after I make it, a couple of days is better. It allows the flavors to meld into unity instead of your brain immediately thinking: cinnamon. allspice. cayenne. pepper. vinegar. Etc.

I also find that when people make southwestern/Mex food they often go too heavy on the peppers, way to light on the other flavor-makers: Garlic, Onion and CUMIN!

chili, recipe

Chili recipe ideas? [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]Hi guys,[/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana] [/FONT][/COLOR] [COLOR=black][FONT=Verdana]My gf wants to make chili tonight. Do you have any ideas for recipes? I know that ingredients like peppers, onions, ground beef, garlic, beans, tomato, and some spices like paprika, cumin, salt, pepper, etc are essential, but is there anything else I can add that will make it taste even better?[/FONT][/COLOR] 3 stars 1 reviews
