- ground beef
- black beans
- kidney beans
- chipotle
CLC - for Chili Lovers Chili.

A musician's musician is one who makes music that people who know music love to listen to. In the same vain, Chili Lover's Chili is the chili that people who love and make chili would prefer. Or you could change the name to "Chili Chef's Chili".

The only htin is that the product has to live up to the name. Good luck. I hope you do great.

Chattanooga Chili.

I just like how it sounds. Your challenge would be why "Chattanooga." Be creative. "I only use Granny's 'maters from the old home place in Chattanooga."

I should have called it Freight Train!

Anyway, I got all the ingredients (even the secret ones;) and can't wait to get going tonight. I got 2 anaheim chiles, 2 pablanos, and a can of chipotles in adobo. Should be enough heat, although I probably won't use the whole can of chipotles.

I guess you didn't watch Kung Fu Panda, huh?

Nothing really secret to anyone here. Chipotle and chocolate would be closest though.

Here is the list as best I can remember.

3 lb ground beef
1 14.5 oz can light red kidney beans
1 14.5 oz can black beans
1 14.5 oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 can regular rotel
1 6 oz can tomato paste
2 anaheim peppers (seeded)
1 ancho peppers (seeded)
5-6 chipotle peppers w/ adobo sauce
cumin
chili powder
salt
oregano
fresh garlic
cocoa
Texas Pete
handful semisweet choc chips
hershey's chocolate sauce

I won 2nd place in the hot category. I really wasn't going for hot but I guess I overshot with the chipotles! And apparently the people that were actually aiming for hot undershot a bit. And go figure, they guy I invited 2 days before the event showed up with 2 pots and won best overall! It was a lot of fun though, and since I brought a bunch home with me I can mix in extra beans and tomatoes to tone it down a bit and enjoy some chili.

Sounds like a nice chili. Those chipotles can make on overshoot the mark lickity split. I have overshot with that one extra teaspoon trying to sneak up on it.

Congrats on 2nd place. Good show and you can train harder for next time.
