I actually grew up in N. Idaho. My folks moved to MT about 10 years ago. They get over to Missoula regularly. There is only one grocery store in Plains!

I add unsweetened cocoa to my chili too. The basis for my chili recipe is straight from the Betty Crocker cookbook.

Just a couple of weeks ago we tried a recipe for chili with ground lamb. We were bringing to my brother's to have while watching the Bears (he has a big flat screen TV) It was from one of the Frugal Gourmet's cookbook. It called for cubed lamb, but we used ground lamb. It was OK. Different. I think I like the regular ground beef version better. I think everyone felt the same. It was nice for something different, but we all like the ground beef better.

Some good suggestions on Chilis. Thanks for that. My chili has lots of Cumin and Oregano, so bit of a Tex-Mex flavor. I also make mine on the hot, spicy side with red pepper and spicy ground chili. Yes, I will throw in a can or two of beans sometimes. I use at least 2 pounds of ground beef, medium fatty, and add some sausage or other for variety with the casing removed.

There have been many "Chili" threads. One in particular had a file of chili recipes from "Luckytrim". Make your chili anyway you wish.

All I was trying to be was friendly, share some of my chili ingredients, Craig. I am first and foremost a foodie who loves any ethnic dish or cuisine that is hot and spicy. I very much appreciate all the cooks and input on this forum. I wish you and all the cooks here a Happy, Healthy New Year. Marty.

This is the thread that I always think of when someone mentions chili:

"Authentic" Texas Chili

Man, that was just after my son was born, and shortly after I joined here.

I still like serving chili in bread bowls.
