Making chili?

Hi everyone,

I've made chilli before and I know how to make it pretty well.

But I'm wondering how I can make my chilli better?

I'm also wondering if I can use 2 pounds of ground lamb with 1 chirzo tube or a half tomake it a little bit spicy?

"Better" can be subjective. Just keep experimenting until you get it the way YOU like it!

I guess I should have asked, did anyone ever try ground lamb in their chilli making process?

And if they did, how was it?

By the way thank you for your reply Selkie.

There is another thread asking this very same question. Except that poster gave their recipe so that we could be specific. You may want to check that thread for suggestions.
nope, don't like lamb, wouldn't put it in chili. Elk is good in chili.

Hadn't thought of lamb, but sounds interesting and the chorizo sounds great. DH hates lamb so I probably wouldn't try it...of course I could make it just for me, mine...all mine! :)

I didn't know there was another post about this, If I did know I would have asked in there to keep the bandwidth down.

To answer your statement, I figure if some one wants beans in there chilli by all means put them in there, for me I love beans when they're done right!

Yuppers, just a little heat goes a long ways in meats it seems.

I'm thinking about making some chilli with ground lamb and black beans but I will let the beans soak for 1-2 day's though. Tonight after grochy shopping I'm trying a ladies recipe on tomato soup though.

I make my own chorizo, although I'm too lazy to grind my own meat. Lamb and black beans sounds good, so does the tomato soup...now I'm all hungry for chili ! But, I better got to bed so I can work tonight!

This is the base recipe I'm using for my chili.

I'm substituting beef for lamb, I'm using shallots & onions for the base for my frying part.
