    The circle I live in is having our annual tailgate/block party in a few weeks to kick off the football season and a new year of school for our kids.

    Every year they have a cooking contest. This year Chili has been chosen.

    I need the BEST chili recipe out there. Doesn;t have to be the hottest just the best tasting.

    I am not a bean person at all and i always felt the best chilies had no beans but then again, i am not really a chili person either. Mostly due to the fact most have beans.

    Looking for some help because we got this one guy who thinks he is Emeral, Bobby Flay and Jack Tripper all rolled into one. Got all the tools, and talkes up a big game but I want to smoke this Turkey this year. Beans or no beans I don;t care but I want to beat this guy. I prefer no beans but to be the best I'll add the beans.

    Need some help!!!!!!

    Thanks all!!

    Al, the best needs a special blend of spices. I have the recipe and the spices, and would be happy to help. Just ask Tron, He tried it a couple years ago.

    How much time do you have and what state are you in?

    Here is a simple one for you to try.

    One large white onion Chopped fine

    One Bell pepper chopped

    one and a half lb. of lean ground chuck roast (I like ground bison or deer)

    half clove garlic (Roasted)and chopped fine

    Three jalapeno peppers roasted skinned cleaned and chopped fine

    Three cans of tomato sauce

    two large cans of whole tomatos Juice and all. I prefer ten roasted whole fresh tomatos with juice skinned and chopped very coarse

    two cans of regular tomato soup (Cambells)

    two table spoons of sugar to taste to break the tartness of the chili and other peppers

    Two table spoons of chili powder to taste

    one teaspoon of cayanne powder to taste

    one table spoon fresh ground black pepper

    one teaspoon of white pepper

    one table spoon of salt (sea salt) to taste

    two cans of pinto beans but not necessary

    Brown desired meat with onion, bell pepper, garlic, black and white pepper, jalapeno, and salt.

    after browning, add all the ingredients in large pot and simmer for about 3 hours.

    serve in a bowl with fine shredded cheese of choice to top if desired and some saltine crackers.

    This one is not that hot because you should spice to taste. I like it to set the house on fire and punish me the next day. This was my grandmothers chili and you can change it any way you want to. The tomato soup is the most important ingredient.

    (A really fine chili, cooked the way Texans like it. Serve with beans, if you like, but never add them to the chili).

    4 tbls vegetable oil

    3 lbs beef chuck round, cut in ¼ to ½ inch cubes

    2 large onions, chopped (2 cups)

    2 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed

    2 cans chopped green chili peppers

    2 to 6 tbls chili powder

    2 tbls flour

    3 tsp cumin

    2 tsp oregano, crumbled

    2 tsp salt

    1/8 to ¼ tsp cayenne pepper

    1 can beef broth

    1 ½ cups water

    1 to 2 tbls cornmeal

    1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a heavy Dutch oven or stock pot; add meat to brown lightly, 1/3 at a time; remove as it browns. Add onions, chili peppers and garlic to pan, adding more oil as needed; saute’ until tender and lightly browned, 10 minutes. Return all meat to pan.

    2. Combine chili powder, flour and cumin; sprinkle mixture over meat; stir with spoon over low heat until meat is evenly coated, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in oregano, salt, cayenne, beef broth and water. Bring to boiling, stirring often. Lower heat; simmer slowly, covered, 1 ½ to 2 hrs or until meat is very tender.

    3. Sprinkle in the cornmeal, stirring constantly; cook until slightly thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve with freshly cooked hot rice and cooked pinto beans.

    Makes 8 servings

    I use Venison instead of beef

    This is different but very good.

    White Chili

    1 lb. bag of white beans, 6 cups chicken broth, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 medium onions chopped, 1 Tabsp. oil, 2-4oz. cans of chopped green chilies, 2teasp. ground cumin, 1 1/2 teasp. dried oregano, 1/4 teasp. ground cloves, 1/4 teasp. chili pd., 4 cups diced chicken breast, Combine beans and broth and bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 3 hours. Brown garlic and onion in oil and add to beans, add chilies, seasonings and mix well, add chicken and cook at least 1 hour. Serve with corn chips, grated pepper jack cheese and chopped green onions. Sometimes I place a spoonful of sour cream on top also.

    If you are short on time use 2 large cans of white beans, and canned chicken and just simmer the whole soup for about 1 hour to blend flavor.

    If anybody knows how Steak & Shake makes theirs, I'd pay for that recipe. On the other hand, if anyone knows Skyline's, I'd pay to not make theirs by mistake. ;-)
