Used a lot of Moviedads ideas for chili yesterday. I think the sausage was the key. I used hot Italian sausage (1lb.) to 2 pounds of beef. 2 cans of red kidney beans and no onion. The wife would not budge on that one. It does have a better kick to it for sure. I found the sausage in ground up form at the market so I did not have to peel the sausage links too. Have enough left over for a couple of lunches. Thanks!

Sounds good, I'll have to try the chorizo next time.

Try adding a can of refried beans towards the end of cooking, gives it an awesome texture.

Actually that seems about right from a bean standpoint... when I make it, it's usually 2 cans to each lb of meat, so that's about right. So, that with some cornbread sounds great.

That is a good idea my friend. I didn't give you enough credit. I think that would be great. That yummy smokey flavour. I'm going to cook my chili today.

I use ground turkey, green pep, kidney, pinto, black and garbanzo beans and so other stuff. It's always good. I don't think my kids would touch it if I made it really hot like this other one. I wouldn't mind a bit of kick though. I can season mine to taste I suppose. After lunch I will go shopping.

Anyways, good idea CF. Thanks. I'll surely hold onto some of mine for that. I have a butt in the freezer right now as well as a turkey. One of them needs to be eaten. Hmmm....

Did you forget to add tomato to that chili recipe? For mine I add 2 cans of diced tomatoes and perhaps a tin of paste. That is pretty beany. LOL. Oh and those are large cans! The sausage sounds good as well.

Anyways....making chili as I type. Put on some French bread in the bread machine an hour or so ago. Should be ready right at dinner time. Cut up some strawberries to make shortcakes later. Oh mama. Can't wait.

Default Chili recipe - I'll post it later

For my recipe I cook it on a very low heat for 3 hrs. The beans get so soft and their flavors get blended with everthing else that it's hard to tell the beans are there (until the next day, lol) It takes 12 herbs and spices, chopped green peppers, chopped onions, garlic...it's a long recipe, long prep time but worth it. I use ground beef. I have a vegetarian version with raisins and walnuts - the texture is like ground beef. I'll post it later.
