    Getting to be that time - Chili

    So it's getting cooler, closer to good weather for chili.

    So here's a recipe

    Pretty good Easy Chili

    2 1/2 lbs ground chuck
    1 large onion, chopped fine
    2 28 oz cans whole tomatoes
    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    1 green or other color bell pepper, diced (optional)
    8 oz mushrooms, sliced thinly (optional)
    salt
    chili powder to taste
    1 16 oz can dark red chile beans (optional)

    1 Brown meat & onion.
    2 Pour off grease.
    3 Add tomatoes (squished) & tomato paste.
    4 Add green pepper and mushrooms if desired.
    5 Add chile powder & salt to taste (takes quite a bit of chili powder).
    6 Cook covered for 1 hour.
    7 Add beans.

    Cooking Tips

    If it's at all greasy, rinse with hot water when draining off fat.
    Freezes very well.

    2 Heat 3 Tbs. oil in dutch oven.
    3 Add meat all at once. Sear it, turning constantly, 3-4 minutes until lightly browned.
    4 Remove meat with slotted spoon and set aside.
    5 Add 2 Tbs. oil to pot. Sauté onion and garlic till onion is wilted, not brown.

        My chili recipe;

        Drive to Wendy's.
        Go slowly through the parking lot.
        Go around the building to the back at the drive through menu.
        Stop.
        Respond to the mystery person when they ask you "May I help you".
        Order 3 small chilis @ $1.59/each plus tax, (no cheese).
        Proceed to the first window and pay.
        Proceed to the second window and pick up your chili.
        Carefully drive to a parking spot.
        Remove one chili from the bag, open and set it on the dashboard.
        Let it breath properly.
        Remove 3 crackers packages from the bag.
        Pulverize them with your knuckles and gently empty them into the chili.
        Stir.
        Remove 3 paper napkins and one plastic spoon.
        Enjoy your 190 calories, 6G fat, and 14G of protein!

        p.s. crack your window open a little in case of gas.

                I laughed and made fun of my best buddy when he brought over a pot of chili for a football game one day that had mushrooms in it. I told him, NOBODY puts mushrooms in chili...........I'm so glad he's not a member this forum!!!! His chili was pretty good, but MUSHROOMS??

                All jokes aside, believe it or not, Wendys chili ain't that bad and is a big bang for your buck!! Ask long as you know how to order in any language other than English!

                  Ah, a few mushrooms never hurt anyone. I never used to add them, but my husband likes them.

                  Who is he? I'm gonna tell...

                    Here is the one I make it's hot and sweet which is always a good thing,



                    1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
                    3 14 ounce cans red kidney beans
                    1 14 ounce can brown beans in tomato sauce or pork and beans
                    3 14 ounce cans tomatoes; pureed in blender
                    2 pounds minced beef or lean hamburger, browned
                    1 teaspoon crushed garlic
                    1 teaspoon cayenne powder
                    2 teaspoons chili powder
                    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper or local fresh hot peppers to taste
                    2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
                    1 square unsweetened baking chocolate

                    Brown meat. Combine spices with tomatoes in blender. Combine all ingredients except chocolate and peanut butter in pot. Heat until warm, then add chocolate and peanut butter, stirring until they are mixed in. Bake at 300F or on the stove at low heat for 6 to 12 hours, stirring regularly. You should not need to add additional water, as the tomatoes have plenty. Freezes well, tastes great.

                      Wow that's different. Sounds very interesting - peanut butter and chocolate. Heck, I like peanut butter cups, so why not...

                      Seriously, that probably gives a very interesting flavor - chocolate is used in Mexican sauces, and I've used peanut butter in African and Thai dishes - they aren't just for desserts.

                        I too add a bit of cocoism. Never tried peanutbutter. I will try it.

                            Oh yeah, I absolutely love mushrooms and they were good in the chili, I had just never heard of them in chili!! Even though I liked his chili and the shrooms, I'll save them for sketti sauce and to stuff with crab meat!

                              My "bachelor" chili recipe. "Quick & dirty" is programmer lingo for a piece of code done in a hurry that ain't too pretty but gets the job done. I put this in a company cook book at an insurance company where I used to work.

                              Quick & Dirty Chili Beans

                              1 lb ground chuck
                              1 green bell pepper, chopped
                              1 medium onion, chopped
                              1 regular size can diced tomatoes
                              1 16 oz can pinto beans
                              1 can Green Giant "shoepeg" corn (optional; adds crunch & a little sweetness)
                              1 package French's Chili-o mix
                              1 handful dirt
                              1 tsp salt or to taste

                              brown ground beef, onion, bell pepper together
                              add tomatoes, chili mix, beans, and corn
                              add water if too thick, simmer 30-40 mins
                              throw dirt away, wash hands

                              I got the corn idea from my aunt's "tamale casserole", a similar mixture minus beans with a layer of cornbread baked on top. Also a nice cool weather dish.
