Mine's not authentic, and certainly not exact, but I like it and make it pretty much the same way every time. I use, strike that, I *used* to use my enameled dutch oven. Fucking POS Lodge.

2 tbspns olive oil (or enough to coat the bottom of the pan)
1 lb mixed ground pork and beef (I like the pork fat, which gives it a more rounded taste, I think). Sometimes I use ground bison or venison depending on what's on hand.
1 onion, diced
1 or 2 green bell peppers, diced (roughly in proportion to your onion)
3-4 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 jalapenos, seeded and diced (wear gloves)
1 16 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
1 16 ounce can of black beans
1 bottle dark stout/porter
2 tbspns tomato paste

Heat the pan on med. high, add the oil, toss in the veggies, add a healthy pinch of kosher salt and keep stirring til they're transparent, and add yer meat. Brown it all up good, and then add a tablespoon or two of chili powder, a couple three grinds of black pepper, some crushed/ground cumin, maybe a teaspoon or two, stir until incorporated and fragrant. Deglaze with the beer, reduce a little and add the tomatoes, paste, and beans. If it's too thick, thin it with water. Reduce the heat to medium-low, low and simmer covered for about 45 minutes to an hour.

I serve it up with crusty bread/sourdough, sour creme, fresh grated cheddar, and some hot sauce (Cholua) to taste.

I think I've posted this somewhere else, and I know Alpo posted his smoked beef chili on here too (Search ribs and chili done right).

 this is far from authentic, but it's very good.


  • 4 pounds ground beef
  • 12 ounces bacon
  • 4 cups diced yellow onions
  • 4 (12-ounce) bottles dark beer
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans whole tomatoes, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 chopped fresh chipotles
  • 4 (15-ounce) cans mixed beans, drained and rinsed
Flavor Wave 1
 
  • 4 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon hickory smoked kosher salt
  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons Emeril's Southwest Essence
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 5 chicken bullion cubes
  • 2 teaspoons Morton's Hot Salt
Flavor Wave 2
 
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 ounce (1 square) unsweetened chocolate
Slice the bacon, fry it up in a big chili/stock pot, remove it from the pan and set it aside.
 
Brown the meat in the same pan, drain, and set aside. While that’s cooking, is a good time to get the rest of your ingredients ready.
 
Add your onions and Flavor Wave 1 to the pot. Cook until the onions start to become translucent. Then add the garlic and chipotles, and cook for a few more minutes.
 
Put the meat back in the pot, then add the beer. Bring to a mild boil, and cook until the foam subsides.
 
Add the crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, and Flavor Wave 2. Bring that to a boil, stirring as you go. You need to be careful not to let that chocolate square burn to the bottom of the pot.
 
Once it’s boiling, reduce to a simmer, and cook for at least 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
 
Add your beans, and simmer for another 30 minutes. I like to mix up the beans. I usually go with black, pinto, white and red beans (one can of each).
 
Serve with grated cheese or a plunk of sour cream in the middle.
 
Variation: Mix up the meat! Many people prefer to forego the ground beef, and go with steak. Others like game meats, such as venison or bison. My personal favorite is 3 lbs of ground beef, and 1 lb of smoked pulled pork

stickerking - looks good devil but no spices? i go chili powder cumin oregeno garlic and onion powder

I listed the spice in the directions. I use fresh garlic and onion, chili powder and ground toasted cumin. The jalapenos provide enough heat for me. I threw in some diced cherry peppers from this garden this summer and that was pretty tasty.

i made this at my pizzeria last week... had lots of compliments and people say this was the best chili they ever tasted in their life.... i used 4 bottles of guinness
 i used this recipe as a starting point and modified a few things...  jalapenos for chipotles... more seasonings....no bacon.....extra crushed tomatoes
this will be my go to recipe for chili


Going to use this as a base and use Crocodile as the meat source and red wine instead of beer. I have been entered in a Chili Show Down Sept. 11th.

1. Make a spice mix, quantities can vary based on preference, with sea salt, fresh ground black pepper, ground corriander, ground cumin, mixed spice, ground ginger, garlic granules, chilli powder and cayanne pepper. Go heavy on the cumin as there's no beans so needs a hit of earthiness.

2. Get a little olive oil hot in a saucepan. Throw in 2 finely diced carrots, stir and cover. Sweat until slighly sweet and toss in a little of the spice mix and cook out for a min.

3. Add 2 finely diced white onions and one finely diced red onion. Cover again to sweat and caremelise a little. Again sprinkle a little of the spice mix.

4. Add half a pound of ground beef in little nuggets. Cook just until the rawness has gone and sprinkle another bit of the spice mix and a few good glugs of worcester sauce.

5. Add half a pint of beef stock, a tin of chopped tomatos and a punnet of cherry tomatos. Add the last of the spice mix.

6. Put on a high boil just until the tomatos burst, then turn down low, leave uncovered, and cook for 2 hours.

7. Give it one final high blast just to boil away any last bit of liquid.

8. Eat.
