I made this monday, been eatin it all week

1 lb ground beef - brown in butter in a pan - drain
1/2 lb your favorite ground pork sausage - brown in a pan
1 large green pepper - sliced
2 sweet hungarian peppers - sliced
3 serrano or jalapeno peppers - sliced
2 medium white onions - sliced and sauteed in butter
4 celery stalks - chopped
4+ cloves garlic - sliced and sauteed with the onions
1 1/2 pound chopped tomatoes - mine were fresh - peeled and seeded, if you use canned drain them
1 pound red kidney beans - dried beans prepared, not canned

I also add a can or busch's traditional chili starter, dunno why - I guess it adds anything I might have missed

season with chili powder, powdered red pepper, crushed red pepper, and 4-6 bay leaves

serve with shredded colby jack and sour cream

I've never documented how much of each ingredient I put in my Chili. I just keep adding stuff until it tastes and looks right.

agreed

It starts out with the ingredients I want to put in, and ends up with those ingredients plus whatever I think up that day.

If at all possible, I make it Friday night, along with another meal, and it goes in the fridge overnight to be brought to a slow simmer on Saturday. You gotta give those ingredients a chance to meet and greet before you eat.

Yes, a lot of green stuff.. Also, it doesn't have a very chili'ish smell to it. And I was surprised by no cumin... Doesn't all chili have cumin? Will know more in while

Salsa is a great addition and I do use it sometimes

I made this one for a chili day at work a few years back, and it got very high reviews.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound ground beef
3/4 pound beef sirloin, cubed
1 (14.5 ounce) can peeled and diced tomatoes with juice
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle dark beer
1 cup strong brewed coffee
2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
1 (14 ounce) can beef broth
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin seeds
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon salt
4 (15 ounce) cans kidney beans
4 fresh hot chile peppers, seeded and chopped


DIRECTIONS:
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook onions, garlic, ground beef and cubed sirloin in oil for 10 minutes, or until the meat is well browned and the onions are tender.
Mix in the diced tomatoes with juice, dark beer, coffee, tomato paste and beef broth. Season with brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, cocoa powder, oregano, cayenne pepper, coriander and salt. Stir in 2 cans of the beans and hot chile peppers. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
Stir in the 2 remaining cans of beans, and simmer for another 30 minutes.
