How To Make The Best Chili Ever Recipe

I truly believe I make the best chili ever and I have been working on my chili recipes for the last thirty years or more. I love sharing so here I am going to try to teach you how I make what many people claim is the best chili that they have ever tasted.

Now let me tell you some things about this chili recipe. You really do not want to make this chili in a slow cooker or crock pot. You will need a large stock pot for this chili and you will want to cook this chili down until it thickens. Cooking it down is very important.

This chili recipe makes a lot of chili but you can freeze part of your chili as this chili will keep very well in the freezer. Here's a tip for you. Spray the inside of your plastic containers with vegetable cooking spray so your chili will not stain your plastic containers.

For Your Chili Recipe You Will Need.

1. Three Pounds Ground Chuck.

2. One Pound Ground Pork.

3. One Tablespoon Minced Fresh Garlic.

4. One Cup Fresh Yellow Onion Diced Fine.

5. One Cup Green Bell Peppers Diced Fine.

6. Sixteen Ounces Tomato Sauce.

7. Four Cups Canned Beef Broth.

8. One Twelve Ounce Can Beer.

9. Four Tablespoons Chili Powder.

10. One Tablespoon Cumin.

11. Two Tablespoons Brown Sugar.

12. One Tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa.

You will want to start by browning your ground chuck and ground pork in a large skillet and chop the meat up as it cooks with a large cooking spoon. Stir your meat often and as soon as it is thoroughly browned you will want to drain your meat well and when you have it well drained pour it into a large stock pot.

Now you will want to cook your onion , garlic , and bell peppers until they are tender and done. Once they are done pour them out into the stock pot.

Now you can add all the rest of the ingredients to your stock pot and bring almost to a boil but not quite. Now reduce the heat to a low medium and continue to cook stirring often. You want to cook your chili down until it thickens slightly. Be sure that you stir often so that it does not stick. It is really important that your chili does cook and you want to cook it until it thickens. This is the reason this chili will not work in a crock pot or slow cooker.

In case you're wondering any alcohol in the beer will cook away during the cooking process. If you don't want to or can't use the beer in your recipe use 12 ounces of apple cider instead.

This is not a real hot or spicy chili but most people love this chili. If you want to you can add a teaspoon of ground cayenne pepper or a tablespoon of hot pepper sauce to the chili.

I serve corn bread squares , sour cream , guacamole , shredded cheese , and etc on the side with my chili. You can really serve what you like with your chili.
