Wicked Homemade Chili For A Crowd

Updated on June 27, 2017

I grew up in a small town called Whitesburg, Georgia. As a poor Woodard girl, I had to make my own living and opportunities.

Freeze Leftovers

A Good Cook Dispenses Happiness

Basically, in every kitchen sits an abundance of ingredients that are unexplored; especially when the process demands little more effort than what's required to switch on the oven.

Anyone can be lured over to their mysterious side and come up with a scrumptious meal with a twist. If you think you don't like spicy foods, you might want to give them another chance. It's possible to build up a tolerance to peppers so you can grow to enjoy them. And remember that even though the peppers might feel painful, it's just an illusion.

(When you eat a chili pepper, capsaicin binds to and activates TRPD. You're not actually in any danger; your body naturally thinks it's being exposed to extreme heat.)

There such stylishness that goes into the technique, transforming into something exceptionally remarkable, which demonstrates the mastery of any chef or cook; it strikes me as being a bewitching sort of everyday charm. Ater all, it's passion that makes the world go around.

Simple ingredients layered into a classic dish. From fridge to table in less than one hour, they may truly seem like the product of some black magic.

This is every cook's opinion -

no savory dish without an onion,

but lest your kissing should be spoiled

your onions must be fully boiled.

— ~Jonathan Swift

My lips stung, and the lining of my mouth was hot with quick and then prickling pains. I had taken two red frenzies, and without sweat, without the hard blowing of the breath. Then a red torrid. My lips had hardened to the sting, but my mouth was burning inside. Then the tingle was in my throat and deep down. Now a greenish yellow fury. I felt the sweat ooze out on the back of my neck, down under my collar. I was hurting, the numbing burn of piperine, a crystalline alkaloid that tightens the tissues like wet rawhide. Each minute got longer. Next, a green buster. The heat seared down to my belly. ~James Street

Dr. Mercola Talks About The Health Benefits of Spices

About half of Americans (54 percent) enjoy spicy foods, which is considerably less than in some other areas of the world, like India, Asia, and Central America, where chili peppers and other spicy foods are considered staples.

If you're one of those people who love a bit of heat with virtually any meal, you're in luck, as spicy foods are among the best for your health. They contain potent plant compounds called capsaicinoids, which have been found to prevent chronic diseases.

The Sky's The Limit


I don t know if it is Heavenly delightful or Sinfully delicious. There are many ways to make a pot of chili and many ways to serve chili, freshly made or leftovers. As with many other foods. However, you can't have all that yumminess without spices.

  • Compounds called capsaicinoids in chili peppers; linked to a lower risk of chronic disease, weight loss and more
  • Capsaicin, a capsaicinoid, stimulates TRPV1 receptors, which are found in many body tissues and appears to be responsible for many of spicy foods’ beneficial effects
  • Capsaicin stimulates beneficial brown fat, helping to boost metabolic rate, and potentially speed weight loss.

As the days grow short, some faces grow long. But not mine. Every autumn, when the wind turns cold and darkness comes early, I am suddenly happy. It's time to start making chili again.

      Very good but needs less chili powder. I ate it with crackers and sour cream.
