What special ingredient do you put in your homemade chili con carne recipe?


I like Italian sausage in mine. Sometimes I use the spicy sausage and other times the mild. Photo credit, Wikipedia Creative Commons by Carstor.

    My gosh that sounds so good. Beef chuck has such a great flavor and I bet the masa adds more flavor also. I will have to try this recipe. Thanks Old-Empresario.

    Sounds like a great chili, Rachel. The salsa and extra chili sauce must really perk it up. Thanks.

    Hi MizB. A favorite brand really makes a difference. I also stick with the brand I like. Thanks for commenting.

    OMGosh, Lisa - I never heard of anyone using pumpkin in their chili recipe. I bet it does give it a nice thick texture. And a touch of cinnamon probably adds a subtle mystery to the taste. Thanks for commenting.

    Very interesting recipe, MsLizzy. It is not chili con carne, though. I think I would like the corn, but not the bulgar wheat. Thanks for commenting.
