    OK, I confess--I don't watch the Superbowl. I like chili though.

    What's your best recipe?

    I take about 3 pounds of ground round, 1 pound of country sausage, a chopped yellow onion, a teaspoon of chopped garlic, two cans of chiles, and a chopped green pepper and saute all of that until the onions are clear. Then I add three cans of chopped tomatoes with chiles and onions, a jar of enchilada sauce, a tablespoon of sugar, a tablespoon of cornmeal, a tablespoon of chili powder (or more), a cup of dark coffee, and small can of tomato paste, and a dash of red pepper. Add some water if its too thick. Let that cook for a couple hours.

    About an hour before you're ready to eat add a big can of Brooks Chili Hot beans, a can of cannelini beans (16 oz), a can of black beans, and a can of garbanzo beans. Heat all the way through and serve with grated cheese and cornbread. smile

    Pam I'm sorry your thread here isn't getting much love! I was thinking it was going to be a huge hit.

    And as far as our chili preferences, my wife is an expert at combining all the different types of beans and ground beef and I typically come in for the spices!

    Spices I like to add to chili:

    Freshly pressed garlic cloves (the more the merrier)
    Cayenne pepper (if you want kick)
    A ton of garlic powder
    Taco seasoning packets
    Minced garlic

    See a trend? GARLIC!

    And the longer you let it sit (preferably in a crock pot), the better the seasonings get absorbed by the different ingredients.

    Looking forward to seeing some other recipes.
