    One of my favorites is Chili Con Carne and I really enjoy eating it. I use chili peppers, garlic, onions, cumin and tomatoes and I end up with a oh so delicious chili.

    I also make wonderful Chili with no beans like they make in Texas.

    What is your favorite chili. Below is my recipe for the Chili Con Carne.

    1. Two Pounds Of Ground Beef Fried Brown And Drained.
    2. Twenty Eight Ounce Can Diced Tomatoes.
    3. Two Tablespoons Fresh Ground Garlic.
    4. Four Jalapenos or Serrano  with seeds removed.
    5. One Fourth Cup Chili Powder.
    6. One Large Sweet Onion Chopped And Cooked.
    7. One Tablespoon Cumin.
    8. On Teaspoon Sea Salt.
    9. Four Cans Of Red Kidney Beans Washed And Drained Well.
    10. One Six Ounce Can Tomato Paste.
    11. Four Cups Beef Broth.
    12. Two Bay Leafs. , Remove Before Serving.

    Cook your onions and hamburger and put all your ingredients in a large crock pot or slow cooker.

    If your chili gets to thick for you add another cup of beef broth not water.

    Cook on high for eight hours. Stir about every hour.

    You'll end up with a wonderful delicious chili. Remove the bay leaves and peppers before you serve with squares of cornbread and you'll have a wonderful meal.


    Thanks Crazyhorsesghost

    I will look forward to your replies.

      Hello there, please dont mind my ignorance but what are chilis.....I mean its a dish? accompanied by bread or bun??

      I am a srilankan we love spicy food i eat peppers till i hear a ringing in my hears hehe........:-)

      i thought this thread was about my favourite chili? as in sri lanka there are about 5 kinds on chilis alone not capsicum or peppers..

      and there is one that tastes like butter.....its the spiciest. very small size of a coin. (its round) I can challenge that no one will eat even 5 of them.

      So is this a dish   ....watever it is i will insha llah try it.....sounds and looks delicious.

        Yes, we sometimes refer to peppers as chiles or chile peppers, but chili is also a dish. There are different ways to spell it, chilli, chili, chile, so it gets confusing, especially with chile peppers. Chile peppers are usually cooked into chili, so I'm sure that's where the dish gets its name, but it does make it that much more confusing.

    I like to make Turkey chili with
    green chili verde, it's not as spicy but it's full of flavor

    For me, the key to delicious chili is making your own chili powder. I like to use 6 ancho peppers, 3 guajillo peppers, 1 chipotle pepper (all these peppers are dried), 2 Tablespoons cumin seeds, 2 Tablespoons garlic powder and 1 Tablespoon dried oregano. I also fire roast the fresh chiles for extra flavor. I wrote a recipe hub about it a while back...how to create your own signature chili recipe.

    I have a chili hub, too. That recipe is my favorite because I make it with very lean meat and lots of beans and vegetables, so it's low-fat and healthy. It is made with fresh meat, onions and peppers but canned tomatoes and beans, so it's quick to throw together.

    Of course, it is better the longer it simmers, but I used a can or two of Rsnch Style beans, which gives the chili a great flavor even if I don't have time to simmer it all day. (I am always having to throw dinner together at 6 pm. or sometimes later.)

    I will have to try your recipe, CrazyHorsesGhost, it sounds delish! Maybe on a Saturday when I can let it simmer for 8 hours. Yum!

    it seems a waste of a perfectly good recipe and commentary to make this into a question on the forums rather than a Hub.  In answer to your question, I make my own and I have many different kinds I make and enjoy.
