I *looooove* chili, and I thought since it's winter, and a nice hot bowl of chili is always *YUMMY* on a cold day (or any day for that matter) we could post some recipes for different chili's.

I had my mom write down her recipe (since someone asked for a good one) and i'll tell ya.. it's AWESOME.

Here it is:

1 & 1/2 lbs ground round
3 cans dark red Kidney beans
2 large cans diced tomato
chili powder to taste

Brown ground beef, drain fat off
Mix all together.

Simmer 1/2 cup diced onions & 1/2 cup diced celery in little water.
Add to chili mixture
Simmer hour or so.

Also, she says if you have green pepper you can add that as well. (1/2 cup diced and simmered with onions and celery.)

Enjoy! :cool:

Kay...that sounds a lot like my mom's recipe...

Her's is:

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1 medium onion finely chopped
1 (28 oz) cans of crushed tomatos
1 can of tomato paste
2/3 to 1 can of water (use the can from the tomato paste)
1 tsp. salt
pepper to taste
2-3 tbsp. chili powder
1 clove garlic, minced
2-3 bay leaves
pinch of oregano
2 large (19 oz each) cans of kidney beans

Brown beef (drain fat), brown onion, add salt, pepper and other spices, add all tomato ingredients including water...simmer 1hr- 1.5hrs.

Add beans and cook one more hour...make sure to stir occasionally, b/c beans can stick to bottom of pan.

Optional: Can add shredded cheddar, sour cream, bread and butter, tortillas, or whatever else you like...and enjoy!!

This is my own special recipe:

My boyfriend has a water smoker so I use smoked chicken breasts in mine but you could use regular chicken, too.

2 chicken breasts, smoked
1 large can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 14 oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1 onion chopped and sauteed in olive oil
1 green pepper chopped and sauteed in olive oil
2 14 oz cans stewed tomatoes
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon meican oregano
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Place all ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on high for 1 hour then on low for 4-5 hours.

You can adjust the spiciness by adding or taking out some of the chili powder and cayenne. If you like a thicker chili then add some cornstartch at the end and cook for another 15 min.

Garnish with sour cream and green onions if desired.
