Re: Chili- share your recipe!

Another one I love- Pulled Pork Chili.

1-2 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil
1 boneless pork roast, about 1 1/2 lbs., trimmed of fat
1/2 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 large can (15 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 can (15 1/2 oz.) red kidney beans, drained & rinsed
1 can (15 1/2 oz.) black beans, drained & rinsed
2 tbsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander (or you can substitute an additional tsp. of cumin)
Toppings such as sour cream & grated cheese

1. (Optional step) Preheat a large skillet (I use a 12-inch cast iron pan) to medium-high. Drizzle the pan with oil. Next, place the pork roast in the hot pan, and leave undisturbed for 3 minutes to brown. Flip to the other side, and continue browning each side like this, until pork is browned on most surfaces. Remove from pan and place in slow cooker.

2. Add a little more oil to pan, then add diced onions. Saute until onions are lightly browned. Add minced garlic, cook for 30 more seconds, then add about 1/4 cup of the broth. Stir pan, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom. Pour this mixture in the slow cooker.

3. Add remaining ingredients to slow cooker, stir. (Alternately, just add all ingredients at once.) Cover and cook on high for about 7 hours (or low for 10-12 hours). Remove pork from slow cooker. Shred, then mix it in with the chili.

Re: Chili- share your recipe!

I love this one. It is a little spicy, but so good!
Chipotle, Beef, and Bean Chili
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 medium yellow onions, medium dice
3 chipotles in adobo sauce, minced
1/4 cup chili powder
3 tablespoons ground cumin
2 tablespoons sweet paprika
2 pounds lean (15 percent fat) ground chuck
5 teaspoons kosher salt
3 (15-ounce) cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes

In a Dutch oven or a large, heavy-bottomed pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and onions, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and just starting to brown, about 7 minutes.
Add the chipotles, chili powder, cumin, and paprika; stir to coat the onions; and cook until the spices are deep brown in color and fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the ground beef and measured salt and stir, breaking the meat into small pieces. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is no longer pink and is well-coated with spices, about 6 minutes.
Add the beans and tomatoes with their juices and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and simmer, uncovered and stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper as desired.

Tips: If you like milder spicing, you can reduce the number of chipotles used.
Like all stews, this chili improves as it sits, so itís a great dish to make ahead.

My changes: 2 Chipotles, 2 T chili powder, regular ground beef cooked and drained, 2 quart jars home bottled tomatoes roughly chopped while in bottle. 3 Cans Great northern beans
Result: Good but a little on the spicy side. I donít think it matters on the beans- next time I might try other beans as well. The Great northern were good. I just didnít have any pinto beans.

Re: Chili- share your recipe!

I like to keep mine pretty simple

1 large (29 oz) can tomato sauce
4 cans of beans, drained (I like to mix and match pinto, red, and black beans)
1–2 Tbsp cumin
2 Tbsp chili powder
Ĺ tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
Ĺ tsp crushed red pepper
1 lb ground beef, browned and drained

Mix all ingredients in a large pot and heat over low to medium-low heat. If you have time, leave it to simmer for at least 60 minutes. You can also mix it together in a crock pot and heat on low for 4 hours. If you have less time, simmer 30-60 minutes until heated through.
Serve with grated cheese, sour cream, and tortilla chips or corn bread.
Serves 6–8

Re: Chili- share your recipe!

I make a pretty basic chili, though I do like to put a little cocoa in it. But I think the fun part is the toppings. I worked at a school where they did "Haystackers" and it really makes chili much more enjoyable for us. Start with rice, then stack on crushed Fritos, Chili, cheese, salsa, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, guacomole, olives, or whatever other things you can find. Yum.

Re: Chili- share your recipe!

1lb ground beef
1 large can diced tomatos
1 can of kidney beans
1 large can of baked beans
1 can of sloppy joe sauce
1 diced onion
1 jar of medium heat salsa.
I throw all in pot n simmer. I rather stew type than soupy but u can add water. I use about 1 cup water n don't drain any of the cans. I have put hot salsa n red pepper In the chili In past for sweet n spicy. But now I don't use the pepper or hot salsa cause my kids love it.

I serve with shredded cheese n chips
