All right fellas. I know there has to be a few out there with the skill to make a nice pot of chili for themselves and their friends. So, what are some of your recipes and little tricks? What do you do to make that absolute top of the line pot of chili?
I will start with what works for me. I never use a "pre-packaged" spice package. I always use my own spices and try to find the fresh ones if I can. I love to use jalapenos when ever possible. For those who like the flavor but not the heat, remove the seeds.
One little seasoning I love to use that I have had great reviews on is chocolate. Yes, chocolate. I use a dash of unsweetened bakers chocolate power. It adds a very nice flavor base tha tmany love but can not identify.
Anyway, are there any recipes that anyone is willing to share or any thing they do that makes their chili the best?

My chili is made from whatever I have in the house as far as spices (I have a LARGE stash of spices). My favorite meat is ground venison and the secret ingredient is a pint of Stout, or occasionally, a heavily hopped IPA in lieu of water (I prefer the stout). I use a can of Habanero Rotel for 1/2 the tomato sauce and a couple of cans of sliced Jalapenos. It's just right when a stainless spoon evaporates on contact!!

I make my "Rip you a new a$$hole" chile once a year for our office Christmas pig out that's coming up in a few weeks.

It's basically:

12 Habeneros
12 Jalepenos
12 Serranos
2 Green peppers
2 Red peppers
1 Large onion
1 Can chili beans in hot sauce
1 Can kidney beans, drained
2 Cans of stewed tomatoes
1 Small can of tomato paste
3 lbs ground beef, browned & drained
Lotsa garlic
Some chili powder & currie

Dice everything up, throw it in the crockpot and let her cook for 6hrs.

NOTE: For you contact wearing cooks - REMOVE CONTACTS FIRST! Trust me - OUCH. Oh, and wear gloves when dicing misc peppers!!

Mouth is just watering thinking about it....as are my eyes.

Mmmmmmm

I'm right about where you are mike, maybe a little lighter on the peppers so that everybody can eat it.
I change it up often too. The last few times, in addition to either leftover steak or fresh gound beef, I add in some cooked Jimmy Dean HOT sausage, crumbled of course.

Some great ideas. I really like Mike Shermans chili recipe. That is worth trying I was told by one firefighter ( I am making this for my fire department I serve on) he wants his a** too burn for 3 days after words. I can do that I think. I have this sauce I put in, it is called Xtreme sauce. It is wonderful. It contains habeneros, garlic, salt, and of all things carrots. It is very hot but has such a wonderful flavor. The flavor is what makes it great, not just heat but has flavor.

I love the stuff. Not a bad price but a good bit of heat in that bottle

I don't make it too hot because no one will eat it, but I do have some Ghost peppers waiting to be used.

Try substituting Pork Tenderloin rather than beef. Excellent every time.

Base recipe

Rotor Head's Chili

OK, here is the base recipe I use. I use this as a guide and modify it. I never make it quite the same twice.

3 pounds of ground beef..or what ever (bear is quite good from what I hear)
2 buds of garlic (just add a bunch, and since chopping garlic is work, I use minced)
6 Tbsp of chili powder (I usually run around 5 myself)
1 tsp comino seeds (normally not used cause I can't find it locally. Good reason isn't it)
1 HUGE onion (or a couple or 3 smaller ones)
1 can of tomato paste (I normally use 2 small ones or 1 big one)
1 can kidney beans (I use 2 or mix it with 1 and 2 cans chili beans)
****I am drooling already as I write this****
1 big can of V8 (I also add the can worth of water as this is in a large roaster for my fire department) note: spicy V8 adds zip.
4 beef bouillon cubes or if you hate opening those dang little cubes a can or two of beef broth
A generous helping of GOOD QUALITY ground black pepper. (I like cayenne best)
Xtreme sauce to taste
Any additional peppers you have, can buy, trade helicopter parts for, or sell your buddys plank for....
Heck for that matter what ever ever else is not tied down...

Brown up the meat....or if you don't care....dont
If time allows simmer the meat with the onions, comino seeds, and chili powder. (jalapenos and fennel too) If you don't have the time...don't
Dump all the meat and stuff in a large crock or roaster and cook on high for about 3 hours or 5 hours on low or what ever you want
Add beans about 1 hour before serving. (I never wait, dump in all the stuff and go with it form the word go)
I also add some fennel seeds, some unsweetened bakers chocolate powder and a Jalapeno or habenaro or 5. (great for those experimenters)
Best served with cornbread fingers, real butter, real sour cream and a good quality shredded cheddar cheese (sharp) and if you want crackers.

Remember what indicators are there for a good chili. My indicators are 2 paper towels (one to wipe my mouth and one to wipe the sweat off my brow) and 2 glasses of milk per bowl to help quench the fire.

Last remember to enjoy this with a fire department (in my case), your football buddies, the flying club, family or just yourself if you are really hungry.
