    What did you use for spices? I put cayenne, paprika, and cinnamon in mine.

    I'll be making it in the next few days as well. Pretty excited about it.

    Damn good stuff!

    I make up a "wall of fire" ...

    1. Naga Jolokia
    2. Scotch Bonnet
    3. Habanero
    4. Chipotle
    5. Jalapeno
    6. Cayenne Pepper
    7. Chilli Powder
    8. Garlic
    9. Paprika
    10. Ginger

    ... to completely assault every part of the mouth, but offset some heat with 100% chocolate.

    Where many award winning recipes call for onion powder, I just blend up pre-fried onions with garlic, ginger and jalapeno which turns out quite light, but darkens as it cooks out. This leaves you with a thick, hot brown sauce around meat. Simple, effective and damn goregous!





    HOT! HOT!

    Is that ground beef?!?!? My husband (displaced Texan) calls that hamburger soup LOL According to him, Texas red chili is always made with chunks of beef, never ground beef...and never with beans.

    He makes a damn good Texas Red (though he has toned down the heat just a touch so I can actually eat it)...It takes several hours and involves three different spice dumps!

    Hamburger Soup! That's great

    Yeah, I found all manner of recipes using ground meat, chunks, pre-cooked, cooled and re-cooked chunks, all sorts.
    I think it does look best with chunks of meat - I like a mixture of pork and beef.

    Dried beans are both light and cheap, and, of course, an excellent source of dietary fiber.

    In cooking, it was probably a day to soak (incidentally, the water that we discard from soaking beans has some miraculous properties in cleaning your clothes, according to 18th/19th century writings) and likely a day to cook...

    In moving big cattle herds, it was periodically necessary to let the herd rest and forage, let alone allow the cowboys a decent wash, rest and feed up...no doubt the chuck wagons were busy during this "still" time, and I think it reasonable to believe that beans were an integral part of "Texas" or "Cowboy" chili..
