How much did you put in?

undetermined, beyond "too much".

I was stirring it and the lid popped off.

I figured with 3 pounds of beef, it would be edible, but it isn't.

My guess....1-1.5 tablespoon or so.

I did that. I put mustard in and that seemed to temper the cinnamon.

Anywhere near that much is way, way, way too much. Sorry.

My chili (which kicks ass, IIDSSM) uses about 2 pounds of meat and I never use more than about 1/4 teaspoon. You used 12X that much.

Truly not trying to rub salt in the wound, but generally it's a good idea to not go directly from spice jar to pot. Always use your hand or a spoon or something to "measure".

I made some "chili," but not technically chili, more like goulash or something. Whatever, it was good eats.

1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 big can of black beans
1 big can of pinto beans
2 big cans of crushed tomatoes
1 small can of diced tomatoes
2 cans of corn
1 diced onion
5 cloves of garlic
1/3 of a bottle of sriacha
5 diced jalepenos
2 bottles of IPA beer
a bunch of paprika and black pepper

cooked on low for about 3 hours on the stovetop in a huge ass pot

topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream and some tortilla chips to dip with

easy and delicous!

yeah, normally I would at least not be stirring it today, but I was running behind after braving ToysRUs shopping before the game.

Bah, had to toss it. Leasson learned. My tongue will never forgive me though.

Anyone else put vinegar in chili? My old man showed me that when I was a kid. Absolutely delicious.
I think it was a St. Joe thing.

Sorry Gonzo, vinegar is disgusting. As a toddler, my mom used to put it on my back when I had a sunburn and pretty much since then, I gag at the smell.

Dumb question but why cinnamon? I prefer spicier more flavorful chili, What does the cinnamon "balance out"?

Tip: Always measure ingredients away from the pan or pot. You'll avoid many a disaster that way.

Sorry, Dude.

I thought the same thing before I tried it. It does something chemically to make traditional Chili taste awesome.

Now then Cinnamon is something I've never heard of either.

Speaking of weird shit like that. I saw this dude at my work put that hot sauce with the wooden cap, (Chuhola or something?) On watermelon. I shit you not. He said it makes watermelon turn super sweet basically. I've been wanting to try it.

Cinnamon in Chili doesn't sound good to me, but I suppose it's not really supposed to lend it's true cinnamon flavor.....vinegar sounds interesting? I suppose it could help break down the meat more to get more flavor from it? Not sure, but I'd try that before the cinnamon thing.

I took a vacation day because of the early Raider game and late KC game.

Made some awesome chili. Added some schredded roast to it with 3 peppers and.....fuck....it was good.

Then the pinnacle of the day concluded with us getting face raped.

So I ask you: whut the fuck am I to do with tasty face rape chili? What?

There's no way to eat that without showering with a damned brillo pad afterwards...

You know now that you mention it and provided the link, we have a place called Hard Times Cafe and they serve a Cinncinnati style chile and damned if cinnamon isn't the flavor I didn't care for in that chili. All about region I guess...I was excited to try the Cinncinnati style chili and was disappointed to say the least.

Sorry, Dude.

Vinegar is an absolute must ingredient in chili. I've used it ever since I saw a Paula Dean episode years ago. I have friends ask all the time what is in it that zings it up so well, and it is simply about a quarter cup of vinegar for a large pot (6 quarts or so) of chili. Also, cinnimon has no place in chili if you ask me.

Sorry, Dude.

You can't taste the cinnamon, but it gives a background note that's hard to define. It's an "it" ingredient that a lot of people will go, "Damn, that's really good. What's in it?"

My chili has quite a bit of spice and flavor. The cinnamon just adds a depth of flavor.

That's why I had the word in quotes. I don't measure, but I use the palm of my hand to eyeball it. One, so I have an idea of how much I'm putting in. Two, so I don't accidentally dump a half a jar of cinnamon in my chili.

You certainly don't see Bobby Flay or Gordon Ramsay or any other professional chef going straight from jar to pot.

The first time I make a recipe, I make it as instructed. If I like it, I'll keep using it as a base, but make my own modifications as I go. My recipe is barely recognizable next to this one now, but this is where it started. It was also my first experience with cinnamon in chili.

I was talking with my buddy at work today about chili recipes, and was telling him that my old teacher in high school swore up and down that cinnamon adds a lot of spice to chili. He didn't believe me and we were wondering just how much cinnamon to add to chili. So I googled "how much cinnamon to put in chili" and I'll be god damned if this thread didn't pop up in the first few results.

I put a little cinnamon in the batch of chili I am making today. I'm glad FMB! said 1/4 tsp, because I would have way over done it otherwise. I couldn't imagine that such a little amount could be detected in a big pot of chili. I can't taste it but the odor is definitely noticeable. I'll see if the wife notices it, and whether she likes it or not.

The cinnamon should give it just a hint of sweetness, in addition to the aroma. Kicks ass, don't it? :thumb:

Yes, I noticed the sweetness. It's just a tiny bit different. More complex flavor profile. I'll have to see if I miss it when I make the next batch (I taste it about 10 times while it is cooking).

My wife said the chili was good, but she didn't notice the cinnamon.
