I make some kick ass beanless pork chili. I'll also do a traditional texas-style chili with beans and ground beef.

My idea of real chili is a spicy style with some beans, (not too much, maybe 1 cup per half-gallon) with a tomato base, chopped white onion, slow roasted beef cubes and diced red pepper. Put that bitch on the stove, low heat for 4 hours.

Meh, you know what I mean. The every-day bull-shit Chili that you can get anywhere.

I have to say that I like the slow-cooked mexican style pork chili the best. (W/O beans)
There's a little shit-hole mexican restaurant in south Omaha, (aka Little Mexico) that's only open 4 days a week called Nettie's. They make one pot of this stuff a week and when it's gone, your screwed.
It will definitely make you sweat. When Lumpy was 9 months pregnant, I took her there and fed her a bowl of that stuff to get her to go into labor.

Traditional Texas style chili is a beanless, meat based chili called "Texas Red."

I'm sure you meant to say that you do a traditional Arizona style chili with beans and ground beef.

I've got a couple of different chili recipes that I like to use.

My favorite is the Goat Head #15 which I end up at the chinese specialty food store for "specific" ingredients.

I'll also do a cajun chili with alligator and andouille sausage.

Chili is one of those things that is really fun to play around with. A traditional, wholly American dish that you can take a lot of different places.

When I make real chili I start off with a New Mexico red chili sauce, also called chili Colorado.

http://i42.tinypic.com/24briqb.jpg


After the sauce is right I cook onion and garlic, beef or pork and add seasonings.

But my true favorite is green chile stew.

Thats alot like what happened to me this year as well, the bitch used a cookie cutter taco soup recipe, used Chicken instead of beef, a chilli spice packet instead of a taco spice packet. A bunch of canned shit was all. Had I lost to some of the good recipes it would not have bothered me. I thought some of the other pots were damn good but the one that won was lame. Another case of Judge fail. Probably a bunch of balless red meat haters.

I was making a pot of chili a while back and while it was cooking I thought I'd do a little research on it. I found it interesting how the cooks who worked the cattle drives would plant small gardens of herbs and spices along the trail so they'd always be available for use. I also thought the chili wagons the women would pull in the square down in San Antonio was pretty cool. Gave me an idea for a business.

Down here(Springfield) we have things like the Taco Wagon to eat at. They have a small trailer they tow behind a car. They find a location and set up and do business. There's also the BBQ Bus. That things scares me because it looks like the smoker is sitting right above the gas tank. :eek: There's also more then those two around. Anyways I thought I could do the same thing with chili.

I think he's talking about the chunks of meat, which I don't do. My chili is at least a 24 hour process and all chunks are rendered down by the end. I just wanted to find a picture to demonstrate something besides ground beef.

hometeam
02-26-2012, 11:13 AM
I agree, if the chunks are that big it has not been cooked long enough. When you are using steak/triptip etc, once all is said and done, it should be the same consistency as if you where using hamburger.

Real chili needs some serious heat. If you are not bending the towel rack into the shape of a horseshoe, while sitting on the thunder cup the next morning, you're doing it wrong.

RJ
02-26-2012, 11:21 AM
I usually dice the meat smaller than that picture but I still wouldn't call that a stew. But when I'm making "real" chili I do not use ground beef or beans. My ingredients are pretty much.....

Red chili pods
Onion
Garlic
Beef or pork
Broth or beer
Tomato sauce (not much)
Chili powder
Cumin
Oregano
S&P

None of which is to say that I don't like a chili with ground beef and beans and whatever else. Just I don't think of it as "real".

I don't put beans in my chili. I like it 50/50 with ground beef and ground turkey. Use Williams or Four Alarm powder for a base, add a little tomato sauce, cumin, rotel, sweet mustard, minced garlic, shot of tabasco. If I'm making chili for chili dogs, instead of tomato sauce I use Chili sauce. It thickens up the mix and makes it stick to the dog better.

For my my chili is usually different every time I make. The only constant is it goes into the crock pot over night. Ingredients vary depending on what the produce looks like at the time and what I have to make on hand. I like it hot enough that when you finish the bowl you have to wipe your fore head after you are done.
