I put beans in my chili guess I haven't heard that about my Texas chili. No one has ever complained about my chili except make more next time. LOL

Ok for a true bowl of Texas Red I use this recipe and make variations of it. It's called Bad Attitude Chili from a BBQ and/or chilehead list I was on in the last century.
  • 2 lbs pork roast -- cut into 1" pieces
  • 2 lbs cheap ground beef -- (You'll need the fat. This isn't health food.)
  • 1/2 cup GOOD chile powder -- (Your local supermarket brand tastes like cardboard.)
  • 1 HUGE onion -- roughly chopped
  • 1 head garlic -- minced
  • 8 New Mexican green chiles -- roasted, peeled, seeded, chopped.
  • 1 Tbl hot Hungarian paprika -- (This is legal. Paprika is a chile.)
  • 1 Tbl ground cumin
  • 4 beef bouillon cubes
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes -- (Don't worry. You won't even know they are there.)
  • 1 bottle amber Mexican beer -- (Dos Equiis, Noche Buena, or any Oktoberfest will do.)
  • 1/4 cup bourbon -- (This is one of those things that just happened.)
  • 2 squares bitter baker's chocolate -- (Not as weird as it sounds.)
  • salt to taste

Saute 1/4 of the garlic and onions until translucent.
Add 1/4 of the meat, chile powder and brown.
Salt the meat while cooking. Put into your chili pot. Cast iron is best.
Repeat until all the meat is done.
Put the rest of the ingredients in your chili pot and simmer for an hour.
As in any recipe, the amount of ingredients is variable. Add more of anything you want, especially chiles.

Most of the time I use Penzeys chili seasoning and canned Hatch diced green chiles. It's a lot of labor to peel those things and I like a lot in mine.

Awesome recipe! I would just add black beans, LOL!!!

In all seriousness, this recipe is inspiring me to make a few mods to my own :thumbup:

At the end of the page I linked it says:

"To bean or not to bean? That is the question for people that like to discuss things like the meaning of life. Or how many angels can do the Cotton Eyed Joe on the head of a pin. Or is there a limit to Deion $anders' ego. If you are going to bean, pintos and black are good. Kidney beans are a sin."

i don't bean but I don't look down at those that do, I just avoid the downwind side of those that do!

I get a lot of comments about tasting chocolate in it, i never do but some folks do. As most chili and stews go, the longer it simmers the better it gets!

Haha! Beans or no beans, there will be gas, lol! But I'm glad to know that since I do use beans, that at least black beans are acceptable

I still say use whatever floats your boat and when it comes to chili, you very well might be able to, hehehe

Can't wait to try out the chocolate idea
