Even though I'm a Texan and adamantly opposed to beans in chili ;) I will definitely give this recipe a shot!
One thing I discovered that's good in chili is (believe it or not, it sounds pretty weird at first) is coconut. I cooked chili for some friends at my house and a friend brought over coconut and I said "you're not putting that in my chili", he said "just try it".
Well I did and I'll never eat chili without it now. Give it a shot.
I can't wait to try your recipe. Thanks for sharing.


You don't put cumin in ?


I'm impressed. I made chili this morning. here's my recipe:
1 large can of pinto beans
2 small cans of kideny beans
1 can tomato paste
1 can tomato sauce
1 jar pace picante salsa
1.5 pound ground beef
chili powder
in the crock pot.
the end. hehe.


so how did you place?


yay Ro-Tel! a Texan co-worker of mine recently introduced me to Ro-Tel, and boy does it ever help with making any kind of Southwestern style food. I love it.

You forgot the cumin -- it's just not chili without the cumin!

All you cumin-heads: Chili power has ample cumin in it. Do you really recommend that I add more?


What, no bourbon? :D Dan makes chili with no beans (boo!) and buys a can of beans so I can mix some into mine. His chili is fantastic - try a splash of bourbon sometime!

For my personal taste, I always use chili powder AND cumin -- I just don't think you get enough of the smoky flavor of the cumin in chili powder alone -- but that's just me!

Yum, yum that looks good, I'm going to have to try your recipe 'cus I don't have one of my own. And now I really want chili.
