    Good day for chili

    With the cooler temps today, chili seemed to be perfect food for watching the game on TV. Probably the last batch of the season.

    After using the same recipe that my dad used all my life, I'd welcome any good recipes from those on CF. The only caution is my wife can't take chili that's too hot/spicy.

    Re: Good day for chili

    I thought maybe you were making a batch to share while tailgating before the game.

    Re: Good day for chili

    I don't have any chili suggestion, but if you make chili you got have cornbread. For the best cornbread, combine a jiffy cornbread mix and a jiffy yellow cake mix. Then make sure that you combine the proper amount of ingredients for both mixes. So make sure that you use a bigger pan for the mixture.

    Corn chips and shredded cheese on top for me.

    Re: Good day for chili

    I'd love to eat some chili but I have a strict diet on gamedays to ensure I'm not spending any unnecessary time in the pooper at the HC.

    Re: Good day for chili

    I like to make a three meat chili - meats being: 1lb ground beef, a summer sausage sliced up into nickel-sized chunks, and 1/2 to a full package of bacon sliced to 1/4" strips. This is obviously not a lean, healthy chili... in case you're a health nut.

    The above combination (with all the other chili ingredients: beans, onions, tomato products) will make a full 6+ qts - so if you have a smaller crock, plan to use less.

    Also, I throw in 2 - 3 tablespoons of bbq sauce - not enough to recognize the taste or smell, but it will give it a smoky- sweet aroma (depending on type of course). I use Sweet Baby Rays.

    Re: Good day for chili

    I threw some peach salsa in my last batch because that is all the salsa I had. It made my batch a lot sweeter than I thought it would, but I actually liked it.

    I never would have thought of that, but it sounds good.

    How would that go with smoked turkey in the chili?

    Just throwing out ideas. My wife loves cooking shows, and they sometimes bring on ideas.

    Hell yes, excellent combo. Fritos (or their generic equivalent at Fareway) are the best.

    I bet it would go well with Turkey or ground meat. I made mine with sausage/hamburger. I don't think if it would go very well with steak or possibly bacon but that is my opinion.

    Peach and bacon sound horrible together to me.

    Seems like turkey will accept anything for flavor.

    Re: Good day for chili

    got to have cinnamon rolls with chili. at least my family always did.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    FIFY.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Good day for chili

    Here's what I usually make for turkey chili:

    Brown 1 lb. ground turkey in a pot with some olive oil and a large yellow onion, chopped. Add 2 cups water, a 28 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, a 16 oz. can of kidney beans, a few minced garlic cloves, 4 tbsp. chili powder (more or less depending on taste), and 1/2 tsp. each of paprika, oregano, cumin, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer for 30-45 minutes.

    It goes well with cornbread:

    Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1 cup cornmeal, 2/3 cup sugar, 1 tsp salt, and 3.5 tsp baking powder. Mix in 1 large egg, 1 cup whole milk, and 1/4 cup vegetable oil. Pour into a greased 8 inch square pan, and bake for 25-30 minutes until slightly browned on top.

    Here's the results:
