This is my momma's recipe that we love. It is not hot so we will have to add some heat to it

1 lb ground beef
1 med onion
1tsp each salt, pepper, garlic powder
2 15oz cans tom sauce
1 16 oz can chili beans
2 tbsp chili powder

brown your meat onion, salt pepper,garlic powder, drain add rest.

This is a very good simple mild recipe. You can add heat and be sure to adjust to your liking

Here is a recent thread with some great suggestions...

These use brisket but you can substitute any meat.

BTW, there is a Google search box near the bottom of every page that searches just this site. :-D

if you want something a little different, my chicken (or turkey) and chorizo chili is always a crowd pleaser. Post #12 here:

I don't know how much you can rely on prepared powders......but.....I really liked the last batch I made using Cimarron Doc's Chili mix. I made the pot just like the recipe on the label.

I used 1/2 ground and 1/2 stew beef.

I browned the ground and onions, mixed the other ingredients in, then transferred it to the croc pot and added the raw stew beef. Simmered all day.

My family loved it.

My next batch will be done all on the grill in a cast iron pot. Leaving it in there at low temp simmering all day at low temps gaining the smoke flavor.

Good luck. Gotta love a great pot of chili.

I don't have a full recipe to share...I sort of just throw stuff together.

What I can say is that WITHOUT A DOUBT whenever I make chili with leftover smoked brisket everyone loves it. I have gone as far as smoking a flat just to make a couple batches of chili.

Down here we just pick up what's fresh off the road for meat lol

Each region has different ideas of what chili should be. Texas, for example, is pretty well a no beans included state. What type of chili are people looking for in your area?

Here are the winning recipes for the International Chili Society Cookoff series. (They do not permit beans in the chili.) You will find some great ideas such as adding beef broth and using several dumps of spices during the cook. is a great online resource for special ingredients.

I just looked through the link Ron L. posted. The ICS link is in it. Oh well.

Beans are a Yankee embellishment.

No request for chili recipe help has been completely responded to without a link to this classic chili cookoff story which is a sticky in the joke section here.

I have to admit I cheat. McCormicks tex mex mix, any kind of smoked meat leftovers beside fish, Rotel hot tomatoes, and ground habanero or bird peppers. You can get as much heat as you want and yes I do use beans.

Has any of y'all tried any chilli spices from
I seen "hesmellslikesmoke" mentioned the link
