Top Chilli tips?

Postby ChrisinHove » Sun Feb 03, 2019 11:19 am

Slicing up the onions, peppers, garlic, chilli peppers with my K12P this evening it struck me that there might be a few chilli wizards here.

Any good tips?

This is one of my favorite recipes for chili, it's really simple too. It's designed around a low carb diet so no pasta or beans but you can add those if you choose.

Yum. I love chili. I have to say, HORMEL makes a very good canned chili.

Anyone else use cinnamon in their chili?

My favorite recipe calls for cinnamon and uses cubes of roast or stew meat, rather than ground beef.

I also have some (blasphemy, I know) vegan chili a while back that was really good. I'll have to see if I can find that recipe.

I do an awesome venison Chili. Takes me around 4 hours to make it and cook it.
Can you find it and can it cut? :eek:

Ah vegan chili, you mean "vegetable soup" lol.

Apparently Cincinnati style chili (Skyline, Gold Star) has cinnamon in it. I've heard people say they can't stand it for that reason and it's all they taste but I grew up with it and really don't taste the cinnamon apart from the chili itself. Maybe I'm just used to it. I've never tried adding it to my own chili but I think I will. My wife makes amazing chili and I don't know how she does it because most people talk about simmering for hours etc but she can whip up a pot of really good chili in a half hour.

Cayenne and black pepper, onion, garlic, ground chuck or ground round, jalepeno pepper, tomatoes, tomato sauce (some like to use Rotel), cumin, chili powder, paprika, red beans (non-sweet) and/or black beans. Add a some Tennessee Pride Hot breakfast sausage and bacon for a kick.

I cook a fair amount of chilli and my taste is as follows:

1. Pork mince gives a better flavour than beef mince.
2. Always use fresh chilli and dried chillies to balance heat with fruitiness. If you can find Chipotle paste then get some as it adds flavour and depth
3. You can't add too much cumin. You can add too much oregano and chilli powder, both of which get stronger with longer cooking.
4. Add the beans last, preferably in the last hour of cooking.
5. Slow cooking for 4 hours or more is a must.
6. Drying your chilli for 30 minutes in the oven, open topped at 70oC before serving makes for a creamier texture.

I'm thinking that it might be possible to add too much cumin. Just saying. Image

I've not managed yet. I guess my tastebuds are atrophied :D
