Anyone have a good chili recipe they can share? My husband LOVES chili, and since i don't, i do not know a good recipe. All the recipes i have found are for the cans of beans - and i have loads of bags of dried beans on hand. Please help fatten up my husband! LOL

If you soak the beans, you use them the same as canned beans.

i know that.. but what i do not know is much much of my beans equals 1 can. Recipes call for like a 15 ounce can... but since they are already pre-soaked i am not sure the weight of my bag of beans would equal that (if what i said just made sense)

Just eyeball an equal volume. 1 can is about 1 1/2 cups of beans.
It's chili fer gawd's sake. Ya don't really have ta measure nuthin.

Here Thena, try this:

Bean Arithmetic...

1 cup dry navy beans equals about 3 cups cooked.
1 pound of dry navy beans equals about 2 cups raw or 6 cups cooked.
1 can (15˝ oz.) beans equals 1 2/3 cups of cooked beans.
1 can (1 lb. 11 oz.) beans equals 2˝ cups cooked beans.
1 can (l lb. 14 oz.) beans equals 3 cups cooked beans.
In recipes, use 2˝ cups of canned beans for each cup of dry beans called for.

Although, I have to agree with Festus---just cook some up and add however many you want in. I never was one for recipes---can't follow directions! I just wing it.

Agreed! I once tried to enter a chili cook-off. The only problem was you had to have the recipe written out. Can't do that when you don't have one! I tried to measure as I was making it. Didn't work out so well.....

Throw in a cuple cans of maters with those beans and some ground beef with sauted peppers, onions, celery, garlic clove and a pack of good old chilo seasoning let it simmer. If you want it thicker not runny add a tomato paste or a tomato soup cook a bit longer and it's yummy.

New ideas! I've never used celery, chili seasoning (unless you mean chili powder), tomato paste or soup. Interesting. I can tell you that you can get that "day old is always better" taste just by completely, (and I mean completely)cooling it and then reheating it.

Now Festus, you know I'm always afraid to open yer links! You scared me to death with the skinned cat, whiskers intact, remember? Had nightmares for a week. I don't usually do well with recipes as I have had many difficulties throughout my life following directions, but I will take a chance and check it out.

Do you drain canned beans or not ???

Other than the traditional red kidney bean, what other bean do you use ?

Does anyone make chili with ground turkey or chicken ?

Quite a few years ago, I read in Heloise, that if you drained the beans, you'd have less gas. Really! I did read that. Sometimes I buy the chili beans with seasoning in them. I don't drain them. If I use just regular kidney beans, I drain & rinse them. My hubby swears it works.

Nope not chili powder. Chili seasoning is in a package by McCormick's I think it is called, Chili~o It comes in three different strengths mild, medium, or hot. They also have generic packages that are almost as good. The paste or soup gives it a creamy texture and is so good. The celery just is an added goody, I use 2 or 3 large stalks chopped up small.

I use Mexican style stewed tomatoes, mexican style chili beans and my favorite salsa along with leftover steak cubed instead of hamburger. If you have a really good tasting salsa, you dont need any powdered seasoning.

Or freeze it in smaller portions or share with a friend. Even better...get together with a couple of friends...each making one communal type dish, chili, stew, soup, goulash, etc. and share them out in portions...you only cook once but you each get several nights of meals out of the endeavor!

Gotta have minced garlic and green peppers too. I must make a large batch. I usually use about 4 of the large cans of diced tomatoes(if I don't have fressh out of my garden) & I make a 'meaty' chili, so it's thick. I also add a few shakes of the dried red pepper, & sometimes jalapenos. I probably could never make it taste the same twice.

I found left over chili is good mixed with pasta, or served over rice for a leftover meal. Another treat, is hot homemade corn bread with chili served over the top.

i didn't know you could freeze chili. do you freeze it all made with the beans in it? i will have to try this because i don't know how to make just a little chili when i make it. it is always enough for an army.
i couldn't do it for breakfast though.

Chili, burrito's and pizza are some of the favorites that I like to keep on hand in the freezer. I double wrap them in individual portions so they can go right to the microwave. Give it a try, nothing better than a big pot of chili on the stove and then enjoying it again a week or two later.

I've found cans of Chili Beans at Save a Lot (for about 29 cents a can!) They work great in Chili! I use my 16 quart roasting pan to cook a large batch of chili then can most of it up for later. I think canning might make it taste a little bit better than freezing.Tomatoes tend to separate when frozen. It also heats up much more quickly, great for a quick lunch.

Yesterday at the Native American drum circle Lo is is training into, after the practice they had potluck with a buffalo meat chili. Now that was a chili you couldn't miss. Incredible flavor and not too heavy on the beans either.
I really need her recipe!

Chili

A young cowboy walks into a seedy cafe in Fort
Pierre, South Dakota.

He sits at the counter and notices an old cowboy with his arms
folded staring blankly at a full bowl of chili.

After fifteen minutes of just sitting there
staring at it, the cowboy bravely asks the old cowpoke, "If you
ain't gonna eat that, mind if I do?

The older cowboy slowly turns his head toward the
young wrangler and in his best cowboy manner says, "Nah, go ahead."

Eagerly, the young cowboy reaches over and slides
the bowl over to his place and starts spooning it in with delight.

He gets almost down to the bottom and notices a dead mouse in the chili.

The sight was shocking, and he immediately pukes up the chili, back into the bowl.

The old cowboy quietly says, "Yep, that's as far
as I got, too."

Freeze it! I made chili this weekend, too. Needed it for a hotdog fest (what's a good hotdog w/o chili??) but I had so much left...I just packed it into some single serve containers and froze it.

I am always amazed how a batch of chili intended to feed 6-8 people can end up filling a 50 gallon drum.

2 lbs beef stew meat
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 3/4 cups water or beer (I always prefer beer - the alcohol cooks out)
5 dried habaneros
1 ancho
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 onion
1 Tbsp flour
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
Cut meat into bite size pieces. Brown in the vegetable oil. Add water. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Put all the chiles in a small saucepan. Add water to cover. Cover and bring to boil. Remove from heat and let stand until the chiles are softened (approx one hour). Drain the water. Remove stems and seeds (of course leave seed for more heat). Put chiles in blender along with 1/2 cup of the cooking broth. Puree. Strain the puree through a sieve. Add the puree to the meat and broth. Mince the garlic (whichever method you prefer). Chop the onion. Saute together until onion is clear, not browned. Add flour, stir and cook for about one minute more. Add onion mixture, oregano and cumin to meat. Cover and simmer 1 1/2 hours. Taste and adjust seasonings.
