Dragon’s Breath Chili = Delicious!


We never use the double-fried french fries garnish.  We just eat the chili straight up (well, with cheese).

We’ve also made it with ground turkey instead of ground beef with was also tasty (we’ve made the ground turkey standard at our house now).  We tried substituting cubes of chicken for the boneless chuck but they ended up kind of dry and tough so we stick with the chuck.

I don’t have the recipe on me, but here are the key things I put in my chili. And not brag, but I have won cook-offs before.

-sirloin steak, tomatoes, chili beans, chili bowder, crushed red pepper, celery(chopped so fine to add textue), jalpeno pepper, and dark beer.

I have been waiting for it to get cool enough for chili, I can’t wait!

hehe I made chilli on Sunday. We always make ours in the crock pot. No real set recipe. Usually 1 lb ground beef browned. Beans (we usually use red, dark red kidney beans and butter beans) and chopped up potatoe in tomato juice that was canned either by my mom or DH’s mom. This time around we put in chopped up onion and bell pepper. Then of course chili powder and little cajun seasoning.

I love chili, but can get pretty lazy when it comes to making it. The really really good kinds just requires so much… stuff. 

For “lazy” but good chili, I honestly like the recipe on the back of the McCormick hot chili seasoning packet. Brown up your meat (I season that with salt, pepper, garlic, onion powder, and a chipotle pepper blend from New Mexico), then throw in a can of tomato sauce, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of kidney beans, and the packet of chili seasoning. It’s fast and it actually does make a pretty good chili.

This is my MIL’s recipe. I LOVE it. We make it all the time in the winter or cold rainy summer days. I think it’s the cinnamon in it that really makes it good.

Brown ground beef (1.5 lbs)
Once browned, add to crock pot along with the following ingredients…
Onions (however much you want)
Garlic (however much you want)
Sliced mushrooms (we use canned)
28 oz can of diced tomatoes
14 oz can of Red Kidney Beans
Couple cans of pork n’ beas (3 approx)
1 tbls of Chilli powder
1 tsp of Cinnamon
Gently stir it all up

Simmer all day in crock pot all day.

@ohheavenlyday: That’s my favorite lazy chili, as well. I always chop up garlic, bell peppers, jalepenos, and onions and add them, too. It’s not the same without them. 

For a super quick dinner thats pretty healthy, I also like McCormick’s white chicken chili. It’s a favorite this time of year since it takes like 10 minutes.

After reading this post I now feel like I have to have chili today!! Darling Husband is going to think I’m crazy because it’s supposed to be 100 degrees but chili sounds soooo good.
