Roossy, a little ciliantro never hurt anything!

Milw, I was kinda teasin! I am bettin we never run out of things to put in chili. Oh, about a recipe for the "spam n jam". I'm not asking for the "secret dried chilis" but just a place to start.

Al, thanks for the tip about the pumkin pie spice! I'm gonna try it for my next batch of cinci chili. And right, cinci chili needs to be served in a plate so you can get the right stuff in each bite. Shaken is OK but never stirred.

Oh, a few more things I have used...... corn tortillas put in early so they dissolve, about 6 in a 3lb of meat pot of chili. Adobo seasoning, just enough to barley make a taste difference. Chopped peperoncini peppers and some of the juice.

I have occasionally used chocolate, but I don't notice that it makes a big difference in the flavor. I do use molasses, though, or, if there's no molasses handy, some dark brown sugar. Also I use beer, garlic, paprika, and I always use cubed and browned beef and pork for the meat. Just won the first competition I ever entered. OK, so it wasn't a big deal competition, it was just one at my military unit, but I *was* the only one to take home an empty pot at the end... :)

Some years ago there was an article in Esquire revealing the secret of the World's Best chili maker.

It was rosemary.

I've never tried it.

I've had ramps before; they taste like an intense garlicky onion. Probably they'd be good in moderation. No ramps in the Southwest though, so they'd be hard for me to test...go for it Field.

You would prefer Spanglish? Hokay. Adding frijoes to chili (or if you prefer, chile) is one of those issues that wars are fought over.
In Texas, chili con carne with beans ain't chili.
In most of the US, kidney beans are mandatory.
In New Mexico or Arizona, if you see beans in chile con carne, they'll probably be pintos or Anasazi beans.
Californians have been known to put garbanzos in chili.

RE: Weird things folks put in chili !^%$#@) 2006/03/23 07:32:21
And on and on goes La Guerra de las Frijoles. In competition of course beans are verboten, but they don't offend me personally for regular eatin chili, although I'm using smaller and smaller quantities all the time. (I favor Goya brands habichuela rosadas (sp?)pink beans, or good ol pintos).

The cilantro thing bothers me however. Dump it in salsa by the truck load, or on top of some good guacamole salad, but not in my chili por favor. Lots of cumin and good dash Mexican oregano near the end of the cooking time to avoid cooking away the flavor. For me personally cumin is becoming more and more the true taste of good chili.

After digging around for Shanghai Jimmy's chili rice recipe I came across the recipe he used on his "how to make good texas chili" LP record. The one not so usual ingredient was;

Lemon Juice

Lemon seems a little unusual to me, a lot of folks I know add some lime juice at the end of their cook time however. And even the no bean recipes in competition tend to get a little bean juice from the can about 10 minutes before turn in. Smooths things out and makes for a nice glossy sauce.

RE: Weird things folks put in chili !^%$#@) 2006/03/29 10:51:13
Back in the 50s I think lemons were in, and lime was not used much, like it is now. Jimmy's recipe I think said to add the lemon juice at the end.

Oh, something else different was the way he said to brown the meat, all in one peice and turn only once. Laststand, you might know how this would change things. Maybe easier to drain out most of the grease?? Jimmy's was very non greasy.

I know some of the above mention sugar; has anybody tried brown sugar? I never have; that's the reason for using tomato products as I understand it -- to slightly moderate the heat and smooth the flavors -- but I thought I'd mention it.

A local cooking expert who professes to loathe cook-offs once revealed he had participated in one using alternative ingredients intended to mimic the usual ingredients in a chili recipe and came in second in the competition. His list of ingredients included fresh ground cumin and white pepper, fenugreek, grade one paprika, lovage root, sweet white vermouth (for deglazing), tamarind nectar, ginger, allspice, and cardamom. Other, more traditional ingredients were also listed. No, this was not a Cincinnati style chili cookoff!

He didn't offer much explanation and no quantities. Ginger and clove he said are in many commercial chili powder mixes; allspice is simply a substitute for clove. Tamarind nectar was substituted for brown sugar because it has less likelihood of scorching and sticking in a big pot on a propane cooker.

I tried adding some tamarind nectar to a pot of chili once but really overdid it. I'm sure everyone knows tamarind is a prominent flavor in Worcestershire sauce. I used about half of a 12 oz. can of Jumex Tamarind Nectar and it was too much; I'll probably only use a couple of ounces, maybe only a couple of tablespoons if I ever try it again.

On the other hand, although I was disappointed in the taste of the chili fresh off the stove, chili always improves when it's reheated and I had no problem finishing off the pot over the next several days .

Hello All,
I always put brown sugar in my chili.
This weekend I made a batch that I'm still not sure if I like it...want it to age a day or so more.
I put raisins and Hokan Five Spice Powder, which has fennel seed, star anise, ginger, cloves and
cinnamon, in addition to my regular recipe.
I just keep experimenting.

my mother would cut up 2 onions, cook them with 2 lbs hamburger, drain it off.
then add 3 cans campbell's tomato soup and 3 cans dark red kidney beans with the bean juice,
heat it thoroughly and called it yankee chili. we'd eat it with buttered bread.
