hi all..this cold weather approaching in the northeast makes for the perfect night for chili.
have to admit I have been lazy and make mine as follows
- 90% lean ground hormone free sirloin
- can of hunts tomato sauce
- el paso chili mix
- red pepper chopped
- can kidney beans
- small red onion

Takes less than 40 minutes and tasty...anyone have any suggestions? I sometimes even add cinammon

Close to mine, but I always add a can of petite diced canned tomatoes and I use pinto beans. My son likes for me to add a small can of whole kernal corn too.

Shen, good advice from Dreamz. We have a great chili section here at roadfood. The "sticky" recipe thread and many others are awsome. If you want to get adventuresome, check out the "weird things" chili thread.

My input here is Rotel tomatoes. They even make a mild version for those who don't want things to spicy.

Sassy, one of my grandsons loves corn in chili. I cook some corn seperatly and let him add to taste in his bowl. He ends up with chili flovored corn many times.

Does anyone in the road food world know how a "civilian" can buy Kuhn's chili? That's the incendiary stuff served at Dexter's and Danny's in Connecticut. I need a fix now!

Try googling for it.
Also Amazon.com has a gourmet food section where I find product.
Good luck

Kuhn's is served at Danny's and Dexter's in Connecticut--I don't know if it comes in a can. That's what I'm trying to find out. As described in the review, it is "alarmingly" hot. I've searched all over the Web and have come up with nothing.

CJD, how did they let customers know it's Kuhn's? Could it be like Waffle House chili. It has some guys name on the menue but they cook it on site. My hobby is diging up old chili recipes so this should be fun!

CDJ, well, almost easy. Keith Kuhn makes this chili, just in small batches, with maybe home grown peppers. I learned this from a roadfood thread! Do a google for..."kuhn's chili" recipe... and you can find some stuff. Sounds like the recipe is a secret though. Maybe Keith will give it to you? Hmmm, probably not. Maybe up to you to make a copycat recipe CDJ?

Joe--thanks for the info. On another thread I learned that there may be a hot dog cart near SDW in Fairfield that serves Kuhn's. I'll stop by there and check it out. Dexter's, which is closed for the winter, brags/warns on the menu that they use Kuhn's chili.
