Lately I have been trying to get away from boxed dinners and frozen, microwavable bullshit and have really been trying to learn to cook properly. Most recently I've been fucking around with different chili recipes and experimenting to see what I can come up on my own. The latest thing I've made is a really simple and easy chili recipe that is a modification of another recipe I found: 1 lb ground beef 1 14 oz can diced tomatoes 1 can dark red kidney beans 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder 1/2 tablespoon creole seasoning 2/3 cup Worcestershire sauce 2/3 cup Bullseye Sweet & Tangy BBQ sauce Brown the beef. Drain and put it in a pot. Add in all other ingredients and stir. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Voila. Quick and easy chili. The obvious outlier here is the BBQ sauce. Personally, I think it adds a pretty interesting element to things. If you overdo it (as I did, when I used 1/2 cup the first time around) then it's a bit overpowering, but in the right amount I like the effect. Personally, I love chili. But like with most dishes, some is good, some is not so good. I've had chili that's rather bland and other chili that just blew me away with flavor. So does anybody here have any chili recipes they would like to share? Or any general ideas on what things make good chili good and sets it apart from lesser versions?
