    I never win contests. I just don't. But last year my church sponsored a chili cook off and I thought the winners chili was just okay. So yesterday morning I find out that the next one was yesterday evening. I went to the store, bought some ingredients, and made a batch of chili.

    I won.

    My 'Hardcore Carnivore Chili' was the first place winner. I'm feeling way more smug than the actual achievement warrants. I'll probably be better in a couple of hours, but right now I'm making Peter McFerrin faces all over the house. :smug::smug::smug:

    What I want to know are the after effects of the Chili.

    Does it provide propulsion as well as odor?
    How would you describe the thickness, staying power, and spread of the "after effects"?
    Does the overall, quality of the "after effects" differ from other Chilis in terms of bouqet and ambience?
     
  5. Dammit Jive! It was a Chili Cookoff, not WMD testing :p Good odor combined with a long hang time is what I strive for.

    Congrats on the win. I never follow a recipe, I just use whatever meat I decide to go with and season to taste. I like to use Curry Powder as well as Chili Powder for a slightly different but GOOOO flavor :)
     
  6. Uh, can you guys handle that discussion via PM? I'm trying to eat my lunch here. :eyebrow:

    What about shart potential? Don't forget shart potential. The power of a shart is often under estimated with messy consequences.

    Hardcore Carnivore Chili​

    2 lb Tenderized Stew Beef
    2 lb Ground Beef
    1 lb Ground Turkey
    1 lb Chorizo
    2 1/2 cups Tomato sauce
    2 Onion; chopped
    Garlic to taste - chopped
    2 ts Salt
    2 ts Cayenne pepper
    2 ts Tabasco Sauce
    2 tb Oregano; dried, crushed
    2 tb Cumin; ground
    10 Red peppers; 2" long (opt)
    8 tb Chili powder
    2 tb Paprika
    5 tb Masa Harina Flour
    2 cans (15 oz) Black Beans, drained
    2 cans (15 oz) Cark Red Kidney Beans, drained
    1 can (32 oz) Diced Tomatoes

    OR​

    You can do the easier version and just get two packets of Wick Fowler's 2 Alarm Chili mix, plus the meats and canned things on my list.

    Start by cooking all the meats until they are pretty thoroughly browned. Drain the living hell out of the meat, because chorizo tastes great but adds a LOT of grease. Add the tomato sauce, 4 cups of water and all the spices, BUT NOT THE MASA HARINA, cover and cook for a half hour.Make a paste with the Masa Harina in warm water to thicken the chili. Add the paste, the beans and the tomatoes. Cover again. Lower heat to simmer and let it cook for at least another hour. Basically the longer it cooks, the better it will taste.
     
  9. Mmmm...chorizo! Great idea, that's going in my next batch.

  12. If you're after my approval, I'm going to need a decent-sized portion or two for proper asessment of the aforementioned qualities. :)

    +1. That's why you won too. Thanks for the recipe. Gonna try it. :hyper:
     
  15. Chorizo is magic. I put 2 or 3 sausages in my boiled peanuts. It gives them a great flavor :cool:

    Congratulations! My Corn Chowder placed 5th last week. Maybe I should look into Chorizo?
