If you eat meat I do. If not, use TVP instead I guess. I don't use recipes at all but here are what I put in chili. The key is tequila. You can buy the low proof stuff at the grocery store, I live in Ohio, U.S. but whatever you can get. Seriously that is the key though. All of these amounts are general since I never measure. 1 1/2 pounds gr. beef-turkey-or tvp, red, yellow and green bell pepper, jalapeno, yellow onion, red onion, garlic. Saute meat than add peppers and onion to saute. Add cumin, chili powder, cayenne pepper, salt and white and fresh ground pepper. Add large can of whole stewed tomatos, chicken broth and tomato sauce, pinto beans, dark kidney beans, light kidney beans or any combo of 3 cans of beans that you would like. Then add a half of a bottle of low proof tequila. The alcohol will cook off and even though I hate tequila it adds an awesome flavor to the recipe. I don't think I forgot anything but play with these basics.

We use Barley in our Chili. Becuase TVP is the most processed veggie food around. Think plastic. Well we use Kidney beans and black beans. Big can of Crushed tomatoes, cumin and CHOCOLATE. This is our key ingrediant. Yum. I am sorry I dont have a "reciepe" we just throw it togther.<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/Rainbow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rainbow peace"><br>

Do you like white chili? This recipe is delicious.<br><br>
3 lb. chicken<br>
3 tbsp oil<br>
1 small onion diced<br>
2 cans great northern beans<br>
30 oz. chicken broth<br>
10 oz. green chilis<br>
2 cans cream of chicken soup<br>
salt<br>
pepper<br>
garlic powder<br>
cilantro<br>
tortillas<br>
sour cream<br>
mozzarella cheese<br><br>
cut chicken into small bits and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Saute in oil. add other ingredients and boil. simmer for 30-60 minutes.<br><br>
to serve, cut tortillas into strips and pour chili over it. Garnish with sour cream and cilantro and cheese.<br><br>
I improvise with this recipe all the time. I use any chicken parts I have, real garlic instead of powder, organic cheeses. It takes adjustments very well and is great on cold, windy nights.

I made a delicious lentil chili last week<br><br>
Let's see... saute onion, garlic, and green pepper in a frying pan, meanwhile, put lentils, a can of crushed tomatoes, apple juice, a tiny amount of molasses, and chili powder in the crock pot, add the sauteed stuff and cook on high for a few hours. Oh, and there was water in there too since I used dry lentils.<br><br>
If you'd rather not use a crock pot, you could probably sautee the veggies in the bottom of a large pot, then add the other ingredients and lower the heat.

Chili sounds so good. It's 17 F out today and my bones are cold. I think I'll make some tomorrow in the mean time I needed a good recipe too!
