For a twist, throw a pound of Tennessee Pride hot sausage in with the ground beef

Mince finely 3 cloves of garlic and sautee with one chopped onion and half a green bell pepper (chopped) in bacon grease for about a minute. Add 2 lbs. of lean ground beef. Cook until beef is browned, drain off fat. Throw this into a crockpot. If you don't have a crockpot, put it into a big pot on the stove. Add 3 cans of the regular size (11 oz?) Bush's hot chili beans. Add 3 regular cans of diced tomatoes (or I prefer about slighty over a quart of homemade canned tomatoes), stirring all the while. Add about 3 tbsp. of chili powder, I'm not particular, you can get the stuff at Dollar General for 50 cents a small jar. Mexene is my favorite chili powder, but it's more expensive. Add about a tsp. of ground cumin, a tsp. of salt, a tsp. of paprika, and about a half pint of beer, continue stirring. If you like it hot, add either ground cayenne pepper or throw in some fresh or pickled minced jalapeno, deseeded. You can substitute fresh jalapenos, or even serranos. Serranos are a little hotter, and look like a jalapeno that's been deflated. If this stuff's too thick, add water or a combo of water and tomato juice as desired. If you're cooking it on the stove in a pot, bring to a boil for about 3 minutes, then turn heat down to simmer. Simmer for at least 3 hours, stirring frequently. If it's in a crockpot, start it early in the morning and let it go all day and eat it for supper.



I've seen people try to make chili in half an hour from scratch, but it needs to cook at least 3 hours minimum on the stove or 8 hours in a crockpot. It's even better if you let the stuff cool off and refrigerate it, then cook it another hour or two the next day-even longer, watching to make sure you get the right thickness. I've also seen people put so much beer in it, it overpowers everything else. One more thing, it's better to let your beer go flat first, don't ask why, I don't know. I've also heard if you're making beer battered fish, use flat beer.



Another thing, you can mix 1 lb. of ground venison and 1 lb. of ground beef instead of pure ground beef. It's a little less fat. If you spice it up enough, I've even heard ground armadillo meat will work. Oh well, one man's chili might be another man's axle grease.
