Best/easiest chili recipes?
>inb4 someone posts that reddit cringe infographic
stovetop or crockpot?
beans or no beans?
Best and easiest is crushed tomatoes, chopped up chilli peppers, and whatever meat you like. Simmer it uncovered for a while until a lot of the water has evaporated from the tomato sauce
the preground shit in the packet hasn't been exposed to air like his little shakers of literaly the exact same preground shit has. So he's using less flavorful preground shit and being a smug ass about it. No one likes smug asses other than Trump.
The problem is not the combination--he's welcome to make whatever blend he likes. The problem is that he's still using shit-tier spices. He's using the cheapest supermarket crap.
He ought not to be using powdered spices at all. Use whole fresh and dried chilies instead of "chili powder". Use fresh garlic and onion instead of garlic and onion powder. If you use black pepper grind it fresh.
Nice try trying to bait us by asking about beans, everyone knows that a legitimate chilli should always contain a medium - large amount of beans (20-40%)
You can buy whole cumin seed at most supermarkets, then grind it yourself. (there's countless ways to do that: mortar and pestle, food mill, blender, those cheap electric coffee grinders)
Ok, I got a recipe for yall. It's got a decent amount of brotein from all meat/yoghurt sources. It's flavorful, and it's Mediterranean/indian influenced. I made this yesterday, pretty good. sorry for no pic, but it looks and tastes like a chilli/curry crossover
all cans are 12oz/400g
Chickpeas, beans and tomato simmer pot
1 can crushed tomato
1 can three bean mix (kidney, pinto, lima) - drained
1 can chickpeas (lightly salted) - drained
1-2 tsp whole cumin seeds
1tsp minced garlic
0.5tsp minced ginger
1tsp fennel seed (whole)
10 large fresh thai basil leaves
1 - 2 fresh jalapeños (red)
*for extra hot 1-2 fresh thai chilli peppers
3tsp of hot paprika
2tsp olive oil
1tsp honey (leatherwood works well)
In a non-stick wok or pot add olive oil and bring to a high heat. As oil gets hot, add whole cumin seeds, fennel seeds, minced garlic, minced ginger, and half of the paprika to the oil. Allow to become aromatic and fragrant, then stir. Add the crushed tomato, then drain the beans, and add them. Stir. Chop the basil leaves into thirds width-wise, and stir in. Slice the jalapeño and/or thai chilli and stir in. Add the drained chickpeas, and remaining paprika. Drizzle in the honey, and stir well.
Simmer for 5 to 8 minutes uncovered, or with a cover which allows the steam to escape. Serve with cool greek yoghurt.
You've hit up your butcher and had him grind you up some tasty sweet meats (I use turkey but beef is the typical. Once I tried lamb, super yum but expensive)
Throw in some bbq sauce of choice for some sweetness, cut up some red onions (I prefer larger chunks so they have a more specific crunch but smaller pieces kind of spread out the flavor more), smash some cloves of garlic, pepper, cayenne, cut up some chili's, nice big chunks of tomatoes (Canned is as good as cut up, although I like the tactile feel of cutting up fat tomatoes), and sometimes if I am looking for a bit more stuff I smash some red potatoes and throw it in.
Mix it into the bowl, throw it into the slow cooker, set it for a few hours (6 for me) and mmmmm mmmm it's tasty! and simple.
Yeah, this... is retarded. This is the kind of shit someone does when they think they're cool. All braggy about shit. I know a guy who just non-stop talks about his cooking like he's some kind of double-pro master chef. Frustrating cause it's just basic and.. well, it's not BAD but it's just basic. Not in that wholesome-simplicity way just in that underwhelming way. Like if you're slummin' it at Dennys cause 2am breakfast is glorious and you're reading the menu and it's like... yeah, sure Dennys, right.
yuck, so much added, unnessicary sugar. it's the only thing you can taste, along with the sourness of the vinegar.
overpowering spice. jalapeno has a warmer heat that has a wider flavor profile. even moreso is the thai chilli, if you like a bold heat, with a nice accompanying flavor you'll love thai chilli
now you're just making stew. you should go for chickpeas or more beans
such a primitive, and common recipe. try the next level of sophistication
A) I totally forgot the beans. What an oversight. Also, chickpeas? I haven't thought of that, I should try that.
B) BBQ sauce comes in many flavors and concoctions. You're foolish to think it can't be good.
C) Cayenne in a small amount adds flavor without being overpowering. I prefer it to jalapeno and, considering I am adding actual chili's, I don't think adding jalapeno powder will really be a good addition.
D) Literally for if I am looking for added stuff if this is gonna be my only meal for the day, which sometimes it is. It is not a required part of it.
It's really for convenience. I don't use it often and I don't make chili often so it's basically just sitting around. I keep it in a cool spot and hope it doesn't lose all its flavor.
