Add another first place chili cookoff win!! I followed this recipe exactly and just won first place in a chili cookoff!! Will definitely be making this again. My DH and son went wild for it. It is somewhat laborious with the steak (which gave me the full on attention of both dogs) but it is well worth the effort!
Add a 2nd place trophy to the trophy rack Chris! In stiff competition this recipe hung in there for the red ribbon at USCG Training Center Yorktown's Annual Spring Fling Chili Cookoff. I made MINOR substitutions. I used one can of black beans and two of the kidney beans. I also added minced garlic and about 2 tsps. of paprika and a whole chopped dried ancho chili. The judges said it was close...I think I lost out to a bean-free (Texas) chili! Good recipe...will make again (and maybe win next year!)
I just finished making this chili and holy cow its fabulous. I can't wait to taste it once its had a chance to sit in the fridge and all the flavors have had a chance meld together. I will definitely make this again and spice it up a little more. At first taste its not what I consider spicy but there is a touch of heat at the end. I may update this once I've had a chance to taste the final product.
Made this for my family. Meat came out really tender and it had a really good flavor. I used franks red hot instead of texas pete. The only thing I would suggest is adding a couple of Jalapeno peppers to it. I will definitly make it again.
Wow outstanding. Won 3rd place at a chili cook off. Added sriracha at the end because I wanted a little more heat. Also make sure to brown meat in small batches or otherwise you'll be boiling it in its own juices. Thanks for the recipe Chris!
My two teen age boys ate almost all of it immediately. I fixed it in the evening so I could reheat it the next day but there wasn't much to reheat. Each added it to their favorite meals list which is a high compliment. I will absolutely make this again and possibly enter local chili contests.
Made your chili recipe with a few additions, I didn't have the onion soup mix but added a chopped onion, chopped celery and 5 chopped up garlic cloves. Used ground beef and I added a jar of medium spiced salsa and used 2 cans of mexican spiced tomatoes. I didn't have to add the tomato paste and used a package of dried red beans prepared by the package. I added about 1/2 a cup of the cocoa. Really turned out great and we had it at our usual Thursday night hot dog roast and chili. Everyone raved about the recipe. Thank you Chris.
Made this for a football game and everybody loved it! Some said it was the best chili they've ever had! The meat isn't exactly cheap but it is worth the price. Isn't very hard to make just put the ingredients into a pot and stir it a little. Definitely refrigerate over night because the meat gets more tender and soaks up the flavor. Will make again!
