Wazzu Tailgate Chili

Rating: 5 stars 287
This is a great and simple chili, full of flavor, and plenty of spice. It's best when refrigerated overnight and reheated before the game. One tip: season meat heavily with chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper while browning.

Hatch Chili

My Cinco de Mayo Chili

Rating: 5 stars 4
Created on Cinco de Mayo. I was in the mood to tweak.

Paleo Chili

Rating: 5 stars 165
Paleo (eating like our pre-agricultural revolution ancestors ate) chili is made without beans. In the west we typically include beans, but I think even non-paleo eaters will enjoy this deep smoky flavorful chili. This is best made a day ahead so the flavors can meld together. Serve with green onions and sour cream.

Bob's Little Known, Less Cared About Chili

Rating: 5 stars 90
Savory, smoky, easy-to-make chili. Sometimes I add a can of corn, too. Maybe have some sweet corn bread muffins with honey on the side. You could use black beans, pinto beans, pink beans, or small red beans in place of the kidney beans.

Sweet Pork Slow Cooker Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 56
This sweet and mild chili features lean ground pork with a few surprises. Serve with cheddar cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce to taste. This chili is very mild as is.

Firehouse Station 2 Healthy Chili

Rating: 5 stars 60
This is a great healthy and easy-to-make chili, made famous at Firehouse Station No. 2 in Madison, Wisconsin. Serve with corn bread johnny-cakes.

Colorado Green Chili (Chile Verde)

Rating: 4.5 stars 129
My version of my mother's green chili. I like to serve it over oven-baked burritos or with beans and rice. If you can't find a chile roaster, look for frozen diced chiles at your supermarket. You can also freeze fresh roasted chiles for off-season use.

Habanero Hellfire Chili

Rating: 4.5 stars 352
Tasty chili whose name says it all! Note: Whole Anaheim peppers are not widely available; this ingredient is optional, and you can use hot pepper sauce instead.
