    Default Good, but simple chili recipe

    Going camping over the weekend. Im taking my big dutch oven and would like to put a pot of chili over the camp fire. I have a couple of recipes that are ok, but I would like to try a different one. If you have a good recipe to share I would love to try it. But since where I'm going is totally primitive, I would need an easy recipe, since I wont have the convenience of a kitchen.

    My Go to chili recipe is pretty simple and very good.

    Blu's Hill Country Chili

    2 tbl gebharts chili powder
    1 can progresso black bean & jalapeno soup
    1 can rotell
    1 8 oz can tomato sauce
    2 fresh jalepenos
    1 serrano pepper
    1/2 med onion diced
    2 cloves garlic pressed
    10 tortilla chips pulverized
    1 1/2 lb chili grind ground chuck
    8 oz water
    1/4 piece of mexican chocolate
    salt & pepper to taste

    Dice up all the veg if you like it hot leave the seeds and the veins in the peppers.
    Brown the meat with the vegies and drain off the fat.
    add the chili powder and cook for 2-3 min. add all the can stuff fill the tomato can with water to rinse the can and use it to rinse the other cans then add it to the pot. Simmer for 1 hr. add the pulverized tortilla chips and the mex chocolate simmer 15 min season with salt & pepper to taste.

    if you want a traditional bowl of tx red dice up 1.5 lb of top round into 1/2'' pieces and brown in a little canola oil add the chili powder and coook for 3 min
    dump all the cans in a blender and puree along with the vegies. and add to the pot then continue with the recipe as above.

    I wouldn't be too quick to write off the Williams recipe. It is a good basis and you can do a few things to dress it up if you like.

    williams Chili powder seasoning is q whole different thing that the other "chili powders"

    You can add chilis if you like, or chorizo. For good chili, you just need a good seasoning base and the rest is easy.

    sorry you didn't like my response, but you did say oyu wanted an easy recipe. Just how easy do you want it?

    Bludog, thanks, that sounds like a good one. SmokieOkie, I didnt say I didnt like it, as a matter of fact that is the chili mix my wife uses. I was just looking for something more "homemade" than a mix. But, you do make a good point that I didnt think of, I could use the mix as a base and add to it. I'm getting to the age that sometimes my brain is about 2 steps behind everything else!

    If you want to buy the separate chilis and seasonings that go into the Williams product, buy Ancho, Chimayo, or NM chili, Guajillo, Cumin and garlic and go from there, but why go out and buy all those different chilis, seed and grind them , and then blend them when the good folks at Williams have already done that?

    Williams is always a good way to go, we prefer it as the "go to".
    They make it about 5 miles west of here.
