Post 'em if you got 'em boys and girls. The wife and I went through a rather disasterous home made chili experience our first year of dating, and since this is our first winter living together as a married couple we figured we might want to try again. Only with a real recipe this time. smile So let's see what everyone thinks makes for great homemade chili!

I dont have one of my own creations but I hear this one is good. Its from a guy that used our GG msg board. He's gone now but his chili stayed. BCR's Chili.....

Brian Robinson’s Award Winning Chili


2.5 pounds of ground meat
2 medium onions
4 stalks of celery
1 bell pepper
2 medium fresh tomatoes
8 ounces of mushrooms

1 can whole tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
2 cans dark kidney beans

red pepper
black pepper
chile powder

Serves approximately six people.


Dice the onions.  Chop the celery into pieces about half an inch thick.  Chop the bell pepper into pieces about one half inch square to one inch square, removing the inside of the pepper.  Slice the tomatoes, possibly cutting the slices in half if the tomato is large.  Slice the mushrooms if they do not come sliced.


Using a large frying pan, brown the meat over medium high heat, stirring often to get even cooking.  Drain excess grease.  Put the meat back into the pan and add the diced onions.  Cook a until the onions start to get transparent.  Add  the celery and cook for a few more minutes.  Finally, add the mushrooms to the pan.  At some point you may fill up your pan; if this happens simply transfer half of the contents of the pan to the pot and add the new ingredient to the leftovers.  Repeat if necessary.

In a large pot add meat and vegetable mixture from above, sliced tomatoes, canned tomatoes and seasonings.  Seasoning should be done to taste.  Start with small amounts and taste every half hour to hour.  Add more seasonings to suit your tastes.  I generally put a lot of salt and garlic powder, about half as much crushed red and black pepper, and finally half as much again chili powder.  For a stronger chili use more chili powder and pepper.  Feel free to add hot sauce if you like.
Initially you should have the chili just to the point where it is boiling.  Once you have added all the ingredients and seasoned to taste bring the chili to a temperature just below boiling.  Simmer for about 2 hours.  Stir and taste the chili frequently, making sure the taste is just right.  Always add seasonings in small increments to prevent overcompensation.

After simmering, add the kidney beans and chopped bell pepper.  Simmer for about another hour.  Keep tasting and fixing the seasonings.  Then you are done!

Serve with freshly diced onions, saltine crackers, shredded cheese, and hot dogs.
