Need Awesome Chili Recipe

  • 7

So I did a search here on CH and didn't really find anything. Maybe I'm a tard, so forgive me if you have read the chili recipe quest a million times. I am going to a chili cook out on Saturday and need an awesome recipe. To be honest, I don't eat chili and have never made it, but want to give it a shot. Something somewhat simple though. Also, I am open to using ground turkey. Thanks!

    See the recipe in the comments for a prize winning chili and lose the unfortunate reference in your second sentence.

        but not simple



        1. I'm dying to make this......sounds delicious and fairly simple. And so timely!

          OBAMA FAMILY CHILI serves 6

          1 large onion, chopped
          1 green pepper, chopped
          Several cloves of garlic, chopped
          1 tablespoon olive oil
          1 pound ground turkey or beef
          1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
          1/4 teaspoon ground oregano
          1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
          1/4 teaspoon ground basil
          1 tablespoon chili powder
          3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
          Several tomatoes, depending on size, chopped
          1 can red kidney beans

          Saute onions, green pepper and garlic in olive oil until soft.
          Add ground meat and brown.

          Combine spices together into a mixture, then add to ground meat.
          Add red wine vinegar.

          Add tomatoes and let simmer, until tomatoes cook down.

          Add kidney beans and cook for a few more minutes. Serve over white or brown rice. Garnish with grated cheddar cheese, onions and sour cream.

            1. "Awesome" chili and ground turkey are mutually exclusive in my opinion. This recipe does contain beans, though. Check it out.

                Both the chile pepper and the turkey are native to Mexico(&and of course the 'Merican southwest) Mexican Spanish still uses the old Aztec word for turkey, Xatalote(sp?) instead of the modern Spanish pavo. The national dish of Mexico is Xatalote Mole, turkey mole. Me, on the other hand, I don't like turkey in chile either. Gimme pig!
