Chili con carne is one of my favorite recipes. I usually make my chili without the beans, but I like it either way.I hope you give this chili con carne recipe a try.
This is my Red Chili Recipe. I like a more red chili pepper based chili as opposed to a tomato based chili.
My ingredients were
6 pound chuck roast (any meat can be substituted)
3 poblano peppers
2 habanero peppers
5 jajapeno peppers
1 white and 1 red onion (substitute any onions)
5 roma tomatoes (any tomato can be substituted to taste)
cilantro (to taste) I uses about 1/4 cup or so
chili powder unsweetened 2 1/2 tbs (this is the key I think)
salt to taste
Just under 1/3 cup oregano
Red chili powder (about 1/2 cup)
cumin (about 4 tbs)
5 cloves garlic (or to taste)
2 beef bullion cubes
splash of chicken powder (or to taste)
1/3 cup brown sugar
Water to cover 1/4 inch above ingredients

These are the ingredients. This is a recipe to make your own. I roasted my poblano peppers, jalapeno peppers, tomatoes and tomatoes. I then blended them in a food processor, a blender will be equally as good. In the meantime I browned my meat and added the dry ingredients.
I then added the ingredients that I blended, and added the water. I cooked for a little over 2 hours (this doesn’t need to be specific) I then added the garlic and dark chocolate. Then cooked for another hour. Then I finished with the white beans and cilantro….This is a recipe to make your own. This is only a guide to get you close. I really believe the dark chocolate is the ingredient that takes it over the top. I wish I could be more specific, but this is a recipe so personal that you need to tailor it to your taste. Thanks for watching.

Chili con carne, commonly known in American English as simply “chili”, is a spicy stew containing chili peppers, meat (usually beef), and often tomatoes and beans. Other seasonings may include garlic, onions, and cumin. Geographic and personal tastes involve different types of meat and ingredients. Recipes provoke disputes among aficionados, some of whom insist that the word “chili” applies only to the basic dish, without beans and tomatoes. Chili con carne is a frequent dish for cook-offs and is used as an ingredient in other dishes.

MrMegaFredZeppelin says:

Glen The Bald Chef RULES!!!!!! Habanero peppers RULE!!!!!! Lyle RULES!!!!!! Dark chocolate ? I'm game count me in :) That chili looks Damn excellent :) Right into my CULINARY playlist. Have a great weekend. ROCK ON!!!!!!!!

Headchefmom Kendall Lawrence says:

Great looking chili! I have never seen chili made with this much detail. You upped the chili game big time! Never thought of chili without tomatoes either. This is a must try.

The Bald Chef says:

Lyle, you may not know that me and my daughter have competed in many chili cook off's.I am in fact a card-carrying ICS International Chili Society member.we have over the last nine years competed in many chili cook offs to raise money for the National Kidney Association. One of the main rules in these cook offs have is no beans or pasta in your chili. Your plug on my channel was appreciated, but this is not competition chili, simply comfort food I made. The point is the 2015 winner utilized many of the techniques that you showcased in your recipe.Cocoa powder in chili are you kidding me, this is pure genius, Mexican's have been using this ingredient for many generations. I think, this would add a unique flavor to the chili, though I've never experienced it myself I really like the idea.Lyle, your list of ingredients are quite impressive from the cilantro, onion, Mexican oregano etc. Fire roasting chilies certainly brings out a smoky flavor, and no way would  ground beef win any chili cook off, you used great meat  in your recipe. I like a little bit of tomato in my chili, but you rolled with the chili base. It would probably surprise many viewers on the amount of chili powder you put in to your recipe. I watched watched how you did yours, and it really requires the amount of chili powder that you used.Most importantly you layered your spices in various dumps, this is key to great chili.You put up a great chili recipe that you should be proud of, Nice job!

grussem says:

Looks great bro! How many pounds of beef was it you had in your recipe (if you remember)?  I have some leftover smoked brisket I want to make a Texas style chili with.  I like the idea of adding the cocoa!  I just put a video out on BGE maintenance.  I have another video I'm currently editing…. look for a shout out on the second video.

Rivet Gardener says:

Hey you have got that right, the Latin markets are the place for quality lo price ingredients. Mexican oregano is much more flavorful than the Mediterranean one, and especially perfect in chili! Nice browning of the chuck first with the spices to get them to release all their flavors and oils. And of course you have hit on the secret to great chili, with that unsweetened chocolate, Lyle. Good to go! Delicious looking chili you made and certainly tastiness-for-days!

elrabbitsbbq says:

Lol!! Boy! When you started saying Chili then showed the Ingredients "" The Twilight Zone Music " Came on!  But the end result looks good in a Major way!! and Believe me ill be using some Cocoa Powder next time i make some chilt

Food Adventures with JJ Gonzalez says:

Awesome looking chili! Need to try some of that dark chocolate!

GQue BBQ says:

Nice Looking Chili Homey! I like how you made it Spicy – That's how I like my red chili as well.

TosTinMan EasyCooking says:

That looks good Lyle! I've never heard of chocolate in chili. Good video!

jim nelson says:

that is a fine looking chili, never used chocolate or cilantro in my chili, I will try a little of both next time 

Smokes A Rollin says:

Holy bajeezus! Now that's some killer chilli! Contest worthy! That rocks! 

FitAnge S says:

Hi I'm a new subscriber from Aussieland. That Chili looks so delicious. Great job and look forward to more videos from you. Love the ending, reminds me of chris jones another guy I sub to. Best wishes 

Juanelo1946 says:

Lyle, you do chili the right way by using the various fresh-roasted peppers. Most of us don't go through all of that. I really admire how you went with straight (unadorned with salt, etc.) chile powder! The best tip ever I think is the cocoa powder! I never think to use that. This is obviously a fantastic chili recipe! WOW! Great job! Thanks for sharing this outstanding recipe my friend!

White Thunder BBQ says:

Great looking chili… I'm with you on the no beans in chili. …I don't mind then but I can easily live without them. 

Tango Joe says:

Nice looking pot of red Lyle.
There are times I will add a little chocolate, and other times some cinnamon.

redshift690 says:

Been using cocoa in my chili cooks for years. Seems to bring out the flavors of everything else. Great vid! Yum! =)

Robert Peters says:

Great video Lyle, this chili is perfect for a cold winter day!  Thanks for sharing the recipe too!

Aim'em and Claim'em Smokers says:

Good looking chili right there Lyle!

CareyP1972 says:

I agree with the dark chocolate.  But I use a Green & Black's Dark Chocolate Candy Bar.  
It would be too hot for me.  The red powder is ancho chile's right and not red pepper?  One of the great things about chili is there are so many variations of it!  Great vid!

Tess Cooks 4u says:

Love the Chili! Lots of flavor there. I use to add cocoa to my chili but it has been a while. Chili is one of my husbands favs so I make it quite often. Great video.

TitoJorge says:
