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.
