Al - If William's chilli seasoning (my favorite) is available where you are located, the recipe on the back of the spice mix is pretty good with some tweaking.

This one is pretty good if you have a crockpot:

I liberally add more ingredients as I go - great for Chili-Mac!

Here's a favorite recipe for chili that clones the stuff served at the Wendy's chain. Dave Thomas, Wendy's founder, has been serving this chili since 1969, the year the first Wendy's opened its doors. Over the years the recipe has changed a bit, but this version here is an amazing copy of the version of chili served in the early 90's. Try topping it with some chopped onion and cheddar cheese, as you can request in the restaurant.

2 pounds ground beef
One 29-ounce can tomato sauce
One 29-ounce can kidney beans (with liquid)
One 29-ounce can pinto beans (with liquid)
1 cup diced onion (1 medium onion)
1/2 cup diced green chili (2 chilies)
1/4 cup diced celery (1 stalk)
3 medium tomatoes, chopped
2 teaspoons cumin powder
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
2 teaspoons salt
2 cups water

1. Brown the ground beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain off the fat.
2. Using a fork, crumble the cooked beef into pea-size pieces.
3. In a large pot, combine the beef plus all the remaining ingredients, and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook, stirring every 15 minutes, for 2 to 3 hours. (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com)

Makes about 12 servings.

It's the real deal. Mine turned out great. Even the GF asked me if this was Wendy's. Highly recommend.

The Soup Nazi's®
Mexican Chicken Chili

1 pound chicken breast fillets (4 fillets)
1 tablespoon olive oil
10 cups water
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup tomato sauce
1 potato, peeled & chopped
1 small onion, diced
1 cup frozen yellow corn
1/2 carrot, sliced
1 celery stalk, diced
1 cup canned diced tomatoes
1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, plus liquid
1/4 cup diced canned pimento
1 jalapeno, diced
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon salt
dash cayenne pepper
dash basil
dash oregano

On the side
Sour cream
Pinch chopped Italian parsley

1. Sauté the chicken breasts in the olive oil in a large pot over medium/high heat. Cook the chicken on both side until done -- about 7-10 minutes per side. Cool the chicken until it can be handled. Do not rinse the pot.
2. Shred the chicken by hand into bite-sizes pieces and place the pieces back into the pot.
3. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and turn heat to high. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 4-5 hours. Stir mixture often so that many of the chicken pieces shred into much smaller bits. Chili should reduce substantially to thicken and darken (less orange, more brown) when done.
4. Combine some chopped Italian parsley with sour cream and serve it on the side for topping the chili, if desired. (http://www.topsecretrecipes.com)
Makes 4-6 servings.

Chili is easy to make-

cut up some meat, beef is a good choice
cut up some veggies - onions, garlic, bell peppers are good, celery and corn are NOT
saute everything and toss in some tomato sauce and a butt-load of spices, fresh chilies are fun to use too, a little beer or wine will also bring out some good flavors
slow cook in an oven or crock pot, add salt to taste

I only have to worry about feeding 3 so.....

1 lb. ground beef
1 onion diced
half green peper diced
half red peper diced
3 cloves garlic minced
1 tomato diced
1 can red kidney beans
3 bay leaves
pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
pinch of cayenne pepper
salt, pepper, cumin, paprika to taste
couple of shots of tobasco or habernero sauce

Under High Heat,
saute onions, peppers, garlic until caremlized
add ground beef, cook till brown
add salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, mix well
add tomato
add can of kidney beans with water
add half can of water
bring back to boil, then reduce heat to low
add bay leaves, crushed red pepper, cayenne, tobasco
cover, leave to simmer for about 30 minutes

I like it over white rice so when I start cooking rice when I lower the heat, when rice is done, chili is done.

Enjoy

White chili:

2 chicken breasts - cooked (or equivalent - perfect for leftovers)
Jumbo 50-something oz can chicken broth
4 15 oz cans of white/Great Northern beans
3 jalapeno peppers
1 yellow banana pepper
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
3 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp oregano

Chop all the veg's up, and combine in a large pot. Simmer at least 1 1/2 hours. Serve with a dollop of sour cream, and some shredded cheese.

I've won chili cookoffs with my red chili, but ever since I started making this I can't revert back!
