I need a bitchin' chili recipe!

Every year around the end of October my company holds a chili cook off and everybody who is everybody has an entry. There are 76 people who work for the company and 75 people bring some type of chili... #76 was me until this year. The cook off is just for fun and the proceeds go towards the Christmas party but if you win you win bragging rights for a year. Anyway only one thing stands between me and a year of being a total ass to my coworkers is a good chili recipe.

If anybody has a totally kick ass recipe let me know, if it looks good I will try to make it. I will enter the best dish and I will name it after the Otter that gives it to me. ( I hope and pray that Turd Ferguson does not win!)

I agree! Wendy's chili is very good, but they add way too many beans. I usually pick out the majority of them, whenever I order. Wendy's use both: red kidney, and pinto beans in their chili recipe.

Venison makes the best chili. Besides, it's fun to tape cardboard antlers onto the crock pot and watch people do double takes.

I need a bitchin' chili recipe!

This is my Quick Quitcherbitchin' Turkey Chili recipe, I can usually get it from start to table in 30 minutes:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 package ground turkey (approx 1.4 pounds)
4 tablespoons cumin
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
salt & pepper
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can pureed tomatoes
1 small can green chilis
1 can beans of your choice (I use kidney, navy, or black beans, depending on mood)

Grab your largest skillet, preferably one with a lid. Place on almost high heat (9 out of 10). Add olive oil. Brown and break up the ground turkey, cooking thoroughly. Reduce heat to medium, add spices and tomatoes. Stir to distribute spices evenly. Add chilis and beans, stir, reduce heat to simmer, and cover. After 10 minutes or so, taste test, and adjust salt & pepper, add hot sauce if desired. Serve. I like mine over crushed saltines, my wife likes hers with shredded cheese on top.

This is my favorite from the International Chili Society website (http://www.chilicookoff.com/default.asp)

It was also the 2005 Champion:

Dog Breath Chili

6 ounces regular breakfast sausage
2 teaspoons Wesson® Oil
3 pounds tri-tip beef, cut into small pieces or coarse ground
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) beef broth
1/4 teaspoon oregano
3 tablespoon cumin
7 cloves Gilroy garlic
2 tablespoons Gebhardt® chile powder
1 tablespoon hot chile powder
1 tablespoon mild chile power
5 tablespoons red chile powder
1 can (8 ounces) Hunt’s® Tomato Sauce
1 can (10 ounces) Ro*Tel® Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
3 Dried California chile peppers, boiled and pureed
1 Dried New Mexico chile peppers, boiled and pureed
5 Dried Cascabel chile peppers, boiled and pureed
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 can (14 1/2 ounces) chicken broth
1 teaspoon Tabasco® Pepper Sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
juice of one lime
salt to taste

Brown the sausage, dry, and set aside. Heat oil in a pot, and brown the beef. Add the cooked sausage to the pot. Add the onion and beef broth to cover the meat. Boil for 15 minutes. Add oregano and half of the cumin. Reduce heat to a light boil, and then add the garlic. Combine the chile powders into a mixture, then add half of that mixture, and cook 15 minutes. Add the tomato sauce and Ro*Tel® with the puree from the dried peppers. Add the chicken broth for the desired consistency. Cook for one hour, stirring often. Add the remaining chile powder mixture and the remaining cumin, and simmer for another 25 minutes on low to medium heat. Turn up the heat to a light boil, and add the Tabasco®, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, lime juice and salt.
