Chili

I've been tinkering with a chili recipe and made what I think was my best effort so far, last weekend. I fire roasted a variety of chilis and blended them for the base and went from there. I thought it was already really good when it occurred to me that I had several pounds of pulled pork in the freezer so I grabbed a pound of that and threw it in there. I can't describe just how good it was but man, that smoky layer of flavor took it over the top. On the side, I found an old-school recipe for cast iron skillet corn bread. Good stuff.

I recently won a chili contest at my church by fire roasting garlic, fresh garden tomatoes and 4 kinds of peppers (also from my garden) and blending them together for a base.

Then I used 4 different meats and my secret blend of spices. Works every time.

Excellent. That fire roasting adds another layer. Do you people your chilis after you roast them?

My mother made a really unique chili. She just passed recently. I hope I can find the recipe in her ridiculous amount of unorganized recipe books.

I may never know, but the way you talk about cooking, it sounds like you are a really good cook. There is nothing like a really good, spicy chilli on a cold evening. I can honestly say, I've never had chilli with pulled pork, and now, all I can say is, I want to try that.

Nah man, I'm a hack. I just like to eat.

HA! Me too. Hey, if you are interested, me and my son experimented a little bit last week, and came up with Kobe beef burgers. I'll post the ingredients we used. A local grocer actually has some really good Kobe beef(we were going to use Bison, until we saw the Kobe) and the results were excellent.

For real?
I already got all the ingredients for that if true.
For real, we had a chili contest at work and one of the guys brought it in and it was pretty good... think about it, a lot of people put chocolate into tomato sauce based foods like chili and pasta sauce to give it a hint of a Mole' flavor and if you use sweet chocolate a sweet/hot flavor. There are lots of tequila chili recipes and many more rattlesnake chili recipes, why not combine them?

He took a base tequila chili recipe, put in chocolate and used rattlesnake for the meat, I have to say it was good.

I guarantee you they were. :Drool:If you don't mind my asking, what'd you pay for a pound of that stuff?
