My 2 favorite ingredients are using stew meat instead of ground beef and adding pop. Either coke or root beer. Make it extra spicy and add pop to tame the spice.

Years of winging it eventually turned into a fairly reliable formula for me.
2 pounds steak - whatever cut sounds good, more meat never hurts either
4 cans of black beans
1 big can of tomato sauce
2 pasilla peppers
2 anaheim
2 habenero
4-6 jalapeno
4-6 serrano
1 medium can roasted green peppers
1 yellow onion
1 red onion
1 beer of choice (stout works good)

Take half of the peppers and half the tomato sauce and liquefy it in a blender. Dice the rest and saute with most of the onion. Cube the steak and throw it in with the peppers and onions once they're almost done. Just lightly brown the steak, very lightly. Drain the beans and huck everything in a big pot. Pour half the beer in the pot, drink the rest, grab another. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until you want to eat.
You can mitigate the heat by only adding some of the seeds from the peppers or by slowly adding the pepper puree to the pot 'til it's right.
Normally gets rave reviews.

MMMMMN, Rusty Brass' recipe sounds like "Ring of Fire" territory but if it works I'm in! I would assume "Anahiem" and "Serrano" are some sort of peppers but they are probably illegal here in Canada (but weed is!)... Not so much with the recipes, much more with the winging it style. Cumin. final answer Jerry!

If you leave out the seeds from both of the habaneros and half the jalapenos it's pretty manageable. And that's coming from a guy who sweats like a fat man in the desert. I actually bead up just buying peppers at the store.

the last chili I made had duck as the meat - won 2nd place at the annual contest at work, making it the 3rd year in a row that I've medaled in the competition

Sometimes I do beef and lamb together, sometimes pork.

My basic ingredients list:
a lot of meat of your choice
a lot of yellow squash and zucchini
a few big cans of diced and crushed tomatoes
a small can tomato paste
chipotles in adobo
jalapenos
onions
garlic
spices - chili powder, cumin (lots), a couple bay leaves, salt and pepper
limes
honey or brown sugar

I use a big le creuset dutch oven to make it. I'll get the garlic and a good bit of onion going in it first - with either olive oil or bacon grease. then the meat goes in with salt, pepper, cumin. get that going really well with occasional splashes of beer as needed to add liquid, then add in the squash and zukes and more onion and the jalapenos and spices. when thats had some time then in with the tomato products and the diced into a mush chipotles in adobo. cook a bit, add in a little honey or brown sugar. cook a bit more add in lime juice. cook a bit more

yeah - I usually have it cooking on the stove half the day at least

and it can be as spicy or as not spicy as desired, just adjust those ingredients. I prefer to have noticeable heat, but I don't ever want it too hot to distract from the other flavors

here is a pic of it early in the process

and here it is after some hours of cooking down

and yes - no beans. If I use beans I make a vegeterian green chili with beans and lentils and soyrizo and lots more peppers of various kinds so long as they are green and call it my soylent green chili

I'd love to know this recipe, if you don't mind sharing.

My wife doesn't really have a set recipe... We don't like much heat, so she just uses a little chili powder. We also throw in frozen sweet corn and we use venison instead of beef. I also like elbow macaroni in it, though my wife could take it or leave it. There's more to it, but she's never written it down I can't remember recipes to save my life.
