TEXAS CHILI, HOOSIER CHILI , MINNESOTA (MISPLACED TEXAN) CHILI & GOLDEN CORN BREAD!



TEXAS CHILI

"This is a Texas style chili recipe with beans. It also uses hamburger rather than chuck. Leaving behind a small amount of the hamburger fat gives it that unique Texas chili taste."

INGREDIENTS:

2 pounds ground beef
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 (14 ounce) cans beef broth
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3 (15.5 ounce) cans pinto beans, drained

DIRECTIONS:

In a stockpot over medium heat, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Drain off grease, reserving 2 tablespoons to remain in the pan. In a small bowl, stir together the garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, and flour. Sprinkle the mixture over the meat, and stir until the meat is evenly coated.
Stir the oregano into the meat mixture, then pour in the 2 cans of beef broth. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then add the cans of beans. If you like your chili soupy, add only 2 cans of beans, but if you like thick chili, use all three. Reduce heat to low, and simmer for 30 minutes to blend flavors.

HOOSIER CHILI

"This is a wonderful chili recipe. It's hearty and spicy chili is sure to hit the spot on a cold winter's night. The key is in using name brand tomato soup, I have tried it with others but haven't gotten the same results. Your friends will never guess the secret ingredient. Enjoy!"

INGREDIENTS:

1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 (10.75 ounce) cans Campbells condensed tomato soup
2 (14.5 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
5 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
2 (15.5 ounce) cans pinto beans, drained (optional)
cayenne pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS;

Crumble the ground beef into a soup pot over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off most of the grease. Add onion, red pepper flakes, and half of the cumin; cook and stir until onion is tender.
Pour in the tomato soup, chicken broth, and crushed tomatoes. Season with chili powder, salt and pepper. Simmer for 30 minutes. Pour in the beans, and season with remaining cumin and cayenne pepper; simmer for another 30 minutes. Now enjoy

MINNESOTA (MISPLACED TEXAN) CHILI

"A spicy chili: no beans, tomatoes or ground beef. Great on a cold winter day and goes especially well with Golden Sweet Cornbread. If you don't want to use beer in the chili, simply replace it with the same amount of water."

INGREDIENTS:

4 slices bacon, chopped
2 onions, chopped
8 cloves garlic, chopped
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoons paprika
1/3 cup chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
4 pounds boneless beef chuck or rump, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
4 3/4 cups water
1 (12 fluid ounce) can beer
4 canned Chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, seeded and minced
2 tablespoons cornmeal

DIRECTIONS:

In a heavy pot or Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until crispy, stirring occasionally. Drain off excess grease, leaving enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Add onions and garlic; cook and stir until the onions are tender. Season with oregano, cayenne pepper, paprika, chili powder and cumin. Cook and stir for about 30 seconds to toast the spices.
Stir in the beef, water, beer, chipotle peppers, and cornmeal; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until beef is tender, 2 1/2 to 3 hours

GOLDEN CORN BREAD

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2/3 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray or lightly grease a 9 inch round cake pan (I use a cast iron skillet).
In a large bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir in egg, milk and vegetable oil until well combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.

Sue,

Your chili recipes have me in the mood. Every Texan will tell you that true chili does not have beans. Although I'm a native Texan and I might be shot, I tend to like chili with beans. Don't tell anyone.
