    Smile Chili

    So many ways to make and enjoy Chil~.Beans, no beans, hot & spicy or not, over pasta or not with toppings like onions and cheese... the combos never end.

    Me, I like mine mild with beans, on pasta with cheddar cheese sprinkled on top. Some may not call it chili after that but it's ok.

    How do you like your Chili and do you by chance have a recipe you'd like to share? Bet we have some fans of putting it over fritoes corn chips.

    Here's some sites to visit to get some new ideas~

    I like it thick and full of veggies - preferably no beans - served up with cheese and sour cream. I used to prefer it mild, but I'm up to about "medium" now.

    1 lb ground beef (or turkey, chicken, etc)
    1 small onion, chopped
    1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
    chopped jalapenos to taste
    1 bell pepper, chopped
    1 can mushroom pieces and stems, or 8 oz chopped raw mushrooms
    1 lg can tomatoes, whole or diced
    1/2 - 1 can tomato paste, to preferred thickness and taste (you can cook it down thicker, too.)
    Spices: chili powder, cumin, pepper, oregano and cocoa powder. No joke!

    My trick: don't brown the meat. Just mix it all together and let it simmer. Tastes best the next day!

    Oh wow. Now I want chili for breakfast. I have some in the freezer.

    Although I don't get it often; I like Cincinnati style chili! I especially love cheese coneys (no onions please) and 3 ways, which are speghetti, chili, and cheese. Of course, no Cincy chili meal is complete without oyster crackers;

    An "excellant" white bean/chicken chili.
    Cooking time, also includes baking the chicken,
    as well as simmering the soup.

    Cooking Time: 2 hours
    Prep Time: 30 minutes
    About 10 servings

    1 1/2 lbs. boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
    garlic powder
    onion powder
    ground black pepper
    2-( 14 1/2 ounce ) cans chicken broth
    2-( 15 ounce ) cans white great northern beans, undrained
    1-(15 ounce) can cannellini white kidney beans, undrained
    1-( 4 ounce ) can Ortega Diced Green Chilies
    1 cup finely chopped onions
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    2 teaspoons ground cumin
    2 teaspoons dried oregano
    1 teaspoon ground cayenne red pepper
    3-5 dashes Tabasco Sauce ( or ) hot pepper sauce

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Season both sides of the chicken breasts, with some
    of the garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.
    Arrange in a greased 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
    Bake for 30 minutes in the 350 degree oven;
    remove from pan and set aside to cool for just abit.
    When cooled some-what, slice and cut into small pieces.

    In a Dutch oven, ( or large soup kettle ) add the cut-up chicken,
    chicken broth, northern beans, cannellini beans, diced green chiles,
    chopped onions, minced garlic, chili powder, cumin,
    oregano, cayenne red pepper and tabasco.
    Bring to a boil, then reduce heat & simmer, ( covered ) for 1 hour.

    Note: This recipe originally calls for 3-( 15 oz. ) cans
    white great norhtern beans, but I just add two.

    It also says to add 2 ( heaping teaspoons ) of cumin and oregano;
    for those who like their chili a bit more spicy
