Be fore-warned that I also use ground Turkey in place of ground beef, but I've yet to find anyone who can taste the difference.
wotz the point of taking these so-called secrets to the grave?
The secret's in adding ALL The Spices during the initial cooking, while frying the garlic/onions, and browning the turkey... toss in a teaspoon of BEEF FLAVORED Bullion, and palmful of chili powder and ground red pepper (Cayenne) to taste.
I also take a few short-cuts ...like using canned kidney beans and stewed tomatoes because they're already 1/2 cooked, to cut down on the cooking time.
That's also when I add the crushed stewed tomatoes and fry them in with the meat to move things along. (Ted gets too impatient to wait once the aroma begins to permeate the apartment. Otherwise by the time it's done to perfection, the pot's empty! wtf?)
When the beans are as tender as you like them, add the last few herbs & spices with properties that otherwise change during cooking: Oregano, a pinch of cumin & cilantro that tend to get bitter with too much cooking as volatile oils boil away, and that's also when I stir in the Chipotle that I've ground to a paste, and Dark Chocolate.
Sorry... I prefer beans in my chili... ...and I also prefer it served over Jasmine rice.
Whether over rice, or on a chilidogs, I top either with diced sweet onions & cheddar cheese.
OK Now I don't have to mail it... ...you can make yer'own.
Add Beer... or Tequila...whatever... "OWN THE CHILI"! Have Fun!
