    If I could, I'd share it with everyone here...I made a full crock pot of it and I'll get sick of it soon enough.

    I just had a 2nd bowl of it and it still tastes pretty good, so hopefully my tastebuds aren't too out of wack.

    As weird as this may sound, I'd be interested in learning how to (you) make chili. I'm working out of town and learning how to cook. Chili would be fun (and even so if I have to figure out how to make it myself).

    It's pretty simple actually in regards to fixing it, since the crock pot does most of the work. Mostly a matter of browning the meat (I use ground turkey), chopping up an onion and a green bell pepper, and then open a bunch of cans of stuff and a couple packets of seasoning...I can send you a PM with specific instructions if you like.

    I've got two sure-fire recipes for you:

    1) at the grocery store you can get cans of chili already made. just heat and eat.

    2) Wendy's makes awesome chili. It's even hot when they serve it to you.

    I've never been able to make chili turn out, so those options have always been my default.

    Don't you mean "one" if you don't include Captain Jack Sparrow? Although I'm still convinced that the elevated salt content of sailors is a problem, especially an "old salt" like Captain Jack!

    There are some great recipes on-line... but I've actually found that the McCormicks chili seasoning pack and a slow-cooker work great together. Just follow the directions on the little packet. BUT... you have to add a bit of sugar to the chili while it's cooking to cut the salt down otherwise it's like a chili salt lick.

    Hmm...that's an interesting idea! It never occurred to me. I'll have to try that next time I make a pot! I prefer the McCormick Tex-Mex packet when making chili - it has good flavor - but it's not real easy to find in some areas.

    OK, I'm just gonna post the recipe in here...feel free to save it, change it, do whatever with it.

    You need a crock pot/slow cooker for this recipe. I have a 6 qt crock pot, so if you have a smaller one, you'll want to adjust the recipe accordingly. This is what I use when I make chili:

    2 lbs ground turkey (can also use ground beef and some like to add sausage, but not me)
    1 med onion, chopped
    1 med green bell pepper, chopped
    2 16 oz cans Bush's dk red kidney beans
    2 16 oz cans Bush's Hot chili beans
    1 can Mexican style Rotel (or whatever flavor you like)
    2 15 oz cans chili-ready tomatoes
    1 15 oz can tomato sauce (can also use V-8 or tomato juice instead and just add it to the chili to get the desired consistency)
    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    2 packets McCormick Tex-Mex Chili mix (I like the flavor of this mix the best, but it's not real easy to find - you can try some of the other flavors if you want to)
    chili powder
    salt & pepper

    Brown the meat, adding chopped onion and pepper while browning to partially cook them, but be sure to completely brown the meat. Salt & pepper to taste - don't overdo it! DON'T drain the meat - add it straight to the crock pot. Add all the other ingredients (I just wing it when adding the chili powder - depends on how spicy you like your chili) and mix thoroughly.

    Let cook in crock pot on low for at least 4 hrs - I usually start it late at night and turn it off in the morning when I get up. And it's done! Add shredded cheese, crackers, & sour cream to taste...

    I'll try that. My dad did lots of crock pot meals when he had to work out of town (masonry work). He was more of an "Irish stew" sort of guy.

    I agree the Wendy's chili is good. I'm trying to save money and learn to cook at the same time. I've mastered a whole-wheat bread (in a bread-machine) recipe. It comes out tasting about twice as good as anything I can buy. I'll probaby perfect either a white bread or a cheese bread recipe to go with the chili!

    I'm not discouraged from trying yet. I'll have to eat some bad chili at first but eventually I figure it will pay off in the end!

    If I could thank you more than once, I would!

    Maybe I'll try something like this over the weekend! You rock Riona!

    I recall some tex-mex chili at a restaurant named Zuma's (at Faneuil Hall in Boston) several years ago. It used chunks of real beef rather than hamburger. That's definitely one direction that I want to go in my experimentation!

    You're welcome You might try adding a little sugar like HelloNNNewman suggested. I plan on trying it next time to see how it tastes. I don't find my chili excessively salty, but I don't add any salt - just pepper. (Only reason I included it in the recipe is because I know most people LOVE adding salt - except Verwon)

    I think, if dbd is on forced hiatus, I am also going to have to take one, until his return.
