    USCHO Cooks: Maybe We Can Beat Bobby Flay

    Carry On.

    As for Super Bowl Sunday, I'm thinking slow cooker chili.

    Beans or no beans? Always a solid choice, SB or not.

    Kidney and black beans (yeah, I know I just signed my own death warrant in Texas). I do, however, use stew meat rather than ground beef, and at least two kinds of chiles, plus chipotle powder and smoked paprika.

    Beans - but black, not kidney or pinto. And always less cumin than it calls for.

    I don't make chili often, but I'm a fan of this one (I sub about 16 oz tomato sauce for the whole tomatoes, and use 2 cans black beans - no pinto): http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/beef...-chorizo-chili

    It's "healthy", but has tons of flavor.

    I make it maybe twice a year, but only in fall/winter, and always a double batch. The leftovers freeze well for up to a month.

    If available, "chuck eye" (among other names) steak makes really good chili meat. Off the same cut as ribeyes but from the end so too small to sell as ribeye steaks. High quality meat for a good price. Cube it up and it stays real tender no matter how long you cook the chili for.

    Anyone make their base by infusing a stock with a homemade chile paste? Ever since being exposed to that method I haven't touched tomato sauce. Really adds fascinating depth and the longer you cook it the better tasting and more complex it gets.

    And the anti-bean crowd can stuff it . If there ever were a dish that had no rules whatsoever...it's chili. That said, I agree with the opinions that black beans are the way to go.

    No beans, cayenne is a necessity, though. The slow heat that the cayenne creates.....oooooo yeah.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    Definitely beans. Taking the suggestions here, I'll use black beans instead of kidney beans.

    You should use whatever kind of beans you like, or no beans, if that's what you like. That's the great thing about chili, almost everything works.

    This.

    I was being a smartazz.

    My chili has ground beef, chorizo (my secret weapon), pinto beans, red beans, and black beans.

    Used 2.5 lbs of ground chuck, 3 small onions, 1 28 oz can of diced tomatoes, 1 can of kidney beans, 1 can of black beans, and 1 can of Great Northern beans. Took only 15 minutes to put together, and I feel I will have leftovers for a few days.

    It's almost better to cook it the day before you need it. Chili is better the next day.

    Another of my chili secrets is using a single can of Bush's chili strayer in a big batch. The flavor is good an gives you a foundation to build off of.

    It was good... needed no hot sauce.

    Chocolate Raspberry Pie bars. The most delicious thing I have ever baked. I used frozen raspberries picked over the summer, Callebaut dark chips, and added some Callebaut white chocolate chunks. They are incredibly good. Make them immediately.

    I'll have to try this one. I have to be very careful with salt now.

    As for salt, use as much or as little as you want. I used about 2 teaspoons.

    In that case keep an eye on how much comes from the canned items. Likely quite the load...
