Question Marks question about chili

Last night I made chili for my church VBS. Everybody went gaga over my chili. My question is this(because the chili to me was nothing was just a very basic, toned down chili for all the kids) how do YOU make chili?
I once won a chili cook off at church and that, too was nothing special. How much different can a basic ground meat chili be???
So, what are your chili recipes?

I have 2 basic recipes I use. I have one that is a vegetarian chili with lots of beans and veggies with great spices.

Then there is my mom's chili that has a lot of juice to it (it's more soupy than chunky chili).

I think it just makes a difference how you season your meat (before or after you add the liquid), and quite frankly, how much seasoning you use. I also think draining the browned meat and beans before adding them in helps too.

i dont have a chili recipie.... i was actually thinking of making some tonite.. i use 1lb of ground beef, 2 cans of light red kidney beans drained, then i add either sloppy joe sauce, ketchup, pasta sauce, or tomato paste, just depends what i have around the house. i also add a can or two of the chopped tomatoes and green chilies if i have those around but still a can or diced tomatoes, a couple slices of valveta cheese, sugar, and chili powder... oh and some onion.. but i never make it the same way. my husband is as confused as i am when it never tastes the same. even if i try to do it the same way.. i am not a very good cook yet,

If you guys are interested in my vegetarian chili recipe let me know and I can post it. You could even add in a lb of ground beef and some extra tomato juice to make it stretch even further.

My "recipe" comes from the back of a chili seasoning packet. I just add some Tony Cachere's, onion powder, and garlic powder to my meat when I'm cooking it.

I go a very simple and different route. I use 2 pounds pork sausage (usually no beef at all), 2 cans of chili-flavored tomatoes and a little water. Believe it or not, those tomatoes add so much flavor and to me, nothing else is needed. I do not like ground beef, hence the sausage. I have made it with a mix of both, but all sausage is my preference.

my usual chili is more of a taco soup. i like different kinds of beans and lots of tomato and ground beef with taco seasoning.

if I make crockpot chili, i usually slow cook it for a few days add beer and cocoa powder. it is very thick and dark by the time I get done with it.

also I find hot sauce fixes most things if I don't like the way they turn out.

When done properly, everyone benefits from couponing!
