I like to use lamb or turkey and add honey for sweetness and thickening. I also pour a bottle of Guiness into the mixture for thickening. Aside from those additions, it's a traditional chili recipe. It always comes out really great.

My Homemade Chili Southern Style- I've never actually measured the ingredients- 2-3 lbs. lean beef 2 cans stewed tomatoes 1 can tomato sauce 1/4 cup ketchup 1 large chopped onion 2 cans pinto beans (strained & rinsed) chili powder cumin salt & pepper cayenne pepper paprika I always boil my hamburger to clean it from most of the fat. Then I toss it in a colander strainer, rinse. Then place in a pot or large pan and add olive oil, onions, peppers, salt & pepper. Brown the hamburger then add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, pinto beans, ketchup, 3-4 cups of water to cover and the dry seasonings to taste. Cook down on Medium for about an hour or two depending on how thick or thin you want it. Serves for bowls of chili (my kids always add cheese on top). Or thick if using for dip for the fun gathering. Enjoy!

My crockpot is my summertime HERO, really helps keep the house cool. In it, I make Green Turkey Chili, quite light but hearty. If you would like my recipe, it is posted here: http://worththewhisk.com/2009/07/01/green-turkey-chili/

There are so many good chilli recipes here I have to bookmark this page to come back for a few of them. I think I'll start with a simple one like Susan's who makes her chilli with canned beans. It will give me a good start. I've never made chilli before and was looking for an easy recipe. Thank you all for sharing.

Rick Bayless has a wonderful old school chili recipe. His calls for beef, but I've been known to use bison. No veggies, no sweeteners --but the option of beans. I usually make up a pot of borracho beans and add 'em.
