Spicy Chili Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe is the culmination of several years' worth of experimenting to get just the right flavor. For those who like their chili very hot, the secret is to add more jalapenos. The most I ever used in a recipe was five...was it ever spicy - Liesha Hoek, Somerset, New Jersey

I made this a couple of weeks back and everyone at worked Loved it. I did add a few things. 1 TBL of cayenne, (1) 28 ounce of tomato sauce, and 1 TBL of smoked paprika. This time I'm deleting the cayenne but adding 1 TBL of ground Thai peppers. I'll let ya know how this turns out :) I let this chili cook in a slow cooker for 2 days. the heat kinda dissipated . so this time I followed the direction somewhat. a half hour before serving I added 5 more ground up thai peppers. I did add half the tomato sauce.

i actually used the base of this recipe for a food challenge for my friend. I put in 3 tblspn of Cayenne and 5 jalapeno peppers along with 2 drops of pure capsasin. I also used pork mixed with the beef. You get a better taste that way. Lean and fatty at the same time. This is a very decent beginners recipe for chili.

Excellent recipe. I used sweet italian sausage and vidalia onions to counter the heat because.......I added two ghost chili peppers. It was phenomenal!
