^I love making chili, and make both chili and vegetarian chili pretty damned well, if I do say so myself. I've recently learned how to vastly improve my already exceptional chili con carne recipe by using the trick of a friend: cook it all day in beer.
beer? hubs will love that! do you just add it to the recipe?
bought a TOS stamper set off eBay. no earthly use for it whatsoever, just like knowing I can stamp Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the Ent1701 on any surface I wish. Silly and intoxicating!
It depends on how you make your chili, I suppose. I use beef, beans, and tomato in mine, and I never add water but neither do I drain the liquids from any of the ingredients. When I tried it with beer I drained off some of the liquids and added the beer, and I cooked it about twice as long as I normally would, adding beer to keep it moist. It was AMAZING!
