2 pounds of Sirloin Steak, chunked small and simmered in Beef Broth with 2 diced onions, diced tomatoes, 2 cans, 3 Diced green chili's, Chipotle Chili powder to taste (Very hot, by the way, compared to standard chili powder), sliced mushrooms to taste (because we like 'em!), simmer all day to reduce the stock, and it really does need to be cooked in Iron for the proper flavor over a very low flame. You can melt either shredded co-jack, colby or pepper jack cheese into it as well in the bowl.

The addition of both cumin and oregano should be considered Tom.

Cumin sounds really good, but oregano? Naw, not in chili. By the way, for my fellow hoosiers and people from Ohio, Illinois or Kentucky.....macaroni does NOT go in Chili!

Oh yeah, I forgot, 2 cans of chili beans!

I use the Wick Fowler Chili Mix when I am in a hurry for chili. It contains garlic, onion, cumin, oregano, paprika, chili powder and red pepper.

Well, I'd email you a bowl, but it's a little difficult to recompile on your end without some technology that hasn't been invented yet. .

Being from Texas I will take my advice from the mystical message emanating from the "cast iron" pot of chili and go home. Regrettably I'll have to wait until my workday is over. I won't reinforce the previous posters plea for Mexican oregano and cumin. Nor add the importance of paprika and ancho chili powder, though I think that the chipotle powder is a good idea in small doses. Oh yes, and tomatoes have no place in chili. Nor do beans should you stray that far. Oh, and another thing, your stove top is filthy. Hope that you enjoy your tomato-beef soup.

Hey, I take offense to that.

I just went and took a snap of what's simmering on my stove right now:


Need to add the pinto beans in another 20min, then simmer another 15, top with sour cream and cheese, and mmmm.

Side note: I'm jealous of your cast iron cookware Tom.

I am a Native Texan, born to native Texans, and some of the grand parents were native as well, but not all, and having been scorned by Coloradoans on whilst on vacation, I am entitled to post that.

Post what? That you want to go over to Tom's house and bring beer and your dog? Wait, here's an invitation. You are cordially invited to go to Tom's house with your cheap beer and mangy mutt to eat your fill of tomato-beef soup that has no Mexican oregano, paprika nor ancho chili powder and was cooked on a filthy stove. There, you are invited.

I guess a simple no was too much to ask?

Jeff, I don't like Oregano in Chili. I did add the cumin, though, thanks fpor the reminder.
