Some comments that may maximize your chili enjoyment or just confuse you:
- The longer you
cook the chili, the better it will taste. It's not uncommon for me to start
cooking around ten in the morning and start eating around four in the afternoon.
I'm not sure I'd let it cook overnight, but a full day is good.
- Use generic
ingredients. You won't be able to tell the difference in taste, and
it's a whole lot cheaper.
- If you've got
extra (and you WILL have extra), it can be frozen for an unbelievably long
time and remain tasty.
- If you're a
vegetarian, I'm told you can replace the hamburger with corn. Yeah,
I know, it doesn't sound good, but I guess it's good if you don't want to
- Legal note:
This is technically chili WITH BEANS. I'm told in California
that it's contrary to some guideline to call something "chili" if it has
beans in it. Go figure.
