A hearty cold weather dish to warm you up and put a smile on your face. Just like mom used to make...well not exactly.

Yikes, I thought I had heard it all, but HOPE that you meant Tabasco sauce, as I have Googled tobacco sauce and am pretty sure this isn't something one would want in their chili.
Other than that, this looks excellent and I will make it next group party, drop a lot of the stuff that I usually add and just go with this simple and delicious sounding recipe!!! Thanks.
Thanks Judi for your sharp eye. It's a bad habit I have of typing quick and not looking back. I have a hard enough time getting my girls to try hot Tabasco sauce so I couldn't imagine how hard it would be to get tobacco sauce into them. Of course if there was such a thing and I served it to minors someone would be calling family services on me so thanks for saving me from that call.
I've really never made this the same way twice and I'm surprised when I look at the ingredients I added the day I took these photo's. I think that's the point really, start with a basic idea and make it your own. This is already so far removed from how my mom makes it but it's still a hit.
I hope you enjoy it.
I recently made this and I was very happy with it. I did not follow it exactly but it was basically the same idea. The changes I made are only based on personal preference. I like my chili to be simple.
That is why I omitted the following things:
- I did not add carrots and celery
- I did not add chorizo (though I am sure it would be good)
- I also didn't add the tomato sauce, as I like really thick chili.
Here are a few things that I added:
- I added a few tablespoons of chipotle puree
- I added a few tablespoons of cocoa powder (trust me, it's good)
- I also topped mine with grated cheese and Mexican crema...yum!
Thanks for the recipe Steve!
I've made chili so many times and really never quite the same way twice. The great thing is you sometimes have happy accidents. While trying to exercise my new cooking skills and create an entirely different chili formula then this recipe I stumbled upon adding deli cut hickory smoked bacon. I brought that idea into this basic chili recipe and was shocked at the results. Bacon just makes everything taste better in my world and it's now my new not so secret ingredient.
