    This is a follow up to my earlier chili thread. After conferring with a chef from a restaurant, this is what I will do:

    1) Cut meat into small pieces; dust with flour; sauté in heavy pan with canola oil

    2) Add onion, garlic, peppers (to suit) and salt/pepper to taste

    3) When sauté complete add to pan 1 small bottle of dark beer (do not flatten beer) and whisk to fully deglaze pan bottom until ‘gravy’ starts to form

    4) Add 2 cans of “chili” beans (or kidney if preferred)

    5) Add 1 can of stewed tomatoes (or Mexican style stewed tomatoes)

    6) Add 2T tomato paste

    7) Add spices (for me, 2T chili powder, 1T cumin, 1t smoked paprika)

    8) Either cook covered at low heat for 1 hour, or, crock pot 2-3 hours

    Any thoughts?

    It sounds delicious, but I don't cook that much though.

    Yes, get your spices from Penzeys. http://www.penzeys.com/

    Store bought or bulk spices from places like Costco are not good. Quality spices from a store that sells only spices adds a dimension to the taste of your food that is amazing.

    Penzeys as 4 different varieties of paprika. A half dozen Chili powders.

    They have two locations in Portland and one in Beaverton.

    LOL! What is it with you and ABM and WINCO. I told him the same thing when he was trying to get some seasoning thing he wanted to sell. Think of it like you do booze. A mixed drink with the good stuff is always going to taste better then a mixed drink made with cheap booze.

    Unlike some of you big shots, I live on a tight budget. So, WINCO is it for me. I mean, I can get $0.16 of smoked paprika at a big shot store for $17.00, but I simply can't afford it.

    So there.

    Most of their spices are $3-4.

    Those all look like really fancy versions of chili. Does anybody have a recipe for chili that is mainly used as a topping? Like, with no beans. I want something to add to my hamburgers and hot dogs next time I have people over for a barbecue. Something like this.

    I go to the Penzey's in Cherry Creek, near my house in Denver. I can attest to how good their spices are.

    It's like a whole different level of flavor. You forget that empires were made trading spices.

    When we make recipes now, oftentimes we'll halve the spices if they're from Penzey's.

    Not to mention, compared to Safeway or Albertson's, they're cheaper.

    If it had a chili flavor wouldn't it be a Sloppy Jose?

    I buy bulk spices at Berkeley Bowl. I like that because for things I use only occasionally I can but the exact amount I need, a tablespoon or so, cost pennies, and I don't have leftover spices losing their flavor.

    If you won't be using up your spices quickly, store in freezer. Flavor keeps better. Always store saffron in freezer.

    I think I have a chili burger recipe somewhere at home, I'll try to dig it out this weekend.
