    I'm pretty sure this has been visited before with some excellent results. I am looking forward to the newest improvements.

    Try adding some unsweetened baking chocolate (high quality). It changes the flavor quite a bit. I think I need to make a pot tonite, thanks for the inspiration.

    One of my favorites for a basic chili recipe

    1lb each ground beef (or venison) and ground pork
    1 medium yellow onion, diced
    4 or 5 cloves of garlic, minced
    1 28oz can diced tomatoes with juice (fire roasted are good if you can find them)
    1 stick butter
    3/4 (2.5 oz) bottle chili powder (grandma's or similar. NOT generic)
    1 1/2 tablespoons smoked paprika
    1 - 2 tablespoons cumin depending on taste
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)
    Salt and Pepper to taste
    Pinto or chili beans if you must

    Brown ground beef and pork then drain well. Add the stick of butter and the dcied onion. Once the onion is soft add the spices and garlic. Stir for a minute or two until the spices are fragrant but not burnt. Add the tomato and approximately 1 can of water (more or less to desired consistency) Here's where you add the beans if you want them. Bring to slow boil, partially cover and reduce heat to med. low. Allow to simmer for an hour or so. Adjust salt and pepper to taste and serve it up.
