“Everybody who’s anybody knows this wouldn’t be chili without two 15-oz. cans of drained dark red kidney beans.”

That sound you heard was the entire state of Texas having a stroke. ^_^

NNNNNOOOOOOO!!!!!! AAAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!

If you put meat in it, it's called Chili con Carne (Chili with meat). Which is in fact the name of the dish in the first place. ;)

 

If someone wants to get all high and mighty about origins, strict recipes, etc, then they'd better start adding in suet and leaving out the tomatoes too. Next thing you know someone is going to say ketchup doesn't belong on a hot dog. In which case I'll say, go back to Chicago. ;)

John, isn't this a Man Cave recipe that you have dusted off and tweaked?

This was a video I really enjoyed watching, John, especially anticipating the good natured debate after the "Anybody who is anybody.." comment.  Very funny, and a great hook to bring in other approaches and methods.

 

Personally, I think that anybody who is anybody knows that you must add 2 tablespoons of Mesquite Honey to the recipe. :)

 

Excellent, as always, John.  Fun, too.  :good: :good:

      Nothing puts me in mind of fall quite like chili. Though I admit that none of my friends would ever define this as chili as it contains beans and a few other things to ease my conscience and qualify as healthy. Started out with 3lbs of ground turkey that I smoked for 3 hours on the Big Joe. Garlic and jalapenõ, cowbell, mexibelle, poblano and bell peppers that I roasted on the Joe after pulling the turkey, black and kidney beans, white onion, carrot, etc. Topped with red onion, yellow bell pepper- most of which I dropped putting the lid one- and extra sharp cheddar. I unfortunately didn't get a pic of anything on the smoker. Had to snap this picked quickly before the couples devoured the pot.

      Made some chili in the crockpot today.

      Hurst products have always worked out well for me.  
       
      I added some smoked salt, garlic, basil, bag of frozen onions & peppers and a can of habanero Rotel to this one before thickening up with a small amount of ap flour.

      Chicken is my wife’s flavor and I like to mix it up so I went with a Shawarma feast. Started out with some chicken thighs that were on sale.

      Shinned and deboned and cut them in half.

      Bones were saved for making stock at a later time.

      Next I made up a yogurt based shawarma marinade. Here are the ingredients:
      1 cup plain whole milk Greek yogurt
      5 cloves of garlic
      ¼ cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
      ¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
      2 tbsp. of olive oil
      2 tbsp. of ketchup
      1 teaspoon cloves
      1 teaspoon salt
      1 teaspoon paprika
      ½ teaspoon cumin
      ½ teaspoon caraway (ground fennel)
      ½ teaspoon cardamon
      ½ teaspoon of oregano or thyme
      ½ teaspoon cinnamon
      ½ teaspoon nutmeg
      ½ teaspoon crushed peppercorn
      ¼ teaspoon of cayenne pepper
      ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
       
       

       
       

       
       
      Everybody in the pool

      and then thoroughly mixed.

      The thighs now went into pool for a nice long rest.

      Next I made up some Tzatziki. Here are the ingredients: (From Chef John on FoodWishes.com)
      2 cups Greek yogurt
      1 large cucumber, peeled, grated, tossed with 1/2 teaspoon of salt
      4 cloves garlic, very finely minced
      juice of half a lemon or vinegar to taste
      3 tbsp. chopped fresh dill and/or mint
      salt, pepper, to taste
       



      Next up was the Hummus ingredients.
      One 15-ounce can (425 grams) chickpeas, also called garbanzo beans
      1/4 cup (59 ml) fresh lemon juice, about 1 large lemon
      1/4 cup (59 ml) tahini (we used Krinos)
      Half of a large garlic clove, minced
      2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for serving
      1/2 to 1 teaspoon kosher salt, depending on taste
      1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
      2 to 3 tablespoons water
      Dash of ground paprika for serving

       
       

      Then some Persian Rice (From Bosco)

      2 cups of basmati rice
      3 ½ cups of chicken stock/broth
      2 tbsp of butter
      ½ tsp turmeric
      ¼ tsp cumin
      Kosher salt and pepper

      And finally a Mediterranean Tomato Salad.

       
       

      Now I can cook the Shawarma. Broke out my good skewers. (Closest I can come to a Shawarma rotisserie) I used two so I could better control them on the grill.

      Now I tightened up the stops to help keep in the marinade and juices

      and placed them on the grill.

      Flipped them after 5 to 6 minutes.

      Here is everything plated up family style with some cucumber slices, baby pickles, pita bread and a Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin IPA.

      So Good! My wife loved everything and said it was the better that anything she’s ever ordered at a restaurant.
      Thanks for looking.

      Man Cave Mustard Recipe:
       
      1 cup whole mustard seeds
      1 cup mustard powder
      2 cups Guinness beer
      1 1/2 cups malt vinegar
      5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
      3 tablespoons honey
      1/2 cup brown sugar
      2 teaspoons salt
      2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
      3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
      1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
      1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
       
      Place the mustard seeds in a stainless steel mixing bowl and add 1 cup of the malt vinegar and 1/2 cup of the beer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
       
      Combine the remaining ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. When you achieve a simmer, add the mustard seeds with their liquid and bring back to a simmer. Let simmer, stirring fairly constantly for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes. Transfer to mason jars or other air tight containers and refrigerate. This mustard will keep for at least six months in the fridge and probably longer. This recipe makes a little over a pint of finished mustard.
       
      This mustard can be modified from this stage into a lot of different things. If you want a sweet honey mustard, add honey until you achieve the taste you like. If you want a spicier mustard, either add some additional cayenne pepper while simmering or add some prepared horseradish to the mustard after it has cooled.
       
      Enjoy!
