There are a number of things that can be done to make the perfect chili. But, there is no perfect chili; just as there is no perfect taco. We all have our own preferences and chili is no different.
For me, there are two main types of chili. Chili Verde, which uses green chilis and tomatillos and Chili Colorado, which uses red chiles. Both chilis have their place in the world and both are delicious in their own right. Here I will be discussing how I make my version of a red chili. Something that has been passed down to me since I was a child, something I have tweaked over the years but still remains true to my original chili recipe that I learned when I was very young.
So, let’s get started on this tasty journey!
Spicy, warm and hearty. Chili is known for its flavor but also how easy it is to make. It’s perfect for Fall and Winter. I used to hate making chili because it wouldn’t have enough flavor.
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1/4 cup diced white onion
– 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed with a garlic press
– 1 pound ground beef or ground turkey
– 3 cups water or chicken broth (I used chicken broth)
– 1 teaspoon salt plus more to taste
– 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper plus more to taste
– 1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce (I used 15 oz can of tomatoes)
– 3 tablespoons masa harina flour mixed with 1/4 cup water (I used cornmeal instead of masa harina)
– 4 guajillo chilies stemmed and seeded (I suggest using gloves when doing this step)**
– 3 teaspoons ground cumin**
– 2 teaspoons sweet paprika**
– 1 teaspoon dried marjoram**
Every chili has its own unique blend of ingredients, but all chilies have some things in common: beans, meat and spices. The main ingredient in chili is always an assortment of peppers to give it that kick. There are many different types of chili; beef, chicken and vegetarian. This recipe is a traditional guajillo chili that takes about two hours to prepare. It’s an excellent side dish and goes well with a variety of meals. Guajillo chilis are one of the most popular peppers in Mexico, with a spicy heat that can range from mild to moderate depending on how long they’re dried for and where they’re grown. They have a deep red color and are most commonly used in sauces or soups because they’re not very spicy by themselves.
Here is my recipe for the perfect guajillo chili:
– 3 pounds beef stew meat
– 2 onions, diced
– 4 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 tablespoon cumin seeds
– 2 tablespoons oregano leaves
– 2 teaspoons salt
– 1 teaspoon black pepper
– 3 cups water
Heat oil over medium heat in large pot or dutch oven until shimmering but not smoking. Add beef cubes and brown on all sides,
This is a great chili recipe. The guajillo chili paste makes this chili flavorful and spicy.

I love chili. There’s nothing better than making a big pot of chili on a cold day and cozying up on the couch. You can eat it alone, with friends and family, or even at parties with football games on in the background. Chili is a versatile dish and can be eaten in many different ways with different ingredients.
There are different types of chilis. White chicken chili, vegetarian chili, beef chili and so much more. I love them all but my favorite type of chili is guajillo chili. Guajillo chili is an ancho chili that has been dried and stripped of their seeds. It has a deep red color and has a smoky flavor that isn’t too spicy.
My favorite way to eat guajillo chili is with cornbread! The cornbread goes great with the smokiness of the guajillo chili and balances out the spiciness of the peppers. One other great thing about this dish is that you can cook it however you want! If you want your guajillo chili to be thicker, you can add some cornstarch to thicken it up or if you want it to be thinner, just add some water to thin it out!
I hope you enjoy this
Chili is not a mystery. It’s the ultimate comfort food, and the perfect dish for a crowd. Chili is also a great way to use leftover roast beef or pork loin, or even turkey from that big holiday meal.
There are many variations when it comes to making chili. I prefer beef, beans and red chili peppers with just enough spice to make your head sweat and your nose run. The key is preparing the chili by cooking the meat first then adding all of the other ingredients. If you cook everything together, you will end up with a pot of chili that tastes like tomatoes and hot peppers; not what we’re going for here.
You will need: 1 pound of lean ground beef, 1/2 pound of chopped smoked sausage (I use Kielbasa), 4 small cans of tomato sauce (8 ounces each), 1 large can of diced tomatoes (28 ounces), 2 cans of pinto beans drained and rinsed, 1 can of black beans drained and rinsed, 1 large onion chopped fine (be sure to remove all outer skin before chopping), 6 cloves of garlic minced or pressed through a garlic presser, 3 tablespoons of Chili powder, 2 tablespoons of cumin powder, 3 dried red chili peppers cut into pieces (or
The Guajillo chili is a mild chili pepper, with a hint of berry and citrus. It can be used in many different ways such as soups, sauces, and stews.
The Guajillo chili originates from Mexico, where it is very popular in their cuisine. The peppers are long, narrow and smooth with a bright red color resembling the color of strawberries or cherries.
Guajillo chilis are usually sold dried, but also seen occasionally fresh. They have an average Scoville rating of 2500-5000 units.
The Guajillo chili has a flavor similar to cranberries or berries mixed with grassy notes and have an earthy aroma.
