Making Awesome Chili

Here's the secret to awesome chili! Gather all your spices and add them in when you are browning the ground beef, steak or whatever meat you use. The spices will fully dissolve and the fat from the meat is incorporated, giving the chili much better flavor. Try it once and you'll never make chili the old way again!

MY MOTHER USED TO USE CINNAMON AND STRONG COFFEE IN HER CHILI RECIPE - IT WAS GOOD!

I can't wait to try this!! I wrote it down in the back of one of my recipe card spiral notebooks which I keep the best tips written down on. I am guessing this would be the same for tacos, spaghetti and such too. Just got to make sure I don't drain off the grease before I add the spices.

I don't know about anyone else but I've got to drain the hamburger meat!

About draining- when I use ground round or ground chuck I don't usually have to drain. There is very little fat. However, I remember going to a gathering where the hostess made sloppy joes. The ground beef wasn't browned and drained, but was cooked in a crock pot with sloppy joe sauce all day, and when they put the sloppy joe mixture on a bun the sauce was swimming in grease. I guess it just depends on the grade of hamburg used.
