I'm not sayin' ... I'm just sayin' ...

How are you a "Professional Chef", in need of a recipe for “chili with meat” (chili con carne)?!? I kinda think this is something like "Cooking 101".

Here is a whole thread for you all:

"CHILI" Recipes ... Post'em Up - Show Us What 'Ya Got

Here's my recipe (feel free to rip it)

3# small cubed meat of choice (I go w/ a cut on sale)
3# ground 85% meat of choice (it doesn't have to be the same meat)

1 coffee cup chili seasonings (shook up to the bageebies in a Gatorade bottle w/ 1 beer)
* Don't balk here. I get the stuff from a guy I met on the Air Force base in Alamogordo New Mexico. It's authentic stuff, along the flavor lines of Shelby's or 6-Gun seasonings, but real and not loaded w/ extra salt or other junk.
2 cups sweet onion, coarse mince
2 cups sweet green pepper, coarse mince
2 cups shredded carrots
2 cups celery, coarse mince (* the leaves in the heart are loaded w/ flavor)
1 fistful chopped cilantro
1 really big can of Brooks Chili Hot Beans
1 really big can of Red Gold Mexican Fiesta diced tomatoes
1 coffee cup masa flour (again shook up in the G bottle w/ another beer)
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 more bottle of beer to rinse everything out and thin up the chili so it's not concrete

Everything goes into a big kitchen pot, in order, stirring every time, and cooks up at medium heat to a good heavy simmer. Turn down the heat, cover the pot, let simmer to the texture of your choice. For me, that's about 1/2 hour-45 minutes. You gotta stir so that it doesn't get nasty on the bottom.

You can add minced onions and/or cheese on top, but it's not required. You can serve this chili over some type of pasta, but don't do it while I'm looking. My chili is served with either corn-bread or tamales, but that's for another thread.

@IceMan, yeah, tried those and then some, they're not it.

I have the list of ingredients (from the frozen version I brought back from Hawaii) and I've been trying for the past, oh, maybe 5-6 years to get the proportions down...
