Food Holidays
This page is dedicated to National Chili Month and all the chili we eat on our hot dogs during National Hot Dog Month! Do you celebrate Food Holidays too? If so, this page will help fill your recipe box with even more chili con carne recipes! 

Definition of Chili con Carne:
Chili con carne (in America shortened to chili) is a spicy stew-like dish, the essential ingredients of which are beef, pork, venison, or other mature meat, and chili peppers. Variations, either geographic or by personal preference, include the addition of tomatoes, onions, beans, and other ingredients. (Brown sugar is often a favorite condiment). There are also many versions of vegetarian chili, also known as chili sin carne, made without meat (sometimes with a meat substitute). The name "chili con carne" is a slight corruption of the Spanish chile con carne, "chili with meat". Chili con carne is the official dish of the U.S. state of Texas.

Ingredients from video above:
240 g Red kidney beans
50 g Butter
2 tsp Olive oil
2 medium onions
2 garlic cloves
500 g minced (ground) beef
1 red (or green) pepper

This versatile easy recipe is a must for any cookbook.

Texas chili recipes
"Texas chilis are generally beef-based, use dried red chili peppers and are therefore red in color. They contain no beans and little or no vegetables other than the chili peppers.


New Mexico chili recipes
"The official state vegetable of New Mexico is the chili pepper and the official state question is "Red or green?" This refers to the decision New Mexican chili devotees must regularly make, and which engenders frequent discussion and argument. The red chili is simply a riper form of the green chili; the former is cooked in its dried form and the latter is used fresh from the field, with significant differences in results. For those who simply cannot decide, the standard reply is "Christmas", meaning a portion of each. New Mexico chilis are more commonly based on pork, and include more vegetables than Texas style chilis."

Other meat based chili recipes

Vegetarian chili
"Vegetarian chilis acquired wide popularity in the U.S. during the 1960s and 1970s with the rise of the vegetarian philosophy, and is also popular with those on diets which restrict red meat. To make a chili vegetarian, the meat is left out of the recipe or replaced with a meat analogue such as textured vegetable protein or tofu. Some people consider vegetarian chili to be a spicy vegetable stew, and not true chili."
