Okay, I've posted in a bunch of threads, but this is the first thread I've ever started (and yes, you neg-bangers make me nervous doing so). The reason I started it is I figure a lot of you are tailgaters and probably have some awesome chili recipes. The other reason is, we are having a chili cookoff the first week of November here at work and there is a guy I HAVE GOT TO BEAT!
Said guy I've worked with for 9-years. Up until 2 years ago you would never know he had any sports affiliation whatsoever. That was until the new City Administrator and HR Director started - both big time Sparty fans. All of a sudden, said guy starts wearing MSU crap to work all of the time. Today, he's wearing a Sparty hat and a Sparty windbreaker. He is our very own super trooper kiss ass.
He's won the contest the last three years. I will admit, he makes a great chili, I even got his recipe from him and have made it several times. It's a mixture of hamburger and sausage, great stuff. But it's time that he be beat. There are usually about 30 entries, so it's very possible. There is no prize for winning, no monetary gain, nothing, other than the fact that you had the winning chili for the cookoff.
I know this isn't the food network, and I know I can go google some chili recipes, but I'm looking for the tried and great chili recipes from hopefully a bunch of people who have a great recipe. And remember - it's all for shuting down a MSU fan!
