Ragin Blaze chili seasoning. Cajun Blake can hook you up. You won’t be disappointed.
That reminds me- I need to order some more.

I use a modified Hank Shaw recipe. But the main thing is to use the pureed dried chiles instead of chili powder. I use ancho, cascabel, pasilla, and chipotle. It adds so much more flavor. It's a game changer, you wont ever go back to chili powder.

Still haven't tried Cajun Blakes recipe.

Best one I have ever made, and the one I have seen the most TBH'ers try.

The spice level is low to low-mid imo. In my Shiner Bock Ragin Blaze dress up above I add dried chipoltle to give it a little more pop...and my wife who is a mild food eater says it is fine that way. A little bit of heat that doesn't stick with you.. So without the chipotle, I'm betting you would be easily in the clear because my wife is a hot food sissy...

I’m sold! Over the last 9 years I’ve slowly been secretly building her tolerance and adding more spice to things but it has to be subtle!

I use Wick Fowler's False or one alarm chili mix. Kids love it. Cook a pot of beans separate for those that want to mix.

What Smart said.
I add jalapeños, serrano peppers, and whatever other peppers I find to kick it up.

We entered a small chili cookoff last year. Me, Hoyt Man, and my future bother in law each entered a team. My fiancé didn’t even cook, but entered a team. She took a scoop out of each of our 3 pots and turned it in and won first place. Lol
I won 2nd with Blake’s recipe.

At the risk of being ridiculed, try this recipe. I don't know that I would call it your typical chili due to the ingredients, but it is really good. We use venison instead of the beef and reduce the ingredients by half if you don't need 20 servings. It also doesn't leave you feeling as bloated as other recipes.


INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound yellow onions coarsely chopped
1 pound sweet Italian sausage removed from casings
4 pounds beef chuck ground
1 can tomato paste - (12 oz)
1½ tablespoons minced garlic
⅓ cup ground cumin
½ cup chili powder
¼ cup Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons dried basil
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1½ tablespoons salt or to taste
1½ tablespoons freshly-ground black pepper
3 cans Italian plum tomatoes - (28 oz ea) drained
¼ cup dry red wine
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
¼ cup chopped fresh dill
¼ cup chopped parsley
2 cans dark-red kidney beans - (16 oz ea) drained
2 cans pitted black olives - (5½ oz ea) drained (optional)
PREPARATION
Heat the olive oil in a very large pot. Add the onions and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 15 minutes. Add the sausage meat and ground chuck; cook over medium-high heat, stirring, until the meats are well browned. Spoon off any excess fat and discard. Stir in the tomato paste, garlic, cumin, chili powder, mustard, basil, oregano, salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes, wine, lemon juice, dill, parsley and kidney beans. Stir well and simmer, uncovered, for another 15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings. Add olives; simmer for 5 minutes more to heat through. Serve immediately. This recipe yields 20 servings.

This looks really good, going bro try it

And I wouldn’t put much thought into the opinion of someone that doesn’t put beans in chili
