After some carefully research I have combined every camping chile recipe on the internet and created the following infographic.
Here is a pdf version for easy printing
Below is the same information with a couple of embellishments.
Throw the following in a pot, bring to a boil and then simmer for 30 minutes.
one pound of cooked ground meat (beef, chicken, turkey, pork, venison or other or maybe in combination. if it is greasy meat, drain it. If you are a vegetarian you can skip the meat part and add an extra can of beans.
A Cooked Onion
Chop (1) onion and cook it up in some oil. If the meat you chose is fatty, you can cook the onion and the meat together. Use a large onion if like onions and a medium one if you are not a big fan. Optionally you can also chop and cook a poblano pepper, a green pepper or a bell pepper (but not a doctor pepper). This would also be a good place to mince and cook up 2 to 4 cloves of garlic if you like garlic.
Add (2) 15 oz cans from the following List.
Pork and Beans
Ranch Style Beans
Garbanzo Beans (chick-peas)
Great Norther Beans
Almost any Bean Really.
Corn (ok not a bean, but still fibrous)
Some people drain and rinse the beans, while others don’t. It’s chili so you really can’t go too wrong
To the pot add 1 or 2 Cans of Stewed Tomatoes, or diced tomatoes or tomato Soup or tomato paste or ketchup if you are really in a tomato bind.
2 tsp to 2 tbs of chili powder
1 to 2 tsps of cumin
Additional Optional spices
2 tsp Sugar
Salt and Pepper to Taste
1/2 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Paprika
Spicy But Not Spices...
1 Small Can Green Chili
if it look too thick to boil, add a little water... or a can of Beer.
