Format: Paperback
This book came out in 1980 at the start of the Chili Craze. Contests were being held all over the US for best chili. Every weekend you could find a Chili Cook-off or Chili Tasting anywhere from hot-pepper-hating New England to 12-alarm-fire-chili-loving Texas. Even the Simpsons ended up doing a chili cook-off spoof (The Guatemalan Insanity Pepper episode is really great animation and very funny, too.)
I have made many of the chilis in the book, going so far as to buy the required chili pequenos, chili colorado and other special chilis in the recipes. Yes, they make a difference. And the book even has Cincinnati 5-Way Chili, which purists will scorn as "not REALLY chili" but which is addictive and great for guests who hate hot spices. (5-way chili is a slighty sweet, cinnamon spiced chili probably influenced by Middle-East immigrants in Cincinnati. It is served 2-way, 3-way or 5-way with onions, beans, cheese, and spaghetti. It's fun for kids, who can make up their own garnished dish.) The Texas Style hot chilis are really gorgeous. This is one of my all-time favorite books and I don't think in 20 years, anyone has really written a better book on chili than Jane Butel.

A key focus is that genuine clili gets it's main flavor from authentic "chiles." All the recipes appear to be excellent, however if you are a low-fat person, this is probaly not the book for you.

If you just want chili, get the 1st edition Jan. 22 2012
By D B Crisp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Before you buy make sure you get the correct version. Whilst the 2nd version is ok, it goes too far beyond chili, I mean you have typed CHILI into the search engine and looked up this particular book right? The 2nd edition has too many supplementary things when all you need as a side for chili is rice, chopped onions/tomatoes and a nice cold drink.

I really enjoy this book as it is simple and whilst slow, a great winter warmer. And everything tastes nicer the next day so keep that in moind when making a big batch! i have the 1st ed which only has the chili recipes and nothing else, its a nice small softcover book which takes up not much room and gives me chili and nothing else. Great book.

If you like chili May 12 2007
By John W. Payne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought two of these books for me and my brother. He had one before but lost it. I have tried several of the recipes along with the suggestion to use fresh or dried chile pods for the chili. Some of the best chili I ever had. Also got rave reviews from my family. If you and your family really like chili, I highly recommend this book.
