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.

In addition to the great recipes, this book gives you some history of chili along with some great black and white pictures.

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.

A Chili Classic Dec 5 2006
By 'MaryLou Cheatham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
CHILI MADNESS, A PASSIONATE COOKBOOK BY JANE BUTEL, is as hot as a bowl of her chili. CHILI MADNESS contains more than 35 of the recipes for chili that she has collected. Each recipe has a little story about the source of the recipe. The book is red-hot reading.

Even more interesting than the recipes is "The Irresistible Passion" at the beginning of the book. This section contains:

· Origins of the Bowl of Blessedness, a fascinating historical account of the birth of chili

· Chili Makings, a primer with pictures of types of chiles, an explanation of preparation of chiles, and a discussion of other common chili ingredients

· Basic Training - Methods to Chili Madness, a basic chili cooking lesson

· Chili Cookoffs, essential information about the social skills of chili cooking contests

CHILI MADNESS is a classic that every American cook needs.

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.
