There hasn't been one as of yet, certainly seems like a worthwhile goal!

I love chili! hate the fire shits. I have no idea how to make it that real chili anyway? great thread beasty! you don't have to be a bachelor to do these things. my grandmother canned everything up until a couple years ago when my grandfher died....I'd love to just need to get some free time and a pressure cooker. My wife is all into it as we're trying to feed the baby all natural and mostly organic, and that baby food is $$$...

You bet. Id enter my 5 alarm 3 day ass burn chili. I'm the only one in my house that will eat it (sweating the whole time), too spicy for the wife and kids.:lol:

Beast you are right, It seems that all sauces,chili's and soups do taste better the longer they are stored properly.

:lol: :lol: I know I won't be taste testing that for sure. OUCH. Btw excellent Write up and great advise there Beastmaster. :eusa_clap

1 10oz can tomatoes and green chilies (ro*tel is good)
1 TBSP tomato paste
1 10oz can well drained hominy/posole

I think, out of all the threads I've made on this site, this is the one I check back on the most.

Getting ready to make another batch, nothing to add to the above recipes other than its worth repeating again and again!
