  1. I like Beans in my Chili as well,.. Without it, it might as well be Hotdog sauce

  2. I just made the stuff shells and now i gotta go back to the store this weekend to do this! Lol

  3. Looks absolutely delicious, brother AB. It's an awesome cook. ????????????

  4. Hey just found/joined your channel man I’m loving the content, everything broke down simple. Not just here but on other videos too, make me feel like I can make anything. Thanks for the great content and dinner ideas. Really trying to cook only at home and save money and this channel is gonna make that so much easier!!

  5. I love to make chili and yes I use beans that I cook myself not the can ones!!! I watch your channel regularly but my first time posting. Keep up the good work ????

  6. You call that a "little bit" of cinnamon ?? Holy smoke ! I just throw a full stick in and pull it out at the end and it's strong

  7. In Texas, old school style, we call chili without beans, smooth velvety cheese with diced white onions over fritos in the bag, a "Frito Pie"????????

  8. Whats in the level up b? Can you make an alfredo? By the way I won a contest with your peach cobbler. Plus I enjoy the best of both worlds. I make 1 dish once a week. Awesome cook you and Mr make it happen.

  9. I don't know what benefit preheating a crock pot would bring. So I don't.

  10. FYI: To those who don't use beans. Chilis MAIN ingredient is beans. If you add meat, it's called chili con carne. If there are no beans, then it CAN'T be classified as chili, but just ground beef in sauce.

  11. ???? Thanks A.B. you're chilly looks delicious . I'll have to try the cinnamon . Some times I eat chili with beans . And some time I don't . This is how we like . To eat are chili . Fritos , onion and cheese . It's called a Frito pie . You and family enjoy your dinner .????????????????????????

  12. Good evening AB
    I’m a proud supporter!!

  13. ATK gave a quick food chemistry pro tip on their chili video and we learn that the spices used in chili are oil soluble and add huge amounts of flavor. Just stir it before serving. However, they used 85% lean so not as much rendered fat and maybe removing a little (not all) from 80/20 wouldn't be taking too much away. Also, mixing the meat in a mixture of 2 Tbsp of water, 1-1/2 tsp of salt & 3/4 tsp of baking soda and letting it sit for about 20 minutes is supposed to help the meat brown faster. Although I didn't notice much when I tried it. YMMV…
    Add some 70% – 80% Cacoa as it simmers. Maybe you did it on one of your other chili videos. It gives the chili a silky shiny texture and the flavor is awesome. I'll dump in a bottle of Modelo or Tecate or your beer of choice for the liquid. Sabroso!!

  14. Looks amazing!! What's the difference between chives and green onions?

  15. i make my chili almost the exact same!! i serve mines with a peanut butter sandwich on the side ????

  16. AB your chili looks perfect to me, I just don't like pasta in mine. Cinnamon is that secret BAM!! ????☘️????????
