Laurent Tourondel’s BLT Chili

11 February 2010 2,010 views Add a Comment

Chili is one of those foods that is easy to experiment with. The ingredients are cheap, it’s pretty hard to screw it up and it’s fairly intuitive to rescue if you do mangle it. Someone pointed me to Laurent Tourondel’s recipe for  BLT Chili at Food and Wine a while back and it’s become my baseline for chili experimentation. The biggest secret to this recipe is to use pork sausage – especially sausage with lots of fennel seed. I love fennel, and I’m thinking about adding even more fennel seed to the spice mixture on my next go round.

My biggest variation to the recipe is to use a good dark beer in place of most, if not all, of the water. Nothing goes better with chili than beer, so you might as well add the beer while you cook!

Follow the links to Food and Wine for the recipe. If you have any chili secrets, let us know about them in the comments!
