    I will man up. Work on making a real chili.
    My friend you have to understand chili is big here, and I could not let your post go unchallenged. Yes pre made and add beans can be ok !

    I have made chili using, deer, wild pig, tame pig, goat, chicken, beef of every cut ground and shredded, tho I do like using cooked and shredded brisket.

    To bean or not to bean ?

    Raging debate !

    I like and make both, but when using beans I usually stay with pinto or reds.

    And all from scratch when it comes to the dry mixture tho I do use fresh onions by preference.

    A story comes to mind of my oil patch days, the co that I worked for sent me to buffalo ny to a customer that bought one of our free water knock out tanks that were having problems with it when they turned into it. Come to find out the water was fresher with less salt so the gravity was lower. So I was sent up to install a weir plate and adjust for the gravity of the water oil interface.

    Very shallow wells, young couple picked me up from the hotel and the job was done within 40 min after I was on location. I mentioned or asked about Niagara falls and how far it was. And they promptly bundled me up and off we went!

    Went over the international bridge, me in a large black stetson hat with boots with a old no arms insulated vest, green if I recall!

    To the Canadian side of the falls, and I took a peek at the falls and then we drank some very fine Canadian beer and had a fine old time for several hours.

    Now the chili thing , during our talks the guy asked about chili, it seems up in Yankee land at the time he could not find any good chili mixes, and he and his wife had a love for 3 alarm chili mix! That they could not find anywhere!

    (note: before Internet)

    I told them I had them covered !

    And when I got back to midland , told the boss and we bought a couple of cases of 3 alarm mix and shipped it to them.. Made them very happy campers, and bought some more equipment, along with a L.A.C.T and glycol gas dehydration unit that I flew up and setup for them..

    This all happened in 1982 iir.

    I like chilli, we call it con carne. I like it with beans, kidney ones, I guess that means red beans. I usually use a packet of chilli flavour from the local mex food company. Just right. Then it's either chilli and rice (red beans and rice) or tacos with some cheese, salads and tobasco. I'd be interested to try a couple of those cook off recipe's and see the difference.

    Nothing really to teach, now that the web has tons of info. Everyone will develope their own personal choice of what they like.

    None of it can be taught, it is a learned thing by doing and trying.

    Basic ingredients other than chili powder is hotly debated along with adding tomatoes and or beans!

    Even adding tomatoes and or paste can get a fight going with some that do and others that do not!

    Me?

    I probably break all the imagined rules and it seems no two pots are the same and all are a tad different every time I make a mess/pot of the stuff.

    But I will say when I do I make massive quantity's of it and usually freeze most but eat a few days every meal digging in. Then drag out the frozen stuff as wanted.

    Best I can do is give you this link and let you play as you wish mixing and matching..

    One thing that is a rule for me, my chili is spiced hot out of the yen yang, using the hottest peppers I can find at the time.

    Chili is best served in a bread basket at 9,000 feet in Alta, Utah.
