Found a recipe for chili using Chuck meat cut into cubes. For years I've only used ground meat. Which do you use?
Do you think the Chuck is more authentic? Any tips or suggestions?

We have made chili both ways, with ground beef and with cubed beef. My husband prefers it with ground beef, I prefer it with the cubed beef. I was told years ago that chuck is more authentic but I don't have anything to verify that. I'd give it a try and see which way you prefer.

Both and and/or? Depends on the flavor profile I'm going after. Here's a recipe I put on the site that I make often: https://food52.com/recipes...
Tried the chuck steak chili recipe and the meat flavor was outstanding. Reminds me of meals we've had had Mexican restaurants. Today I'm going to take pieces of the meat and make a burrito.
This is a delicious recipe but my ground beef chili is more to my liking.
This recipe would be great using the meat for burritos, enchiladas, nachos, terrific flavor and the meat is flavorful and incredibly tender.
I'm not a vegetarian but I really don't like meat of any kind in chilie. I live in the Midwest and it's still 90 degrees so it's the last thing I'm thinking about now. But, when my garden is on it's last legs in a month or so I make a great multi bean chillie with peppers and tomatoes from my garden.
We too have had an incredibly hot, smoky (due to wild fires) summer. We had the hottest August on record, so I welcome these cooler days and made chili to celebrate!
You're fortunate your garden is still thriving, MMH. The extreme temperatures took a toll on everything no matter how much watering we did. I have about a cup of cherry tomatoes remaining. 🙁
