comment Suggested edible quantity/scaling of Habanero Pepper per pound of meat
the chili came out delicious, but the actual sweetness of the habanero just didn't come out. Perhaps they weren't fresh enough or came from a different region during this time of year, but both the heat/flavor from the peppers was pretty unsubstantial.

for anyone interested, With 5-6lbs of meat, 2 cans 14oz tomato sauce, and some water; it took 10 pureed habanero peppers to get a nice, non-burning heat (which seems like a lot but I think the chorizo fat really did tone it down). That is in addition to fresh home made chili powder via Alton Brown's recipe.

nice follow-up, I appreciate it. I really want to get as much sweet habenaero flavor without overpowering the chili. Given your bullets, I think I shall cube my chorizo heat it up to draw out some of the fat add the pureed habenaero(minus seeds and white flesh) and add that mixture into my browned cubed chuck : )

comment Why did my hot pepper oil get moldy?
I find taking the seeds and heating them in oil is great for drawing out the spice/flavor. That can be done and then added back in to the rest of the oil no?

thanks for the heads up on the effects w/o beans, my intent is to do 4lbs chuck 1lb pork bulk sausage 1lb chorizo all meat chili, so I definitely don't want it to reach blistering by adding too many to start.

so going for the bare minimum, is 1 pepper/lb too much or is that a reasonable starting point
