  • Obviously I said spidey on purpose, I'm a professional, I would never include a mistake like that in a final product. 😬

    • If you want to mix it up, my mum puts chunks of chorizo in the chilli, and beef chunks. Do know what kind put they're marbled very well.

    • Oh, spidey. I thought it was spite-y

    • Hey man love you show honestly. However one of the largest draw ins of your shows is the lack of plugs/ ads by the 3rd bounty plug i found myself wanting to turn you off (other 2 were hilarious) i know you need to make you money but dont loose yourself in the adds

    • You could literally commit a 2nd holocaust and i would still love your videos

    • You can do no wrong

  • I think the greatest thing about this channel is that I doubt most of us can even cook. We just enjoy chillin with daddy babish.

  • Babish: "I've even heard of people putting olives on their chili." Texans: "WHAT IN TARNATION?"

  • He said Chicken Stock but the box says Chicken Broth?

  • I love chili

  • If he gets sponsored by san marzono's tomato's that will be a dangerous episode.

  • Fun fact: a "myriad" is an actual number. It means "ten thousand."

  • I usually add a lbs of hot pork sausage, browned, to my chili con carne. Provides a nice heat and the beef/melody is really nice!

  • This is the most pleasant ad I’ve ever watched

  • Anybody else read "Coronavirus" Chilli?

  • These Bounty plugs are so cringey and I like it.

  • Anyone else read Coronavirus Chili for a sec?

  • I thought it said Coronavirus chilli

  • This is the perfect time of the year for chili... My most fondest memory was when I was 14. My mom had a get together, my friend and his parents came over and my mom served tater tots and chili... I combined a bowl with tater tots and chili, it was the best thing I had during the fall. I miss that time so much.

  • Sorry, dude. Hard times Cincinnati style chilli is the only type of chilli I've ever truly enjoyed.

  • that bounty ad moment 😂😂😂

  • I feel like babish asked bounty if they could sponsor him…

  • Old Babish would have made his own paper towels

  • Vinegar and peroxide in the same bottle or separately

  • You make a beef chili, no cumin? Wack.

  • Can Americans make food with out coming cheese on or in it ?

  • did he say..bouncy? at the end

  • 8:30 was when i realised what learning Macbeth in school will do to me

  • With 8 million subs only a fool wont sponser so I'm waiting for the Trojans sponsered episode because when in the kitchen safety first 😉

  • Made both chili’s. Added ground beef to my carnivore chili to add more meat to every bite. I also use some of the fat from the chuck roast to combine with the vegetable oil to cook the onion. With the vegetarian chili, I use both a small gold onion and a shallot in place of a large onion and I add a small handful of diced mushrooms. Biggest tip: DO NOT FORGET TO WEAR GLOVES FOR THE JALAPEÑOS! I did and it felt like I literally burnt the tips of my fingers. Also, thank you Bounty, the paper towels were especially helpful with these recipes!

  • This was both an informative, lovely teaching video and the best paper towel ad I ever have seen.

  • This is the first time in my life where i used the phrase "The Vegetarian option looks delicious."

  • I have a sudden urge to purchase a large pack of Bounty brand paper towels.

  • That vegetarian chili went in a direction I never imagined. Thank you for this video, Bounty.

  • I legit thought the title was coronavirus chili oml

  • >Chili doesn't belong to any one region *Rages in Texan

  • Why not a beef stock or other stocks on the carnivorous?

  • Why wouldn't you use beef stock instead of chicken stock?

  • He said that you could use the chili paste in a multitude of other recipes, anyone got any ideas?

  • I like to handle my Jalepenos sans gloves so I basically pepper spray myself when I take my contacts out

    • Huevos Rancheros (over easy eggs with the sauce poured over), Albondigas (meatball soup), Chlilaquiles (tortilla chips with the sauce poured over and cheese) and you can stew any vegetables or meats in it. Just fry it first in the pan of hot oil to bring out the flavor.

  • The quicker picker upper Bounty

  • I right-arrow skip past any mention of the sponsor. Too much product placement. And now back to the food =)

  • I honestly thought he was sponsored by toilet paper at first which would have worked well after eating a hella hot chilli

  • I'm surprised. For how professional Andrew's kitchen is, his stove doesn't seem to have its own igniter.

    • @Craig That makes sense, but it's still surprising to me considering igniters aren't an expensive part and the manufacturer doesn't really have pressure to cut costs in the first place since the range is such a niche and professional item to begin with.

    • It's a restaurant industrial Viking, and a fairly old one. They didn't have/need lighters because frankly once they're lit they stay that way literally for the day, going from one pan/pot to the next nearly entirely uninterrupted. He even has the flat-top iron for his, which is impressive (check out his video on White Castle burgers).


  • watching this knowing full well tham I am using ground beef and powdered chili mix from aldi

  • I thought that said coronavirus chili

  • Made the Vegetarian recipe for a friend, turned out amazing. Thank you Babish for the new hole in my heart.

  • needs noodles

  • Stupid question, where can I get dried chiles like these?

  • Yasss nooch!!!! Thank you for making a vegan chili :)

  • The only and only thing I can cook better than Babish? :)

  • Hey Babish! I've been making this chili for a while and sometimes when I make the chili paste, I end up with bits of dried chili floating around that I can't seem to get rid of. I know I could technically strain them out, but I would prefer to just get everything blended as fine as possible. How do you make sure that all the chilis get blended in really well into the paste?


  • But where is the recipe where we combine both?

  • coronoavirus chili? what the fuck? *looks closer* .....oh. whats wrong with me

  • Why does the tomato paste look like a tube of paint?

  • Watching this knowing my granmas chilli is the best in the world. You have tough competition

  • yummy vinegar and HYDROGEN-PEROXIDE - the crap used to bleach hair! that does not sound healthy man

  • I usually add jalapeños for the flavour since they’re so mild.

  • So glad this guys page is doing well. You deserve it.

  • I just watched a binging with babish hidden valley ranch ad to watch an in video binging with babish bounty ad. Get your money girl

  • I added too much cinnamon and now it tasted like the worlds worst cinnamon roll. Just gonna add onions, coriander seed, and garlic until it tastes better.

  • Or... cook up some ground beef and throw it in a crock pot with two cans of tomato paste. The end. Prep time: 45 seconds.

  • Can't even be mad at the plugs, done shamelessly and with levity - mucho entertaining

  • Chili looks so gross

  • I first read it as coronavirus chili lol

  • I thought the title said "coronavirus" 😢

  • "Whole lotta garlic..." 6 cloves? Bwahahahaha...

  • Careful, y'all. This is how I cracked my blender in half 🙄😂

  • Never before and never again will a video so heavily feature sponsor ads and be so utterly delightful at the same time.

  • 2:32 the way he said it reminded me of the winny the pooh meme where he's wearing the suit xd

  • I have been convinced to buy paper towel, but I will by Kirkland brand instead (Costco), not bounty lol

  • 4:22 directions unclear, accidentally became a member of the Fantastic 4 movie.... But it's a bad fantastic 4 movie

  • I've never even heard of half of these chilis - where can I get them from?

    • @John McPike Ah. Thank you. I'm not sure we have a single Mexican grocery store in the UK, sadly

    • Usually at a Mexican grocery store

  • But what if you combined them

  • Wait!.. who was the sponsor? I must have missed it..

  • hi

  • … I gotta try that veggie stock recipe

  • Veggie dishes are the test for a chef, imo. I like to use minimal ingredients, like nothing but lentils, fresh tomatoes, onion, carrots and garlic, chili peppers, a few spices and water + something to thicken with, then blend. That's close to dal, but play with those ratios, and you've got a nicely spicy tomato soup - just drop the lentils. Both dishes here look mouth watering. Never done Tejano chow, but I'll try chili con carne some day. Had some pretty hideous excuses of that dish in school.

  • Hey Andrew, I made this Texan chili con carne (the Bowl o' Red) and I followed your recipe without diverting anywhere as this was my first shot at making it so I wanted to know what you got and what I am aiming for. It turned out tasting a little herby. Not sour, not lacking meaty flavor, but I expected a lot more savoury than I got. If I hadn't known better I'd almost say it's an asian cuisine. Have I done anything wrong or is that the way it is supposed to taste, and if not, any suggestions on where I might've gone wrong?

  • "How dare he at a time like this! I don't care if this was posted in January, this is offensive." My gf .001 seconds after the video loaded

  • I made the vegetarian chili from this video and it was by far the best chili I've ever eaten. Several of my friends really enjoyed it too.

  • Im getting some shamwow vibes

  • Is yeast vegan?

  • From a genuine Texas chili connoisseur, I applaud your efforts regarding chili con carne, Andrew. That chili con carne would be perfect for the requisite diced onions, cheddar cheese and Fritos. This video gets a well deserved like, as I am already a subscriber. Keep up the good content!

  • I think it would nice to have a video that explains the difference between green chili, Texas chili, and Mediterranean chili.

  • Dude you just put cooked/fried meat with raw meat at 3:09. Won't it be poisonous as it is not recommended to put cooked meet along with raw meat.

  • this episode of Linus tech tips is brought to you by basics with babish.

  • The hilarious and crafty ways you slip the sponsorship in are top notch! I love everything about your channel and all of the HARD work you do.

  • A whole bulb of garlic in the vegetable stock and 6 or 7 cloves in the pot? HELL. YES.

  • The H in harina is silent. Great video!

  • Very nice!!

  • This has been the best advertisements in a EEclone video I've ever seen

  • I've never been so entertained by such a heavy handed sponsor I love it

  • Carnivorous Coronavirus ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?


  • If you're also doing video game foods make Chile con Pistoles from West of Loathing.

  • hi

  • I like how he encourages creativity but doesn’t leave us out there without a paddle by giving us a recipe to follow and start out with

  • Gloves For Cutting Peppers

  • Me: *uses chilli powder* Babish: *Proceeds to use 5 different dried smoked chilli's*

  • Bounty: do you trust me? Babish: with every cell of my body

  • you had me at correct use of 'myriad'

  • I read the title initially as "Coronavirus Chili" and wasn't surprised. ...this has gone on much too long.
