So Ryzhaya and I are doing a chili cook-off with friends and tomorrow is the judging day so I've been thinkin' chili for a while. I created my own green recipe that doesn't use anything canned really (just chicken broth), took about 2.5 hours actually doing stuff over 3 days to get it done. The ingredients list is a bit sparse as I went with what we had and we changed things in the process of making the chili and I tried to change the recipe to match what we actually did.
If you can't find Anaheim chilis, they are also known as california chilis, and if you can't find them under that name either, you can use poblano chilis in a 2 poblanos = 3 anaheims substitution. All peppers should be seeded before they are used even if the step doesn't say anything about that, but tomatillos you don't try to seed as that would be crazy and anyhow they are all blended before they are used.
We cooked up bacon the day before we started this and saved the bacon fat so that all frying could be done in bacon fat not just vegetable oil.
The 3 day cook thing is not at all necessary or anything, I did it as a 3 day cook because chili is always best after the flavors develop for a day or two, so I made the recipe up to have a built-in flavor-developing time.
edit: oh yeah, if you want to change the spiciness, you can tone it down by swapping some of the serranos for jalapenos or by leaving some out, or you can increase the heat by swapping some of the jalapenos for serranos
