I know, my buddy gives me a lot of grief over it. He tells me, I just made bean soup, I tell him, he's just jealous

Re: Chili Recipe


I made two pots this week. One using my old original recipe, which was really tasty btw. And one using a can of sweet corn like I saw someone else on here posted. Have to say the corn added a nice somewhat sweet taste and was nice for a change.

My mother used to make a variety which had peeled tomatoes and elbow macaroni in it. It was good but different.

Re: Chili Recipe


I always question the use of ground beef in real chili. Originally chili was supposedly cooked by people out on the road over a camp fire. - Where did they get ground beef since there were no supermarkets to sell some kind of "meat" and pink slime in a plastic tube.

I assumed they just used some rough cut or diced meat because it cooked faster, but the dried beans did take some time to soften up to be eaten.

Where did they get the shredded cheese or sour cream to dab on the top? I guess Cincinnati chili over spaghetti was made by the Italian cowboys.

Re: Chili Recipe


Our meat processor will grind beef or sausage with a "course grind" specifically for chili. One of the perks of buying a whole steer and having it butchered. Any of you guys that haven't had good grain fed beef are missing the boat. No GMO's or hormones in the beef and we do pay extra for it.

I buy 2 steers a year, and the hanging weight typically is 625 or so, and then we spread it across my daughter, son, and my freezer. Meat for a year. Steaks, roasts, hamburger, ribs, stew meat, brisket, cut the way you like it. Last time I priced beef in the store, I think my way is still more expensive, but can't be the quality or taste.

I first saw this in the supermarket when I was 8. That's when my dad taught me about fire department terminology.

I make a vegetarian chili. Not necessarily because I am a vegetarian but it's because it's really good.

I start out with Morningstar Farms frozen soybean breakfast sausage patties. I use the entire 6-pack and heat them up in the pot using 2 tablespoons of oil and break them up as they get soft and brown.

Then I add 2 16oz. cans of kidney beans, a 32 oz can of steamed tomatoes, 1-2 bay leaves, a little bit of taragon, a 1 oz. package of McCormick Chili Powder. I'll dice up an onion, a green pepper, a clove of garlic, and 5-6 celery stalks and throw it all in the pot.

If by this time too much of the water evaporated, I'll add just enough water to cover everything and make it soupy and let it cook for at least 45 minutes to an hour on medium heat.
