No Beans About It…

Feeling bored and trying to lighten up my blog posts here I figured I would put my grandmother’s awesome chili recipe here for any of you guys to try.  All this cold weather has me wanting to make a big pot of it.  It has one 2nd place in out church chili cook-off a few years back.  I like it because it doesn’t have any beans in it and it has celery in it.

Mama’s famous chili:

  • Brown and drain 2 lbs lean hamburger meat
  • Add the following ingredients
  • 1 Chopped Bell Pepper
  • 1 Chopped Onion (medium)
  • 2-3 stalks of celery chopped up
  • 2 – 14 oz cans of Tomato Sauce
  • 2 – cans of orignal Rotel Chopped Tomato’s and Peppers
  • 1 – 8oz Can of Tomato Paste
  • 1 – 14 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 Table Spoon of White vinager
  • Add 3-4 teaspoons of Chili Powder as spicy as you like it.
  • Add 1 Teaspoon of Ground Cumin
  • For an extra kick you can add a dash of Red Cayenne Pepper and some chopped up Jalapeno’s

Let it all simmer on Med to Med-Lo for a few hours (the longer the better) and serve it up hot with some crackers and a baked potato.  If you get daring you can load your potato with chili and cheese and top it off with some Frito’s brand corn chips.
