The Last Chili Recipe You Will Ever Need To Make

December 8th

I forgot to post this one yesterday. December 7th!

This is a very simple chili recipe but might be the best one I've ever eaten. If you are having a big group over to help trim the tree, whip up a pot of this.

Saute' a large diced onion and 5 diced celery sticks in a few tablespoons of bacon grease and olive oil.

Add a couple diced green peppers.

Stir it all together and cook for another minute.

Add two pounds of ground meat and cook breaking it up until it is browned.

Add 3 tablespoons of cumin.

Add 3 tablespoons of granulated garlic.

I use CaBoom as one of my seasonings. You can find this at: I usually make my own seasonings but when I am in hurry, I think this is the best.

I also add 2 tablespoons of hot Mexican chili powder.

And some regular chili powder too, about 4 tablespoons.

Mix in all of the spices.

Add a can of crushed tomatoes.

Add 2 cups of tomato juice.

A can of kidney beans.

And a can of black beans. You can use any kinds of beans that you like.

Stir in a good grinding of black pepper. This is about 2 tablespoons.

Add 3 tablespoons of oregano.

Add 2 tablespoons of sugar.

Add some cayenne pepper. Make it as hot as you wish. I used about 1/4 tsp. and it had a slight after burn.

Add 1 tsp. of salt.

Place the pot, covered, in a 325 degree oven for an hour.

Serve it with a bit of rice or just plain. If I had fresh cilantro or parsley, I would have sprinkled it over the top but alas, I was out!

My husband's specialty has always been his chili. Hope he won't be too offended when I use this recipe and take over the throne.
This is very much the way I make my chili, except I have not heard of CaBoom. I'll have to try that. This is going to be perfect with my new batch of Cheddar/Jalapeno No Knead Sour Dough Bread that I have working. You are wonderful!

That chili sounds like it has a bit of a kick to it :) I love chili but unfortunately my husband doesn't care for it too much.

I love, love, love chili. When I was in weight watchers, I got a great recipe from my leader with turkey sausage and sweet potatoes which has become a fav., but this one looks so classic I'll have to try it. I'll even get the Muir Glen! Haven't had that brand since I had my food co-op in the country. L
Yum! There's nothing better than chili on a a "chilly" day. I will definitely be trying this out! Theresa

Looks yummy Jaz, but probably too spicy-hot for my tum-tum, but I bet anything my beau would LOVE it!

Being done as I write! This better be good, because I'm hungry! Wait! What did I say? This better be good? I'm insane. You've NEVER made anything that wasn't good. Forgive me. I'm a lowlife, a hungry lowlife... Thanks for sharing... Oh, could I put this recipe in my second solar cookbook?
