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!
