Chili Recipe

08 August 2005

I made a bit of chili a couple weeks ago over the fire, and it came out pretty well, so I wrote it down to make it my official recipe.

John's Chili (8 qt)

  1. Over medium heat (dutch oven 6 inches over coals), brown beef with 1 tbsp chili powder. Don't drain grease.
  2. Add tomato sauce, diced tomatos, beans.
  3. Chop and add fresh tomato, onion, and peppers.
  4. Add minced garlic, and other seasonings, including more chili powder, to taste.
  5. Adjust heat to boil slowly covered or uncovered, depending upon desired thickness.
  6. Stir occassionally, taste liberally, adjust, repeat.
  7. It'll probably cook for up to 2 hours.

Thanks to Stacey for photodocumenting the process.
