I grew up eating the chili in my father's restaurants. I love chili and I love this one! I do hope you'll try it. This recipe gives you the choice of ground meats or cubed meats. I for one love ground meat chili. I would tell every one who wants to make this to try the cubed meat type also, as it is so delish!! You can control the heat by the use of the red pepper flakes. This recipe calls for a stick of butter. Yes, that's right! If you don't intend to use the butter as stated, please pass on this recipe. It's to cook the cubed meat in. For the ground meat type, just drain the burger and just toss the stick of butter in, and continue on with the recipe. It's not a recipe for those who have health issues such as heart disease.The butter makes the chili, believe me. The beans are up to you as to which type and how many you want. I use a combination. Honestly, this whole recipe consists of brown the meat, and just dump the other ingredients in! That's it! Times will vary between the cubed meats and the ground meats.You can put the bean mixture in the pan that you cooked the ground meats in . It's up to you to put the types of beans that you like in this.Times will vary as well as quantity. At least try this chili one time with the cubed meat. This was how the recipe was supposed to be done.I adapted this recipe to be made with the ground beef and pork.You'll love it! For the sake of the omputer, if you are going to make the single batch,
I recommend that you use the little cans of beans, I think they are probably 4-6 oz., and that way you can use pintos, black, kidney or a combo of them.
A good batch of chili becomes a personal thing. This recipe was entered in a chili cook-off here in Las Vegas. It won first prize! This is great as is, or as I like to do, top each bowl with lots of cheese, onions and sour cream!
