This is the Hormel Five-Alarm Chili Cook-Off prize winning recipe from firefighter Jason Yamamoto, St. Paul, MN, Station 8. He won $5000 for the fire department. I have not made this, but I think firehouse recipes are fun.

  1. Heat skillet over medium heat (hot enough to get a sizzle from the meat).
  2. Brown ground beef.

  4. Return meat to large stockpot.
  5. Add Hormel Chili, chili beans, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato paste, habanero pepper and chopped onion.

  7. Add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper to taste.
  8. Simmer over medium heat for 1 hour.
