Recipe by NC Griller

One of the best chili recipes I have found. Makes a big pot so invite your friends. The key to good chili is making sure you buy the best ground beef, preferably from a supermarket that grinds their own. It really does make a big difference.

  1. In a 6- to 8-quart Dutch oven, cook meat, onion, celery and garlic until meat is brown and onion is tender; drain.
  2. Stir in undrained chili beans, tomato sauce, undrained tomatoes, chili powder, and the 1 tablespoon bottled hot pepper sauce.
  3. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 2 hours.
  4. Serve chili over hot cooked macaroni. If you like, top with sour cream, cheddar cheese, and green onions, and pass additional hot pepper sauce.
