Wick Fowler's Chili - Rick's Version

Total Time
1hr 15mins

Basically I just measured the ingredients in the package and substituted fresh onion and garlic. I usually mix up several of these and store them in ziplock bags to use later.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown hamburger meat and drain off fat.
  2. Return to heat, add onion and garlic, cook until onion is softened.
  3. Add tomato sauce, tomatoes, and water.
  4. Stir in dry ingredients except masa harina.
  5. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or longer for spicier flavor.
  6. Add masa harina dissolved in water.
  7. Stir in pinto beans.
  8. Simmer another 20 minutes.

True Wick Fowler's chili would NEVER contain beans, just like REAL genuine Texas chili!

OH NO! Please tell me you didn't ruin a Texas classic by adding beans? Otherwise this IS the best chili, ever!

I posted a review before my email confirmation. If you get it, either omit it or add the 8 oz. tomato sauce and two cans water. Thank you.
