Clyde's Famous Chili
photo by Unknown U.
- Ready In:
- In a heavy bottomed pot, saute the onion and garlic in the vegetable oil until golden brown.
- Add the beef to the onions and cook until it is about medium rare. Do not stir the beef around too much-you want to have large clumps of beef in the finished chili.
- Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until just blended. (It may seem like a lot of chili powder but that's why they call it chili!).
- Cook the chili over medium heat for about 10 minutes, just until the meat is fully cooked. Don't overcook it!
- Serve with ice cold beer and condiments like sharp cheddar cheese, sour cream, and minced onions.

We've made this chili several times now and it's become an easy favorite. Really quick to put together and eat right away, even better reheated the next day, my daughter has been making this on her own since she was seven. She prefers it with ground turkey, but is happy to use ground beef as well. I can leave everything in the pantry and just make sure I have frozen packs of ground meat, so it's always an available comforting meal. Thanks Oolala!!

<p>I've collected recipes since I was a teen. After all these years I'm trying to get all my index cards and clippings, that still sound interesting to me, posted here so that I can find them and eventually make them! <br /> <br />I've posted some of my Mom's recipes. I regret not having paid more attention to my Grandmothers' cooking. They made some dishes that I miss and there were/are no recipes for them. <br /> <br />I have a wonderful DH and 2 wonderful sons. They are thrilled that I found this site since they directly benefit from it! Before finding 'Zaar, I was less of a cook and more of a recipe collector but now I try many more things and we're having more fun in the kitchen (at least I am)! <br /> <br />Thanks for all your ratings, comments and help in the forums AND for posting so many great recipes. You've enhanced my cooking skills and expanded my horizons! I've learned so much. <br /> <br />For fun, I also like to read fiction, travel, see movies and shows, shop (and I love to browse thrift shops and rummage/garage sales for cookbooks, etc.). <br /> <br />The discovery of a new dish does more for the happiness of mankind than the discovery of a new star Brillat-Savarin</p>
