DIRECTIONS

  • In a large dutch oven,brown ground beef until well cooked.
  • Drain any extra fat or water from meat.
  • On a medium-low temperature, add tomato sauce, tomato paste, chili beans, seasoning packets, and water to pot.
  • Mix well, and continue to cook on medium low for a minimum of one hour, covered, stirring frequently to prevent burning.
  • In the meantime, peel potatoes and cut into "bite size" pieces.
  • Place potatoes in large dutch oven and cover with water, and add salt to taste.
  • Cook on high heat and boil potatoes (about 7 minutes once they come to a boil) just until they will break in half with a fork stuck into them. You don't want to over cook them because they will be mushy when you put them into the chili, and they will cook a bit after you put them in the chili.
  • Drain potatoes well.
  • Add potatoes to chili.
  • Mix well and continue to cook over LOW heat for an additional 30 minutes.
  • Stir frequently to avoid burning on bottom.
  • Serve whenever you are ready with bread and butter or "Snowflake Rolls" as my family does by the dozen!
