DIRECTIONS

  • **A lot of the measurements are to taste.**.
  • Heat a large Dutch oven with some E.V. Olive Oil. Once hot, reduce heat to medium high & sauté garlic & onions until fragrant & slightly brown.
  • Add meat & brown.
  • Slowly add all of the liquids: V-8 Juice, Chicken Stock, dissolved Beef Bouillon, Liquid Smoke, Molasses, & Worcestershire Sauce.
  • Mix well.
  • Reduce heat to low & simmer for 5 -10 minutes.
  • Add tomatoes.
  • Add the spices: Chili Powder, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Cumin, & Allspice.
  • Cover Dutch oven & simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Add remaining ingredients.
  • Continue simmering until chili becomes thick & hearty (about an hour or more).
  • Be sure to taste throughout cooking process & feel free to add to the chili.
  • If chili becomes too salty, chop a potato into 8 large chunks & place into chili. The potatoes will absorb the extra salt.
  • Serve chili in bowls and dress with a fine layer of grated cheddar cheese, a dollop (spoonful) of sour cream, and serve with crackers.
