“Five alarm” or mild, nothing satisfies like a bowl of piping hot chili. Chili can be made from almost any meat. Beef, turkey, or wild game, chili warms from the inside and sticks to your ribs. This recipe is easy to make, freezes great, and gets better with each reheating.

Preparing this one pot wonder is easy and fun, just follow these simple steps and a hearty meal will be waiting for you after a cold day outside. A good chili shouldn’t be loaded up with too many ingredients, keep it simple. Chili needs to cook a LONG time! The best gauge will be your celery, when it dissolves, the chili is ready. Cut and chop all your ingredients before starting to cook. You can use your meat either ground or cubed. Chili is a great way to finish off frozen meat that you may have left in the freezer just a little too long.

3 lbs of meat..It’s not worth making less; just freeze what you don’t eat

2 sweet onions...diced...they will cook down to nothing

Celery...sliced, ½ as much as the onions

any commercial chili spice package..One package per pound

(you can mix you own spices but it’s so much easier this way)

a dash of your favorite hot sauce, make it spicier at the table, not in the pot

one can whole tomatoes, crush them in your hand and drop in

8 oz hearty tomato soup, NOT concentrate

dark kidney beans (these will need to have been soaked overnight in water)

in a large deep pot, brown the meat on high temperature, stir in the onions

stir often as you add each ingredient. Wait a minute or so between each item.

add everything in the above order!

next comes the celery, stir in the spice, then add a little hot sauce

crush in the tomatoes one at a time, then mix in the soup, finally add the beans.

Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for several hours, stirring often. Ladle into a bowl and top with shredded cheddar cheese. We always put several hot sauce varieties on the table so each person can find their personal spice groove.
