    Default Spicy Chili

    Spicy Chili

    Recipe Description
    This makes a pretty big batch of chili. I'd say 10 or 12 good sized servings.
    Preparation Steps:
    In a large pot, brown the ground beef with the onion. Season the beef with small amounts of the seasonings listed in the ingredients list (not the whole amount listed, just a dash or two of each.) Drain one can of the diced tomatoes to prevent the chili from being to watery. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer on medium-low for at least an hour and a half. Stir every 15 minutes or so. During the last 30 minutes, add more seasonings if necessary. Don't do this any earlier because once the seasonings have time to cook and the flavors "marry" it may end up spicier/saltier/etc. than you want it to.
    Level of Difficulty:
    Time Needed:
    2 hours
    1-1/2 lbs. ground chuck, ground round, or ground sirloin
    1 onion, chopped
    1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with green chilis (Hunts)
    1 14.5 oz can diced fire roasted tomatoes (Hunts)
    1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with celery and onion (Hunts)
    1 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes
    1 15 oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
    1 15 oz can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
    1 T. ground cumin powder (+ or - to taste)
    1 T. garlic powder (+ or - to taste)
    2 T. chili powder (+ or - to taste)
    2 T. black pepper (+ or - to taste)
    1 T. salt (+ or - to taste)
    1 T. hot sauce (+ or - to taste)
    10 or 12 bowls
    I don't personally use tomato sauce because the tomatoes themselves cook down nicely with a longer cooking time. If you want to add sauce, do it in 8 oz. increments. Serve with oyster crackers, corn bread, or sour cream and shredded cheddar.
