I got the original recipe from a meal master database but it doesn't resemble it much now. I took a few things out and added a bunch more. The longer the cooking time the better it is.


4 lb Ground beef
3 large Onion; chopped
4 cloves Garlic; sliced thinly
2 tb Chili powder
3 cubes Beef bouillon; crushed
10 Hot pepper rings *; chopped
1/4 teaspoon Louisianna hot sauce; or other hot sauce to taste
3 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 1/2 ts Paprika
1 ts Oregano
1/2 ts Ground cumin
1/2 ts Cayenne pepper
1/2 c Beef stock
1 28-oz can Tomatoes; crushed preferably
1 8-oz can Tomato paste
4 1-lb cans Red kidney beans

Original recipe makes 10



Brown beef, onion and garlic in skillet.

Combine all ingredients in a large pot (or crockpot if you have one big enough)

Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours. Serve with toast.

* I usually have a jar of hot pepper rings around to use with sausage and hamburgers so I used them, any hot pepper would do.

Any leftovers are great for lunch the next day.


I would like to add more hot spices but there are others around that don't like it as hot as I do.

I found this recipe to be just mediocre. It didn't taste like the chili con carne I thought it would. There wasn't enough spicy taste to it, although I could have added more, I suppose. It's not something I will make again.

A simply superb chili recipe. I made it a little too hot for my wife, but will tone it down a little next time I make it.

I adde a few more spices, which made it hotter than some might like it, but I loved it

Excellent chili. Made it for the Super Bowl party and it was a big hit. I served it with thick, buttered slices of whole wheat bread. Once all the ingredients were together I let it simmer for 2 hours. Can't think of any ways to improve on it. This one is my all time favorite chili recipe.

I found this chili recipe very flavorful but not to spicy hotl. I am not a chili lover but I made this for a Super Bowl party and everyone loved it and kept telling me how wonderful it was. Well I had to try it and yes it is great. I have torn up my other very bland chili recipe and will make this one in the future.

I made it twice, the first time with ground sirloin and it was great. The second batch was made with about 1 1/2 pounds of rare shreaded, left-over tri-tip roast and tri-tip steaks. The second time I had to add more chili power and cumin to get the same flavor. Over all, the second batch, using the shread roast, was better but both were very good.
