MEAT: I usualluy use leftover beef that has been saved up in the freezer over a 2 month period. Whenever I have leftover steak or a nice roast, I save it in the freezer to make this chili and defrost in the microwave.
If you do not have any leftover beef, you can cook fresh bite size bits of meat up in a separate hot skillet with a teaspoon of olive oil, plus salt and pepper to season and have it ready to add to the chili. Cook the meat until browned.
Make the beef whatever fits your budget or your preference; top sirlion to hamburger; whichever works best for you. Cut meat into 1/2" small bite size pieces. If using a cut of meat like round steak or similar; cut into 1/2" pieces and then pound with meat mallet until tenderized or the meat can be a tough.
CHILI: Begin with a large saucepan; about 3 quarts. Pour enough oil in the bottom of the pan to coat. Turn on burner to medium-high and saute onions until golden.
Add cooked beef and brown more if necessary. Add one can diced tomatoes and mix with large spoon.
Add one can of canned chili mix. I prefer to use Hormel Chili no Beans as my friend can't have onion and this is the only that meets that requirement. But I'm sure you can substitute another. Mix this into the saucepan. Turn heat down to medium or a light simmer.
Add two cans of canned red chili beans. Drain before adding. If you like your chili more spicy, buy the kind that has green chili or jalapenos. Mix into the simmering chili.
Add the last two ingredients; catsup and Carroll Shelby's Chili Kit. If you don't have Carroll Shelby's Chili Kit on hand then add chili powder to taste.
Simmer all combined ingredients for 15 - 30 minutes over low heat, Spoon into bowl and top with shredded cheese.
Top each bowl with optional spoon of shredded 3 cheese mix Mexican Cheese or Cheddar Cheese. Recipe can easily be doubled to serve more people. This is a mild seasoning; not hot. For medium to extra hot double or triple Carroll Seasoning.
