The recipe that will change your life…

This recipe will change your life, if you lead a boring life that is.   It is a very reliable chili recipe that will be enjoyable to wide range of tastes.   I have served this at my Super Bowl parties and it has been favorably reviewed.

1 –   46 ounce can of tomato juice

2 – 14.5 ounce cans of diced tomatoes

Chili powder to taste – 1 tablespoon is a good start

Ground Cumin to taste – 1 teaspoon is a good start

Cayenne pepper sauce to taste – 1 tablespoon is a good start

1 or 2 – 15.5 ounce can of beans – kidney, pinto or black are acceptable

1 large diced onion

1 clove of garlic – diced is a good start

Basil, oregano and thyme to taste – 1 teaspoon is a good start

Brown and drain fat from ground beef 1 pound 85% lean

As an alternative you can use soy substitute 12 ounces = a pound

If you are not worried about fat content I would recommend trying different types of meats to add some complexity.  Spicy/peppery sausage and ground beef is a nice combination but lamb or pork can be used as well. 

I cook this on low for 8 hours in a standard 5 quart crock pot after meat has been cooked.    You can also prepare rice or another starch (I have heard some people use mashed potatoes!) and add shredded cheese or sour cream in the serving bowl for a little extra decadence.

As we head into colder weather try this out and let me know how you like it.  Have a good week.
