First weekend of college football. I always fix chili. Official start of chili srason that runs all the way to mlb opening day. My current recipe has evolved to this. 2-3 lbs hamburger 1 lb hot ground sausage Salt and pepper above while cooking with diced med onion. 1 bell pepper i prefer red. 3-4 stalks of diced celery Couple of beef bouillon cubes or if i have beef ramen noodles i will just use a couple of the flavor packs. 2 can rotel tomatoes and green chiles. 1 can tomato paste. Lately ive been skipping this and actually just using ketchup. Chili powder to taste Dash of cayenne pepper. 3 cans chili or kidney beans adjust chili powder accordingly. If i know i have a few that will be eating i throw in some macaroni for filler. Maybe a little garlic powder. Never cumin. Thst just ruins chili imo. Cottage cheese for topping. Share yours if you arent one of those that keros their recipe a secret.
