Jackie's notes for this recipe:
This recipee is NOT for a small family this recipe is for an organization that does a chili feed, or if you want to have many many containers of chili for the winter!!! This recipe is great for public consumption because it is not real spicy, when I make this for home, I do add more spice. ENJOY!!

Brown ground beef and drain good. Season with the onion, garlic, chili powder, and cayenne pepper if desired
In separate fry pans put chopped celery and cover with water cook till celery is just a little tender. Chop onions and put in fry pan and cover with water and also cook till just a little tender.
Combine ground beef, cooked celery and onions into large roasters with the tomato juice, canned tomatoes, UNDRAINED cans of chili and kidney beans. And the chopped green peppers and chopped garlic
Simmer in roaster for at least 8 hours, I usually simmer over night. Serve with more chopped onions shredded cheese and a dollup of sour cream if desired. Season to taste!! ENJOY!!

I make a chili similar to this recipe.....BUT.....I don't make this much anymore as I do not cook at the senior citizen center anymore.

Now it's just hubby and I, but I can't get over making enough food for at least 10 people. I wish I worked somewhere where I could cook like that!!
