I remember dad making his chili at a church gathering over an open flame in a giant cast iron pot. Much more ingredients was add of course .I think the secret of the great taste is in the Tabasco sauce, I'm not double daring you I'm saying it's appropriate.Best served with jalapeno and bacon corn bread.
Best to have everything close and in easy reaching distance . let's go > Dice onion, chop bell pepper.Using a large skillet place ground beef/ hamburg and onion. Brown and drain of fat. Add bell pepper and continue simmering low heat with lid.
While your beef is simmering open all your cans Drain kidney beans ALL BUT ONE CAN. In Large pot dump caned kidney beans, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce. Add your Beef ,onions and pepper to lg. pot stir it all up.Add your chili mix , chili powder,cyan pepper and tomato paste .Stir It all up
simmer it till it's all hot ) remember everything is already cooked . Now your dashing with the Tabasco saute .. less or more your decide, too thick add some water. Enjoy.
