How to Make 5 years in the making Chili

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large, heavy pot, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions, season with 1 teaspoon of salt and the cayenne, and cook, stirring, until they are wilted and golden, about 4 minutes. Add the ground beef and the remaining salt to the pot. Cook, stirring, until the hamburg is browned evenly , about 4 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the rotel and whole tomatoes, beef broth, beer, garlic, chili powder, cumin, oregano, red pepper flakes, corn and beans. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, about 2 hours. Skim off any fat that rises to the surface.
  2. ** add more or less red pepper flakes, cumin & chili powder to taste. The above is for the average persons palate **
  3. ** If chili is to thin add a bit more paste ** if to thick add a bit more beef broth**
  4. ** When serving top with either shredded cheddar or crumbled blue maytag cheese **
