Guadalupe Chili

Holly Deshane


This is a camping recipe and is done outside with coals underneath and on top. (you might be able to do this in the oven also.)
This is the first dutch oven recipe that my husband and I tried when we camped in Baxter State Park on Daicy Pond a few years ago. We loved it and have made it many times since.
The amount of coals depends on the weather, so if it's a bit chilly outside, then you might need more coals and vice-versa.
