How to Make Marcia's Chili


  • 1Brown ground beef in skillet, drain all grease and put in stock pot.
    Open all cans - I don't drain any of them.
    Empty all canned items into pot and add onion, if you want heat - throw in some peppers of your choice.
  • 2Stir all well.
    Add all spices.
    Add tomatoe juice. Less if you want thick chili, more if you want it thinner.
  • 3I added a good pinch (between thumb and index finger) of baking soda to this. I was told that this help to take the acid bite out of the tomatoes. I cook this for about 45 minutes.
    Taste it and if you want it hotter - add more white pepper, black pepper etc.
