2 lbs. lean ground chuck
1 pk. McCormick’s Original Chili Mix
1 Pk. McCormick’s Tex – Mex Chili Mix
1 Lg. Onion Diced – Vidalia, if possible
1 24 0z can petite diced tomatoes
2 cans light red kidney beans
1 24 oz. can water
Brown and drain Ground Chuck and place into at least an 8 qt. pot
Pour water, beans, tomatoes, onion, (Oh well, you get the picture)
After pouring everything into pot, boil at good boil for about 10 minutes stirring well, then reduce heat to simmer for at least an hour.
You must keep it stirred well!
I realize that this chili comes from a prepared mix but if you use BOTH pks. of the Original and the Tex - Mex mixes, you will agree that there is no need to do all that measuring and fussing over recipes some cooks do.
I have actually had several people call and ask me to make them some of my Chili, and it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
By the way, to make Firehouse Chili, add an extra pk. of Tex -Mex mix.
It will be all you need.
