SuperDave's Original Award Winning Chili

4 to 5 lbs beef *- I usually buy sirloin roast on sale and cube it myself (generous 1” x 1” cubes) *Some times I mix things up with half beef and half pork.
1 – lrg. onion, diced
4 – cloves garlic
2 cans beef broth
1 – 14ish oz. Can tomato sauce
1 – 14ish oz. Can of tomato puree
1 – lrg. Can Ortega diced green chilies
1 can El Pato sauce (yellow with duck) This is Mexican tomato sauce, look in Mexican food isle. *This is the “Heat.” *If you are heat sensitive, wait until the end and add a little at a time.
1 package of Lowrys chili mix
1 – 1 lb. Bag pinto beans (cook with ham hock, pork fat or bacon) Lazy method, use 4 lrg cans of pinto beans or beans of your choice.

Cube meat and brown in a large pot with a little oil over high heat. *Do not drain. *Add onion and garlic. *(I put onion and garlic in my food processor at the same time) *Cook until the onion starts to look translucent. *Add beef broth until meat is covered and simmer until it is fall apart tender. *Add the remaining ingredients. *I drain my beans first. *If you like your chili thicker, add 1/4 – 1/3 cup flour to a cup of cold water. *Stir until lumps are gone and add to the chili.

Make sure you soak beans for a day or so. If you dont you will either end up with hard beans or a case of methane outbursts every 5 seconds the rest of the day.

You could 1/2 the recipe. However, there is enough Winter and a Super Bowl left to make the full batch and freeze a couple zip lock baggies for a cold, rainy night that you don't feel like cooking.

Hinrid.. What's the next to last ingredient in your recipe? It says 4 large cans. Cans of what? Thanks.. Larry

Larry, it is the wrap of the line above. If you are feeling lazy, 4 large cans of beans will take the place of the "homemade bean". If you like a variety of beans, cans are also an easy way to go.

Hinrid, Thanks! I just read your first post and it was clear. Maybe I read it wrong last night. It was right before I went to sleep. Looks like a recipe I want to try.. Larry
