A simple prizewinning chili with beans

This recipe is one I developed on my own. It has won several awards in chili cookoff contests.


(Serves 12-16)


  1. Fry together the ground beef, ontion, garlic, and some salt until the beef is browned.
  2. Meanwhile in a large kettle, mix together the tomato sauce, green chilies, and tomatoes and heat over low heat.
  3. When the hamburger is done, mix in with tomato sauce mixture. Add the spices, salt, and sugar, stir well, and adjust ingredients to taste. It will taste hotter later than it does now.
  4. Simmer for about 1.5 hours, and then add beans and pepperoni. Simmer for 30 minutes longer. Serve over rice, topped with shredded cheddar cheese.


Difficulty: easy.
Time: 3 hours of intermittent attention.
Precision: approximate measurement OK.
