Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all liquid ingredients, beans, and seasonings together in an 8qt pot on med hi heat. My preference is to blend the stewed tomato's in cuisinart or blender first. (I do not prefer chunky tomato's).
  2. Do not use your onions or garlic in this step!
  3. In a skillet brown your beef until pink is gone. Strain the grease (very important unless you want a layer of grease in the chili, yuk). Set aside. In the same skillet brown onions and garlic until soft and add meat back to skillet with the onion and garlic. Stir thoroughly and then add it all to your 8qt pot. Cook for at least 2 hrs on a simmer. I prefer 3-4 hours Stir occasionally.
  4. top with Vermont Cheddar and Frito's and enjoy!
