My Favorite Chili Recipe (LARGE PORTION 9QT)
Serves: many
  • 6 lbs ground beef
  • 2 lbs ground pork
  • 6 lb can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cans black beans
  • 6 onions diced
  • 8 cloves garlic (pressed or chopped)
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons chicken bouillon powder ( I use Knorr)
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dry oregano
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  1. In a dutch oven ( I use a 9qt dutch oven and it fills it to the top) On medium heat, saute onion garlic, ground beef, ground pork until all meat is cooked.
  2. Add tomatoes, beans and spices. Stir and heat on medium until it comes to a boil, turn on low for at least 1/2 hour and hour is even better.
You can make 1/2 a batch or even a 1/4 batch depending on how much chili you need.

I like my chili topped with diced onion or scallions and cheddar cheese and sometimes diced jalapenos.
