Recipe Name: Alabama Picnic Chilli Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:

Base: Beef Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 10

5 Pound(s) Coarse-ground beef
1 Onion, diced fairly fine
1/2 Cup(s) Green bell pepper, diced
2 Tablespoon(s) Beef base
1 Tablespoon(s) Cocoa, Nestle or Hershey
5 Teaspoon(s) Powdered garlic granules
1 Teaspoon(s) Ground cumin
48 Ounce(s) Can tomato juice
5 Tablespoon(s) Plus 3 ts chilli powder
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Fresh black pepper
Combine the beef base, tomato juice, chopped veggies, cocoa and 4
tespoons of powdered garlic in a dutch oven over a low (simmer) flame.
Divide the hamburger into three more-or-less equal batches and brown
it in a separate skillet. Add 1 teaspoon per batch of chilli powder.
When browned and crumbled drain excess fat and add to dutch oven.
Repeat until all ground beef is in the chilli pot. Add the black
pepper to the chilli pot. Stir in 1 tablespoon per pound of meat of
the chilli powder (5 Tb for this batch). Cover pot and let simmer,
stirring once in a while. When the onions and peppers are cooked
(about 1 1/2 hr) taste the pot. You will probably find that you'll
need to add the remaining tablespoon of garlic powder and the teaspoon
of ground cumin. You may also want to add an additional tablespoon of
chilli powder at this time. Trust me on the garlic and cumin. It adds
the final kick. Neysa tasted before and after and could not believe
how much difference it made. Simmer for an additional 10 to 15 minutes
and serve. For those desiring a hotter product add cayenne until your
lips turn numb and your sinuses drain if you like. I made this batch
extra-mild in deference to picnic attendees who don't handle heat real
well. Sadly, Maya Houston thought it was still too hot after she
tasted a spoonful. &^( Format and receipe by Dave Drum - 18 August 98
