Chili Cook-off Time!


New member
So, my company held their 2nd annual Chili Cookoff today. I won 3rd place last year, so I figured out where I went wrong and made it better, bolder, and hotter! If yall know anything about Texas, we love our chili hot! Well, I didn't turn mine into a 4 alarm fire, but it has a nice lingering heat that comes on after tasting.

Ingredient list
Can of Ranch style chili beans
1 Large Sweet Onion
1 1/2 bulbs of fresh garlic
1 habanero pepper
1/2 cup grilled New Mexico Green Chilis (diced)
1 lb lean, grass fed beef stew meat
1 lb lean, grass fed pork sausage
1 lb Sage pork sausage
2 cans of diced tomatoes
Bacon grease for sauteing the onions, peppers, and garlic
4 different types of chili powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp cumin

Cook for 7 hrs on low.... and then serve... Yummy!

I found out that I won 1st place! It was by 8 votes. I am ecstatic as I have NEVER won a chili cook-off before. Last year was the first time I had even placed. Next year, I will be going for Win #2! I even had enough left over for 2 bowls.

Great recipe Gogo. Reminds me I have to do chili one of these days. Problem is just to get all of the ingredients together first.
