award winning chili. Back on November 30, 2011 he made this (researched the recipe and made it all by himself) for a chili cook-off at work and won! He was pretty excited... So I was thinking a couple Saturdays ago I would make it as we were preparing to watch the Vikings vs Packers in Wild Card action! It was kind of last minute decision so we called up another couple to come over for the game. I ran to the store, bought all the ingredients and thought to myself, great I have 3 hours before company comes - the chili needs to cook for 2 hours - no problem. Well, what I didn't realize is how long the prep would be to get it on the stove and this time I wanted to take some pictures as I went. I just made it before the clock ran out!
This recipe (here) differs from the original by one tweak. We substituted brown sugar in place of the white. I don't know if you could tell a big difference, but the chili turned out great, another winner... The Vikings on the other hand - not. One can only ponder what next year will bring!
Here's the line-up
Browning the meat
Adding everything else
There - simmer for two hours and you are ready to go!
