5 pounds sirloin steak, chopped
shortening (try 1/2 tbsp)
3 packages McCormick's chili seasoning
3 to 4 15 oz cans red kidney beans
salt to taste
chopped chili peppers
1 4 oz can tomato paste
2 tbsp sugar
Spice Island chili con carne seasoning
Brown steak with shortening until medium. Add chili seasoning and cook for 5 minutes. Add beans, tomatoes, spices, chili peppers, sugar, chili powder and/or chili con carne seasoning. Taste. If chili is too hot, add one or two cans tomatoes. Add tomato paste. If chili seems too thick, add water. Simmer on low for 20 minutes. Serve with soda crackers and soda.
Tip: This chili will be better tomorrow than today. You must guess the amounts I use. I never measure them.
