The Red Hot Chili Cook Off Prize Winning Chili!

Last week over at the Western Romance Café talk went to chili recipes. I promised that I would post the prize winning chili recipe from The Red Hot Chili Cook Off! When I first came up with the recipe for the book I had to make it before the book went to print to make sure it was worth eating. My kids and grandkids liked it so well, that it's the only recipe I make now! (And any of y'all who haven't checked out our Western Romance Café, the link is RIGHT HERE. Some of us western authors got together and set up a place for western readers to hang out and visit. We'd love to have you join us!)

Red-Hot Chili Cook-Off Chili

Gigi has poured a gallon sized can of all ready prepared chili (That's right from the store but you never tell that you start with store bought chili) into a large pan. Now it's time for each of the other five team members to add their own special touch.
“Okay, time to add our own stuff one last time.” Carlene pulled the tab on a can of beer and slowly poured it into the chili, stirring the whole time.

Gigi put in a half a cup of Worcestershire sauce and four tablespoons of liquid smoke.

Tansy added two cans of chili beans and Emma Ray donated eight ounces of chopped jalapeno peppers. Alma Grace spooned six teaspoons each of chili powder and Cajun seasoning. Josie opened up a gallon bag of cooked hamburger meat and dumped it in the pot.

Sugar removed the wrapper from a Hershey bar, broke it into sections and tossed it into the pot. “Mama wouldn’t have left that candy paper in the Bible if she hadn’t meant for us to put it in the chili. It’s our biggest secret ingredient.”
