Grave Digger Chili

The University of Mizzouri has an annual Chili cookoff during the United Way campaign as a fund raiser. I was fortunate enough to win it in 2010 and then I retired. I was coaxed out of retirement this year to defend my title (LOL). Actually, I think the REAL reason is not that my chili is special but that I put a little bit of effort into the 2010 we did a medical theme, IV bags, syringes for hot sauce, prescription bottles of oyster crackers, etc. This year it's GRAVE DIGGER CHILI - CRUSHING THE COMPETITION.

  • 1.25 to 2 lbs - Lean Ground Beef (to taste)
  • Garlic Salt
  • 1 - Large Vidalia Onion
  • Garlic Pepper
  • 2 - 28 oz cans Peeled Tomatoes
  • 1 - Garlic Bulb
  • 2 - 16 oz cans Bush Dark Red Kidney Beans
  • Water
  • 8 - 12 oz-Barilla Elbow Macaroni (small)
  • Lysander’s Chili Seasoning

In a large soup kettle, brown the ground beef with chopped Onion and 4-8 cloves of garlic (to taste). Stir and continue browning until medium well.

Add 2 to 4 TBS Lysander’s Chili Seasoning then add ˝ tsp of Garlic Salt and a pinch of Garlic Pepper (to taste) and finish browning the beef.

Add the Kidney Beans and Tomatoes, slightly chopped in the can (do not drain)

Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Stir and cover then simmer for 40 minutes

Add Elbow Macaroni (dry) and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently

Add 16 oz. of water and continue to simmer for 10 minutes. Finished product will be thick like chowder & not soupy

Serve with Green Onions, your favorite HOT SAUCE and Cheese
