How about some great recipes using our Chili Season’n…it really does take the guesswork out of making a great pot of chili!

Basic Chili

2-3 lbs ground beef

1 large onion, diced

1 cup diced green pepper

1 can beer

28 oz. can diced tomatoes, drained

28 oz. can tomato sauce

2 15 oz. cans mild chili beans

3 tablespoons Chili Season’n

Brown 2-3 lbs of ground beef. Drain and return to pot. Add 1 large diced onion and 1 cup of diced green pepper. Add 1 can of beer and bring to a boil. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add a 28 oz. can of each of these; drained diced tomatoes, tomato sauce and mild chili beans. We use Brooks or Bush’s beans. Add 3 tablespoons of Chili Season’n.. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer approximately 1-2 hours or until desired thickness. Stir occasionally. Enjoy!

* if you want it spicier try adding some of our

Hot & Sassy or Cajun Wing’n Season!

Hog Wild Chili

3 lbs. pork loin, cubed

2 tbsp. bacon drippings

1 medium onion, diced

1 cup diced green pepper

1 12 oz. can of beer

1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes

1 29 oz. can tomato sauce

3 tbsp. Chili Season’n

1 30 oz. can chili beans

1 15.5 oz can great northern beans

Brown pork in bacon drippings until moisture is reduced and meat is lightly browned. Add peppers and onions; saute’ 5 minutes. Add beer, tomatoes, sauce and Chili Season’n. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer on low for 20 minutes. Add beans and return to a simmer and cook until meat is tender…approximately 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. If chili is not the desired thickness, add 1 tbsp. of cornmeal at a time to thicken …make sure you stir after adding each spoonful.

This freezes beautifully…nothing better than heating up a hot bowl of Hog Wild Chili on a cold winter night. 🙂

Veggie Chili

2 tbsp. olive oil

1 medium onion, diced

1 medium green pepper, diced

2 ribs celery, diced

1 12 oz. can beer

2 carrots, diced

1 1/2 lbs. Yukon Gold taters, cubed

1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes

1 29 oz. can tomato sauce

1 lb. frozen corn

2 4 oz. cans sliced mushrooms, drained

1 27 oz. cans chili beans

4 tbsp. Chili Season’n

In a 7 quart pot, saute’ the onion, pepper, celery and carrots in olive oil for 5 minutes. Add beer, potatoes, tomatoes and tomato paste; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Remove lid and add remaining ingredients; stir. Return to a boil, reduce heat and simmer…stirring often, for 1 hour or longer. The longer it simmers, the better!

BTW, if you happen to have an old copy of this recipe there is a BIG mistake…the 1 29 oz. can of tomato sauce was listed as tomato paste!!! Oh my gosh…that recipe has been included in our Chili Season’n packages for over 15 years and we never noticed the mistake. Please make sure you use sauce and not paste!!! To our defense, these recipes were usually typed up at 3 am on a Saturday morning before we headed out to the farmers market. Geez…how could we miss this one, it’s a biggie!!! I guess that’s a big DUH on our part and we apologize.

Bayou Chili

1 lb ground beef

1 lb smoked sausage, quartered and cubed

1 cup celery, diced

1 cup onion, diced

1 cup green pepper, diced

2 cans of beer

1 28 oz can diced tomatoes, drained

1 30 oz. can chili beans

4 Tbsp Chili Season’n

1 29 oz can tomato sauce

1 cup frozen okra

1-2 lbs. peeled, raw shrimp

In a large (7 qt. Or more) pot, brown ground beef; remove and drain well. Set aside. In the same pot, over medium heat, cook the sausage for 5 minutes. Add the celery, onions & peppers and saute’ for an additional 4 minutes. Return beef to the pot and add the next 7 ingredients. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes…stirring occasionally. Remove lid, continue simmering for 1 hour or longer…stirring occasionally. Add shrimp and cook for 5 more minutes or until shrimp is pink and thoroughly cooked.
