Section: Cooking With Joe
Blogger: Joseph Clay
The colder temperatures have arrived and its time for me to whip up a batch of my not yet famous Joe’s Hot In Hot Out Chili.
Like my Chili I’m not yet a famous author which puts me in the category of a Starving Artist. That translates to Joe stays broke most of the time and cooks on a budget.
This tasty dish will set you back around $25.00 if you have to purchases all the fixin’s.
Of course it will be cheaper if you have any of the spices and/or other ingredients lying around the house.
This recipe will yield 6 – 8 oz servings.
Speaking of Chili there is a funny tale about a chili cook off and a replacement judge. I guarantee you can’t read Texas Chili Cook – Off with out laughing.
Joe’s Hot In Hot Out Chili
What y’all will need.
- 1 – Box of Carroll Shelby’s Chili Kit
- 2 lbs. Of Ground Beef (Can substitute with Chicken, Turkey or Venison. )
- 1 – 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
- 1 cup of water
- 1 medium onion
- 1 medium green pepper
- 1 – 10 oz. can of Rotel mild Diced Tomatoes & Green Peppers
- 1 – 15.5 oz can of Chili Hot Beans
Now you can stop with the above ingredients and have some nice chili. Just follow the directions on back of the box. The only difference is replace the can of diced tomatoes with the can of Rotel.
If you are like me and like your chili as hot as your woman, you will need to add the following.
Lets Make It Hot
- 1 Tablespoon of hot sauce (Your choice of brand.)
- 1 Tablespoon of green pepper sauce (Your choice of brand.)
- 1 Tablespoon of chili powder seasoning (Your choice of brand.)
- 8 Peppers from the green pepper sauce.
How Long Will This Take?
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Cook Time: 30 minutes
Time to get Cookin’
- Chop onion and green pepper. Remove 8 peppers from the green pepper sauce. Place chopped peppers, onion and peppers in a single small bowl.
- In large skillet toss in the chopped onions and peppers along with the 8 – peppers from the green pepper sauce and 2 lbs of ground beef (or meat if your choice). Brown and Drain Fat.
- Place the drained ground beef (or meat if your choice) in large pot. Add 1 cup of water, from Carroll Shelby’s Chili kit – spice packet and cayenne pepper packet. Add Tablespoon of chili powder, green pepper sauce and hot sauce. Followed by the tomato sauce and Rotel. Mix ingredients well using a wooden spoon, cookware is too expensive to be scratching it up using a metal spoon.
- Cover and Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Add chili hot beans during the last 5 minutes of cooking…or after chili has been simmering for ten minutes.
You can top of your creation with shredded cheese, sour cream or grated Parmesan cheese. My personal preference is to crumble up either soda crackers or corn bread sticks in mine, but to each you own.
If I get craving for this dish in the summer I’ll cook up a batch and add it to some grilled hot dogs or burgers.
There you go, I hope you enjoy your chili!
