Superbowl Chili

Well, you can make it for the Superbowl next year I suppose. It was a hit at our potluck last Sunday! This is my brother's chili recipe (I believe he tweaked it from a Steak 'N Shake chili ripoff recipe). Classic!

Trent's Chili

[Note: amounts of ingredients listed below can be slightly altered – just buy whatever size can is the closest to the amount listed and dump it in. That's what we did and it was very yummy.]

1 T. chili powder
2 t. cumin
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cocoa
1/2 t. black pepper
12 oz. Coke
10 oz. french onion soup
21 oz. chili beans
12 oz. crushed tomatoes
20 oz. can whole tomatoes
1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. cheap steak (and no, there is no cut called "cheap steak")
2 cans kidney beans*
1 fresh jalepeno pepper*

• Put the onion soup in a blender and liquify
• Put the blended soup in large pot on medium heat
• Add everything else except the meat
• Simmer after it starts to boil
• Cook ground beef in a separate pan
• While that's cooking, cut the steak into very small cubes
• Put the ground beef in the chili pot
• Cook the steak, then add to big pot
• Stir every 5-10 minutes (it will burn to the bottom)
• Leave the top off and let it simmer at least 2-3 hours

*Optional. We added these to Trent's recipe to thicken the soup and make it a bit spicier.

Trent says: "This recipe makes about 8 bowls, most people eat 2. If you have more than 4-5 people I would double the recipe (as long as you have a bfp...big f****** pot... I'm a dork)"

Don't forget the oyster crackers, cheese, sour cream and onions if you're feeling like a fatty. I mean, if you're having chili already, why not?

I recommend all steak instead of using any ground beef. The steak chunks were amazing.
