Paul's Nuclear Chili

                                         Paul's Nuclear Chili
Ingredients:                                                                                                         
2lb. ground beef
1-gallon size can of chilli beans
1-29oz. can diced tomatoes
1-29oz can tomato sauce
1 large onion-diced
1 green bell pepper diced
2  habeneros -minced
1tbl. hot sauce
1cup water -plus- 4 cups water
3-4 packages chilli seasoning

Preparation:
In a large skillet, fry beef, onions, hot and bell peppers. Fry until beef has browned.
Drain the meat drippings. Add beef back to the skillet and add 1cup water and 1 chilli seasoning.
Simmer until the water has evaporated.
In a large stock pot heat, beans, beef mixture, 4 cups water,  hot sauce, tomatoes, tomato sauce and 2-3 package of chilli seasoning.
Simmer for 1 hour and serve. If you leave out the habenero, this is great chilli

Variations: 
Chili is better if you make it the day before and reheat it.
Many people add brown sugar to their chili.
Sometimes I use 1 cup ketchup or a small bottle of salsa instead of the tomato sauce. 
You can serve chili with shredded cheese, sour cream, crackers, crushed tortilla chips or bugles, peanut butter sandwiches.

  1. My hubby and his hunting buddies would love this recipe! The habaneros and the hot sauce are exactly the kick that they want in a chili-so guest what I am making the next time they are all together. Hunting season is over, but I will definitely pass this fiery recipe along. Thanks for sharing.
