You are saving quite a bit of money now, aren't you? It's a great feeling. Do you know what's better? How it tastes. Now that you know how to make chili powder, why not use the recipe below...


1 lb ground beef
1 lb ground pork
1 TBS canola oil
1 large onion, chopped (save 1/4 of raw chopped onion for garnish)
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
2 cans chili beans
1 can (14.5oz) tomatoes, diced
1 cup homemade tomato juice
1 cup homemade tomato sauce
6 ounces tomato paste
1 can (12oz) beer
1/4 cup chili powder
2 TBS brown sugar, packed
1 TBS cumin, or to taste
1 TBS salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp homemade cayenne pepper, or to taste (optional)
shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish

You may also serve the chili with sour cream, sliced jalapeno slices, Frito's or saltines.

Fry ground beef and ground pork in a heavy skillet over medium-high until cooked through. Drain and set aside.

In large pot, heat the canola oil and add 3/4 of the chopped onion and the jalapeno pepper; sautéing until tender.

Add the drained ground beef/pork mixture back into the pot and add the remaining ingredients; except the cheese. Simmer for at least 2 hours and refrigerate completely before serving. Just reheat again and add the cheddar cheese on top; sprinkled with chopped onion.

NOTE: You may simmer the chili in a crock pot on high for a few hours the night before, and reheat chili again in the slow cooker the next day. Just place the crock in the refrigerator overnight. It's better this way.
