Lynn's Modified 6-hour Chili
Based on Brute Force Chili.
This recipe has been modified to remove tyramines, alcohol, and other
things that Lynn can't have.
Approx 1 hour prep time, 5 to 24 hours cooking time.
You really should start this the night before.
Brown these three ingredients with a little oil in a pan or two.
Drain off the fat, then mix EVERYTHING in your pot. If you're starting
late (i.e. less than 6 hours before the party), put the crockpot on HIGH;
if you're starting the night before, use LOW.
- 4-6 lbs shredded Chuck roast.
- several Tablespoons of Garlic powder. I just shake in more garlic
powder each time I put more meat in the pan.
- 1 red onion, diced.
Cook all this for at least four hours over a low fire. (A crockpot on
HIGH is still pretty low...)
- Slow Cooker Liner. Simplifies the cleanup, don't forget this
- 16 oz or 14.5 oz can of stewed tomatoes.
Mexican-style if they have it.
- 4 cups (1 qt) water. (Lynn can't have broth, boullion, or beer, which
are in the original recipe.)
- 1 pkg brown gravy mix
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 TB brown sugar
- 4 TB Cajun Seasoning.
- 2 TB ground Cumin. Look for it in the little
cellophane bags in the
Mexican food section, it's often cheaper that way.
- 1 TB Oregano or Italian Spices.
- 1 TB Paprika. This is mostly for color.
- 1 TB vinegar.
- 7 oz can diced green chilis. This is the larger of
- Juice of a lime.
If it's not thick enough, thicken it with flour or cornstarch; if needs to be
thinned, add water or beer. I usually let it cook down, i.e. simmer
without a lid so that some of the moisture boils away.
Serve with diced onions,
shredded cheese, and tortillas or tortilla chips.
