Do you add a whole onion or just one half? Well that depends on how many onions I have and how long it will be before I have money to buy more. Today it was just half because we only had 2 onions left and over a week before payday.
How many cloves of garlic? As many as I think I can tollerate!
What kind of meat? A whole pound of organic hamburger!
Then brown the beef, garlic and onions and add the chili poweder. Spicy or no? Flavorful but I don't like my chili biting back all night.
How many people are you feeding tonight? 5 and, and the majority are growing boys or pregnant women.
What kind of tomatoes do you add? a whole gallon of tomato juice, not too many people around here prefer the chunky tomato variety.
Now what? I add 2 cans of corn, 2 can of beans and several stocks of cut up celery.
Taste, adjust as nessicary and simmer until dinner.
What do you serve with your chili? Corn muffins, today it is gluten free corn muffins, becasue that is the mix on hand.
