Chili for 8

Source:  Editor:  Read:

All ingredient amounts are just suggestions; add more or less. It's very
free form. You might have your own secret ingredients. Go for it!
1 large onion, sliced/diced.
2-3 cloves garlic.
1/2 green pepper, diced..
1 Tblspn oil.
.
Saute above in the oil in bottom of DO until onions are tender. Add:.
.
2 lb. lean ground beef .
Brown thoroughly, salting and peppering to taste. Drain off excess fat.
Add:.
.
2 sm cans tomato paste.
1-2 large cans tomatoes (you can substitute a large jar of spaghetti
sauce for the tomatoes and paste).
3 Tblspns chili powder (or more, depending on how hot you like it).
.
Simmer uncovered for 45-60 minutes, cooking off some of liquid. When
thickened, add:.
.
Drained kidney or black beans (as many as you like; I suggest 2
soup-size cans)..
.
Cover and simmer 15 or so minutes. .
Serve with rice or pasta, and salad. Use another DO to make corn bread.
Hot sauce on side is good, too. I showed my scouts how to cook this
shortly after I started as SM, and my senior patrol cooks it frequently
on campouts now. They scarf it down by the plateful and want more. There
rarely is any left over. .
