$20,000 Prize-winning Chili

 

For starters, the water, beer and sugar take this recipe in the wrong direction. Substitute these ingredients with red wine. Also, forget the pork - this has not flavor in chili. Just add more beef. These small changes would have won them $40,000. I made those changes and had people chasing me for the recipe afterwards.

I make this recipe and have been serving it for years. I have never ran across anybody that doesn't like it. I am careful to grind my own meat and trim off the excess fat. It is the best I have ever came across.
