Chili for a Crowd
Welcome to Discuss Cooking. This is the closest I could find - is it similar??
4 pounds ground beef
8 medium onions, chopped (4 cups)
4 cans (28 ounces each) whole tomatoes, undrained
4 cans (15 to 16 ounces each) kidney beans, drained and liquid reserved
1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
3 tablespoons chili powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
(garnish with sour cream, jack cheese, fresh salsa or just fresh cilantro)
1. Cook beef and onions in 8-quart Dutch oven or stockpot over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until beef is brown and onions are tender; drain.
2. Stir in tomatoes, bean liquid, tomato sauce, chili powder, sugar and salt, breaking up tomatoes. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 1 1/4 hours.
3. Stir in beans. Simmer uncovered about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until desired consistency.
Of course I have to garnish my chili with a little sour cream, a little jack cheese, and either a spoonful of homemade salsa or some fresh cilantro.
I guess depending on appetize and what else was being served I'd guess this would serve about 10 - 15 people.
