I used to enjoy the chili con carne served at the Market Bar and Restaurant on the concourse of the World Trade Center. The following recipe seems to produce a similar dish:
Twelve Meals (Servings) For Under $4 Each- $8 or $9 With Wine or Beer, Salad & Bread.
June 2007
Six Quarts of Chili
Dried Kidney Beans 2 Lb.
Lean Ground Beef 5 Lb.
Kielbasi to 1 ring (optional)
Chili Powder 6 Tbs. (2 hot & 4 med. hot- from Penzeys)
Oregano 3 Tbs.
Sweet Paprika 3 Tbs.
Epazote 3 Tbs.
Cumin 2 Tbs.
Cayenne 1 Tsp.
Crushed Red Pepper 1 Tsp.
Tabasco 2 Tsp.
Onion 4 Cups
Garlic 3 Tbs.
Bouillon 3 Tsp.
Peanut Oil or Lard to fry onions.
  • Rinse beans and soak overnight
  • Cook beans with 2 Tbs. of epazote with soaking water and as much additional water as required to barely cover.
Meanwhile, in a 7 quart Dutch Oven:
  • Fry diced onions and garlic until softened
  • Add ground beef and brown thoroughly
  • Add 1 quarts of water, remaining dry ingredients and bouillon
  • Bring to boil and reduce to simmer.
  • Simmer for 1 hour
  • Add Tabasco and simmer for another hour.
  • Add of beans.
  • Continue simmering and adding bean broth to prevent over thickening.
  • Add remaining beans and simmer for an additional hour or until the desired consistency is achieved.
For a Polish style variation, fry sliced or diced kielbasa with the onions and garlic before adding the ground beef.

In browsing this forum I see that many purists proclaim that real Chil does not contain any beans. It would seem that the origins of Chili might imply otherwise (assuming in originated amongst people who had a lot of bellies to feed any very little dinero).
