Thanks for all the replies and the two stories.
Parameters: We cook it at home and take it in, most activities at the facility only take about an hour.
We were told to make our best chili and remember the residents will be eating it. The CNA's are up in arms
So, we can handle spice, but no "Molten Lava."
I have plenty of beef on hand, different dried chilis, can make my own chili powder as I have cumin, etc. on hand.
El Pato tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chipotle in adobo. I believe i have everything we could possibly include except fresh ingredients.
I need to run back through and write up a list of the ingredients (secret and otherwise) already mentioned. This is taking place in June, so we have some time to work out a recipe. Keeping in mind that I will be cooking our virtual recipe. A dry run would be a good idea, too! Besides, I love chili!
