To commemorate today's final closure of the famous STARDUST Hotel & Casino (closed its doors for the last time about 2 hours ago), a Las Vegas institution since 1958, I wish to provide everyone here with a copy of their renown chili recipe... provided by Chef Rocky from the International Palms Café.
Ground beef (medium grind) — 3 pounds
Kidney beans — 2 regular size cans (rinsed)
Whole pinto beans — 2 regular size cans (medium spice)
Diced tomatoes — 2 regular size cans
Whole white onion — diced
Add ground beef to skillet and simmer for approx. 5 minutes; pull and drain grease, return to heat, and add diced onions, 1 teaspoon garlic, 1 teaspoon chili powder, and 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes.
While still simmering, add diced tomatoes, kidney and pinto beans, and 3 ounces beef stock. Add 24 ounces of water and let simmer for 15 minutes or until desired consistency.
* Note: If needed, add beef stock and additional spice for desired taste. For spicier chili, add three fresh finely diced jalapeno peppers while cooking.
