Stardust chili

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
Beef stock
Granulated garlic
Tabasco sauce
Chili powder

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.

Did this bring back a 'special' memory for me. The first time my mother and her sister got to visit and stay at this hotel and see how the people spend their time. I don't recall if they got to gamble or not. We had gone there on short vacation. It was beautiful and the shows were something to never forget. How strange that you would mention this. Sure wish those days would have last ed little longer. We all had a fun and exciting time. Thanks for sharing.
