    Judge Smails Legendary Chili

    Description: I do some chili competitions, and this is not my recipe. Got this from, of all places, a Fantasy Football website. Made it, and thought it came together really well - add or subtract per your tastes!

    "Got this from an amigo who made this at his big poker game – got rave reviews. Tried it tonight. Best I’ve ever made/had. I didn’t take any of the shortcuts – the flavor is phenomenal. Served with warm cornbread and a cold Fat Tire. Trust me when I tell you how good this meal was."
    Time: Approximately 3 hours
    Difficulty: Easy

    1. 1/3 Cup of Olive Oil

    2. 5 pounds of stew meat – make sure the pieces are ½ to ¼ inch size (got a nice pack of USDA Choice from Costco)

    3. 1 pound of pork sausage

    4. 3 large onions chopped

    5. 6 cloves of garlic minced

    6. 5-6 large dried New Mexico Chilies (pods)

    7. 1 small can of tomato paste

    8. 1 can of tomato soup

    9. 1 tsp of cayenne pepper

    10. 2 tsp oregano

    11. 2 TS of dried cumin

    12. 2 bay leaves

    13. ½ tsp of black pepper

    14. 2 tsp of salt

    15. 13 oz of beef broth

    16. 36 oz of good amber beer (I used Fat Tire)

    17. 1 shot of Jack Daniels

    18. 34 oz of beans (optional – I used dark kidney beans)
    1. "Rehydrate the chilis in 12 oz of beer. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20 min. Strain and then puree the chilis. Set aside."
    1. "In a large stock pot heat the oil. Add the onions and cook over med heat for 5 min. Uncover and bring the heat to high and brown for another 5 min. Add the garlic and cook another for 1-2 min until fragrant. Add the cumin and add the pork. Stir until the meat browns.

    2. Add the beef, oregano, salt, pepper, cayenne and brown until most of the redness is gone. Add the chili puree, 24 oz beer, Jack, beef broth, tomato paste, tomato soup and bay leaves. Bring to a boil. Then simmer for 1-1/2 hours until it has a chili like consistency.

    3. Then add beans and cook another ½ hour.

    4. You can substitute 28 oz of canned plum tomatoes with the juice for the tomato paste and soup.

    5. Another short cut is to use chili powder instead of rehydrating the dried chili’s – 5 TB to ½ cup of chili powder should do it.

    6. Since the meat is chopped already it is only about 30 min prep time. 2 hour cook time.

    7. Garnish with green onion and cheese.

    8. Tipsy adds Sour Cream & Fritos too."

    Editor's note - "Tipsy" mentioned at the very end of the recipe is the proprietor and owner of McLure's BBQ in New Orleans, formerly the chef at Dante's. I highly recommend a visit to his establishment.
