Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and stir in the ground beef and ground pork. Cook and stir until the meat is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Set meat aside. Melt the butter in the pot over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, bell pepper, and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the cooked meat, pinto beans, tomatoes, parsley, chili powder, pepper, monosodium glutamate, salt, and cumin. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce heat, and simmer for 1 hour.

Very good chili. I left out the MSG because I don't use it. I forgot to add the parsley but It was still very good. It is very unfair of someone to rate this recipe and give it 1 star when they haven't even made it. I would give it 10 stars if I could just to even out the overall rating. Read More

Hey Gang- DNA here. I realize MSG is a no-no, but it's Dad's recipe, so out respect, I kept it in. You can always cut the MSG and add more salt. My wife can't eat beef, so I substitute ground turkey with no real effect on the taste (although I'm sure if you did a side by side test you could tase the difference). I have since tweaked the recipe by adding a couple cans of black beans to the mix. Someday I'll try the recipe with shredded meat instead of ground because, I heard somewhere that it's a federal law that all chili recipes must be tweaked, altered, adulterated, and/or destroyed at least once by adding ostrich meat or sautéed beaver tail. Since Dad's original recipe was written on a piece of an old paper shopping bag, I'm sure he won't mind a little creativity. Read More
