    This is a family favorite that always seems to bring long lost friends out of the wood work.  Thoought I would post it after I saw the Chili video.

    Our Family Chili

    2 ½ cups of water
    3 pounds cubed beef or chili meat
    2 tablespoons paprika
    1 tablespoon onion powder
    1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
    2 teaspoons bullion, Beef granules
    1 teaspoon bullion, Chicken granules
    1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
    4 teaspoons ground cumin
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
    6 tablespoons chili powder
    1 large split jalapeno chili pepper with seeds

    Briefly sear meat and then add jalapeno pepper tied in cheese cloth sack, paprika,
    onion powder, cayanne pepper, bouillon granules, tomato sauce and water to
    cover. Simmer, covered, for 1-1/2 hours or so. Add cumin, garlic powder,
    black pepper, and chili powder. Cook for another 30 minutes or until meat is tender.
    Remove cheese cloth sack with jalapeno pepper and serve.

    Side Item
    Beans, ( I have found pintos or black to be best) prepared and served on the side to be
    added after serving. Same with cheese, onions, or what have you.

    I agree with ShooterRick, it does sound tasty. Well worth trying, nice trick with the jap/cheese cloth, no bits of jap to bite into. I do the same thing when I have to use a lot of spices that are not ground. It's all good my friend.
