Wanted to do Kevin's chili recipe as a tribute to him. He was so helpful to me and others.

Fried up some ground pork and beef. I like doing it this way as to get some nice browning. Would of went quicker on the flattop.

Fried up onions and garlic

De-glazed pan. Cant waste that goodness.

Added the secret cowboy magic cow patty powder. No Ancho powder so I ground some up. Man that smelled good. I used my Chimayo Chili Powder for this.

Added the tomatoes and liquid. That is my sourdough starter there. Making SD waffles this morning. Man those are good.

All done. This was good but not great. It needs something for my taste but wanted to try to stay true to the recipe. Jake's recipe is one of the best I tried. I made a really good one last year but was just adding stuff on the fly and would never be able to re-create it.

It is definitely chili weather. I'd eat a bowl or two of that. With a big slab of jalapeno cheese cornbread.

Looks good Brian. I made chili yesterday as well and sat in front of the fireplace watching football all day

Awesome Brian! I had a feeling you’d be crushing some chili soon🤣 Great job, awesome tribute! Kevin sure helped me a lot and it’s great seeing some of his contributions come up.

Got a link to this one? I'm going to defrost a pot roast for chili later this week, and am always on the look-out for a good recipe.

Thank you, Jake, it looks really good. It will be served Cincinnati style, over spaghetti with cheddar and onions on top. Long about Wednesday or Thursday.

Nice looking Chili Brian. It's supposed to snow here later on in the week. So chili season is definitely upon us.

Point for sure
Chris
