NFL Chili, as in "Not For Long" Chili. I was making a batch on Saturday and realized I haven't blogged most of the stuff I make for my family. This is a fun one and it frees up the weekend for football!
2 lbs Ground round or lean ground chuck (or venison)
One large onion chopped
4 large stalks celery chopped
Two 46 oz. cans Campbell Tomato Juice
2 cans Chili Hot Beans
4 cans dark red kidney beans
One can green chilis (chopped)
2 pkg. McCormick Original Chili seasoning packs
Chili Powder and Ground Cumin to tastee
One pkg. macaroni noodles (I think it's a Wisconsin thing & I'm not one to argue)
Find a big ol' pot and brown the Ground Round. Drain any grease and add the chopped onions and celery.
Add everything else and bring to a boil.
Add noodles (if you're from Wisconsin) and bring heat to simmer. Slow cook a couple hours and remove from heat. It'll take some time for that big pot to cool down.
Great with beer
