The weekend was so busy as I was my birthday weekend, stretching into Monday and it was filled with company, good times and much running after wee ones.
But I needed to feed a pile of folks.. fresh buns and chili to the rescue..
Three pound of beef, 4 diced onions, six cloves of garlic, six big stalks of celery, one box of diced mushrooms
Cook together till meat is done and browned, then add 1 quart (or largest can) tomato juice or v8, 4 peppers of different colors, 1 quart of diced tomatoes, 1 quart tomato sauce, one can tomato paste, 2 large cans mixed beans and two cans of baked beans, 1 cup to two of chill powdered, and 2 large tablespoons fancy molasses, stir, simmer on low till flavours meld..
This was the pull for my friend that is allergic to mustard stage, then I added the baked beans, and 1 tsp of keens to crank the heat a bit, good that day, good reheated, good cold lol, serve with sour cream, chopped green onions or chives, and if wanted grated cheese..
This is make a big pot of chili for company.. what is your favorite meal to make for bigger crowds?
