The Brown Bag Dry Chili Mix Description
Blue Ribbon Winner
Serves 4 to 6
The tale of chili began somewhere in the late 1800's. Some claim they used it as a preservative to jeep the meat from going bad...or at least tasting bad.
Pods of powerful strength were simmered with beef and other spices to make a fiery stew. It caused tears of great joy in the eyes of strong men and beautiful women. Chili became an instant success and the "wild fire" spread and couldn't be put out with a beer! It turned its victims into avid fans.
Today, chili is still made from the same local, original ingredients: coarsely ground beef, chili powder, and the traditional spices, oregano, cumin, onion and garlic. A little "masa" (stone ground corn meal) is used to thicken up the juices. Pinto beans are also a very common additional ingredient.
The great humorist, Will Rogers once said that "he judged a town by the quality of its chili." This bag will be the best store-bought, homemade chili you will ever serve...a chili that would make anyone feel good inside!
