Wick Fowler Copycat Chili


Today I rushed to the grocery store in hopes of getting all the chili fixings for dinner tonight.  Snow was starting to fall and I think everyone in town decides to rush to the grocery store so they can fix chili.  Needless to say, by the time I got there all of the Wick Fowler Chili Kits were sold out.  But it was a good thing that the last time I made Wick Fowler’s Chili that I measured everything that I put in it.  So we can still have Wick Fowler’s Chili, well sort of anyway.  Here is the recipe:

Brown 2 pounds of ground beef.  Drain off the grease.  Add 1-8 oz. can of tomato sauce and 2 cans of water.  Stir.  Add 6 1/2 to 7 tablespoons of chili powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin, 1 1/2 teaspoons oregano, 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cayenne depending on how hot you like your chili, 1 tablespoon dried minced onion, 1 teaspoon dried minced garlic.  Stir.  Add 1 large can of beans if you like beans in your chili.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Just before serving stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons of masa.

Yum….the family didn’t even notice the difference!
