Scott’s World Class Chili Recipe

Scott’s World Class Chili can be made early and simmered for hours or frozen for later. Either way, your family and friends will love it!

Beef chili

It’s always nice to have a recipe handy that is easy to throw together; a dish that can be prepared ahead of time; or one that can be prepared and then refrigerated or frozen and later heated and served. This dish is all of those and one of our family’s favorite meals! Joel prefers a “mainly meat” comfort food and we knew we had a winner when we first tasted this meal made by Scott, our good friend and neighbor.

Debbie’s Gr8 Tip:

My husband Phil, and daughter Anneliesa, were in the mood for a baked potato with the chili. Instead of being served over rice or with cornbread, I split the baked potato, gave it a little “squeeze” and poured a heap of Scott’s on top….with all fixins! Man was that a Gr8 idea!

Joel’s Gr8 tip:

On New Year’s Day, I start preparing in the morning. It then simmers on the stove until football half-time when everyone helps themselves. Our normal practice is to double this recipe which makes a large amount to enjoy and share and sometimes there is still enough to freeze for another time.

Beef chili with cornbread

My favorite way:

I prefer to eat it with lots of “goodies.” So on the side we offer rice, beans, grated cheese, sour cream, chopped onion and pickled jalapeño (yes, Joel likes a spicy meat chili!) and of course corn bread! Enjoy!

    OK…. I made this chili on Sunday for watching football all day and having something on the stove simmering all day & this did NOT disappoint anyone!! My husband and son said it was the BEST chili they had ever tasted. Definitely a recipe keeper!

    Hi! The chili has a real “kick”! For those that like to “kick it up a notch” more (Joel), the pickled jalapeño is a perfect addition. Enjoy!
