Tommy's Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
So where do I start.... First off, I do believe the Tommy's Recipe is worth making; but not to be eaten, rather to be used as a base for other chili. With that said, The two star rating is for the outcome of the original recipe. To call the final product a paste is quite generous. I would classify it more like a chili cake. This recipe contains way too much flour and the cooking process doesn't account for all of the flour in the recipe. The final product was dense, and almost inedible. HOWEVER, I took advantage of the density and the thickening capability of this "chili cake" and used it as a flavor and thickening base for another chili. If interested, continue reading and take a look at the recipe I made using the Tommy's Recipe as a base. **RECIPE** 1. 1 small onion, 2 TBS Olive Oil, 3 Cloves of fresh garlic...pureed in blender or small chopper. 2. In large pot over medium heat, saute puree for 3-4 minutes. 3. Add 2 TBS Chili Powder, 2 tsp paprika, and one large beef bouillon cube; saute until bouillon is dissolved. (make sure to stir as to not burn the spices) 4. Add 12oz of very lean ground beef to the pot and saute just until brown. 5. Add 1 TBS of tomato paste, 2 cups of the "Tommy's Chili" and 1 cup of water to the mix. 6. Whisk mixture until well combined and let simmer for 20 minutes. NOW you have an excellent, thick, dense chili capable of using for hot dogs, burgers, or just eating straight.

Favorite Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
Very quick and easy to prepare. I made this recipe twice because the first time I made it, I personally found the recipe to be a little on the dry side and not quite sweet enough for corn bread. So, the second time I made the recipe I added 2 additional tablespoons of sugar to the dry ingredients and a a couple of tablespoons of honey to the wet ingredients......excellent results. Sweet and crumbly but not brittle!
