"Great chili recipe for a very large crowd. Cook it in a 6 gallon steam jacketed kettle or a huge pot on the stove." — JJCATERING

dried pinto beans
lean ground beef
canned peeled and diced tomatoes
1 1/3 cups
1 1/2 teaspoons
ground black pepper
I made half this recipe for about 40 people. Got lots of compliments on it. However, it wasn't spicy enough for my taste, so I added Cayenne pepper. I'll definitely make it again!
It was a good basis for a simple chili if you don't have a mix packet; however, it needs more uumph. We added salt, more chili powder and more onion. After that, it was pretty good.
I scaled this recipe back considerably to make enough for 6-8 people and it was great. It freezes very well too-
This is now going to be my permanent favorite(and only)chili recipe.It turned out exactly the way I hoped it would.Most of my family cleaned their bowls and asked for more.The little kids weren't to keen on it,but they ate it.Next time I'll reduce the chili powder as they found it a bit spicy.The rest of my family agreed it was just perfect,though.I made a few changes;I added some frozen corn and used navy beans instead of pinto beans,as my family isn't crazy on the big ones.All in all,a great recipe!
I added about some water to the mixture as the last ingredient, since many had complained about it being too thick, then let the chili simmer without a lid for until it was the perfect balance of soupy and thick. I thought it was perfect! Thank you!
The beans turned out really hard...they weren't cooked enough and i followed all the directions.
My husband and I both agreed that this was one of the worst chili recipes we've ever tried. I followed the recipe as directed but WAY too thick and bitter. I even tried to "doctor" it up, but it still was terribly bitter. Sorry!
I really liked this recipe. It was simple and VERY easy to make. If you're short on time, you can also substitute the dry pinto beans for already prepared canned beans, but I would wash and drain them first. I'd definitely make it again.
