Laurel's Chili
150 mins (prep 30, cooking 120)
23 ingredients
16-18 servings
I've been cooking by the "eyeball and tastebud" method for so long that I can't share many of my tried and true recipes until I make them and write everything down, which is difficult! Anyway, this is my chili. This is the basic recipe. I add more "hot stuff" for hubby, and also anything that sounds good that I have lying around in the fridge, leftover salsa, etc. This makes a huge batch, I'd say 18-20 servings, but I make it and freeze it, as it freezes up so well. You may want to cut the recipe in half, though. Remember to soak the beans, overnight or quick-soak! Don't worry about the seemingly long list of ingredients, they come together quickly. The fresh lemon juice is imperative after the chili comes off the heat! Adjust the seasonings to your taste and enjoy!
