From Tedd Long.

Perfect on a crisp fall day...


2 pounds fresh ground beef

1 quart tomato juice

1 (29-ounce) can tomato purée

1 (15-ounce) can red kidney beans, drained

1 (15-ounce) can pinto beans, drained

1 medium-large onion, chopped (about 1½ cups)

½ cup diced celery

¼ cup diced green bell pepper

¼ cup chili powder (use less for milder chili)

1 teaspoon ground cumin (use more for real flavor)

1½ teaspoons garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

½ teaspoon dried oregano

½ teaspoon sugar

⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper


In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Drain off the fat. Put the beef and the remaining ingredients in a 6-quart pot. Cover the pot and let the chili simmer for 1 to 1½ hours, stirring every 15 minutes.
