This texas-style chili con carne recipe was adapted from the Arkansas Razor Back chili team and provided to me by Nancy and Wes Fetzer. It is rich and spicy without the beans.
After making your chili con carne, try a “slinger”: two cheeseburger patties, hash browns, and two eggs, all smothered in chili. Other great chili combos: french fries and chili, hot dogs and chili, baked potatoes smothered in chili and cheese
Chili Con Carne
A rich and spicy chili con carne that's perfect for a cold, rainy day or any football game.
Brown the meat in the oil. Add onions and green peppers and sauté until translucent. Add other ingredients and simmer on low, uncovered, for a minimum of 2 hours add more beer if necessary.
For a great party, keep the chili warm on low in a crock pot. Provide some or all of the following accoutrements along side your chili: chopped scallions, shredded cheddar cheese, sour cream, guacamole, corn chips, tortilla chips, chopped cilantro, or corn bread. Let all the guests help themselves and garnish their chili to their liking. © Galley Chef All Rights Reserved
Macaroni and Cheese with Bacon
Rich and creamy with a buttery, crunch crust. This comfort dish is irresistible!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Meanwhile, melt a stick of butter in a large sauce pan. Add the flour and cook until golden brown - a few minutes. Slowly stir in the milk and cook until thick. Add the gouda cheese, cheddar cheese, pepper, nutmeg, cayenne and bacon. Pour into small ramekins or a large baking dish that has been prepared with oil.
Mix the bread crumbs with the parmigiano reggiano. Sprinkle over the top of the pasta. Melt the remaining stick of butter and drizzle over the bread crumb mixture. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown and bubbly.
Recipe Notes According to a wide-spread misconception, macaroni was brought to Italy by Marco Polo, returning to Venice from China in 1292. This hypothesis has long been disproved, since it seems that macaroni was already used in Italy at least a century before. Moroccan geographer Muhammad al-Idrisi, who lived in Sicily, documented macaroni in Sicily and in particular in Trabia. © Galley Chef All Rights Reserved
