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

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
