Bobbi and I made this chili the other night and it was so good and flavorful that I can't wait to make it again!

Awesome Kick Ass Chili 
  • 3.5 oz Ground Veal
  • 1 cup chopped Tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Onion Powder to taste
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp Chili powder (DIVIDED)
  • 2 large dashes of Hot Sauce (DIVIDED)
  • Dash of Cayenne Pepper
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

In a skillet, brown the veal.  

In a small saucepan, add 1 cup tomatoes, apple cider vinegar, onion powder, minced garlic, 1 tbsp chili powder and large dash of hot sauce, and salt and pepper to taste.  Bring to a boil to cook tomatoes down.  Adjust seasoning to taste and add water if you want to get consistency you want. 

When the veal is finished cooking, add 1 cup of water, 1 Tbsp Chili Powder and large dash of hot sauce.  Bring to a boil and then add the tomato mixture.  Cook for a few minutes.  

You can also make this with chicken or ground beef.  YUM!
