Sharon's Chili

Sharon Dillingham lives in Florida by way of Missouri through Arkansas, I love listening to her talk!! She's a great cook and a very good friend. This is her signature chili.
  • 2 qts of stewed tomatoes, crushed
  • 1qt of spicy V 8 juice
  • 1 large white onion, chopped (1 cup)
  • 2 cups of chopped celery
  • 2 cans of red kidney beans, drained
  • 2 lbs hamburger meat
  • 3 tsp of chili powder
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste

Into a heavy skillet add a little olive oil, put onion, garlic and celery in and cook till onions are clear. Then add hamburger meat and cook till brown, drain.

Into a deep pot put the tomatoes juice and spices then add your cooked meat mixture. Add beans and simmer for about two hours covered. This works very well using venison too.
