Steak and Shake 5 way Chili
This Chili has a wonderful flavor! What a great meal the whole family will enjoy!
- 2 pounds Lean Ground Chuck (coarsely ground)
- 1 1/2 cups onion (diced) - optional
- 1 teaspoon celery salt
- 4 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
- 1 cup Water
- 2 (16 ounce) cans light kidney beans (with liquid)
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic salt
- 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 (8 ounce) cans tomato paste
Please note the onions that are cooked in the chili are optional. You can leave them out. I personally love onions when cooked in the chili. Steak and Shake does not add onions to cooked chili. Chopped onions are served on top of the chili.
In a skillet on medium low heat saute ground beef and onions. When beef has been cooked, drain all grease and place in a medium large sauce pan. Add celery salt, tomato sauce, kidney beans, garlic powder, garlic salt, chili powder, pepper, water and salt, mix all ingredients.
On low heat place a lid on sauce pan and simmer for one hour, stirring frequently. After chili has been cooking for a hour add tomato paste and stir well. Place lid on pan and simmer an additional half hour.
1 pound Spaghetti (prepare as directed on package)
12 ounce Package Shredded Monterey/Colby Jack Cheese (we like a lot of cheese)
1 Medium Onion (diced)
Chili Sauce (Heinz)
Prepare spaghetti as directed and drain.
For individual serving :
In a shallow bowl or plate place:
Generous helping of spaghetti
3/4 cup Chili
2 tablespoon Chili Sauce
Chopped Onions (to taste)
1/2 cup Shredded Monterey Jack and Colby Cheese Mix
Top with additional onions to your taste. Any leftover chili can be placed on crisp tortilla chips for a light lunch or a great snack.
Chili sauce can be purchased at most grocery stores in the condiment area. It is sold in a glass bottle, and looks somewhat like the old glass Heinz Ketchup bottles.Print Recipe
