Back in 1981 Fred Drexel and his wife snagged a $20,000 paycheck with this recipe at the 15th annual world’s championship chili cook-off. It is hearty. The kind of chili that doesn’t mess around. No room for much fluff like tomatoes and certainly no room for beans.
Warning: this is NOT health food. But it was soooo good!
I share my grocery store with our local firemen. They park the engine out front, stock up on food for the firehouse and then get on their way…unless of course they get a call midway through their shopping trip.
My mom used to make colossal sized cheese cakes for family and friends at Christmas time. I’d help…at least I thought I was helping, now that I have my own “helpers” I get it. But these cakes were big, dense, rich, creamy and delicious.
