Zelda’s Chili – Great for Coney Islands and Frito Pie!

Thank you Zelda for sharing this recipe – I love this Chili! 

Combine all seasonings in a bowl.

  • 6 tablespoons chili powder
  • 4 tablespoons corn meal
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper

In a large pot, brown and drain:

1 lb. hamburger meat

1 lb. Jimmy Dean HOT Sausage

Once meat is browned and drained, add spices and cook about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.  Add:

1 – 8 ounce can tomato sauce

1 – 15 ounce can diced tomatoes

2 cans Refried beans

4 cans hot water.

Simmer slowly on very low heat for 1 hour.  Delicious!  You can add grated cheddar cheese and chopped green onion or a dollop of sour cream to your hot bowl of chili.  This would also be yummy on Coney Island Hot Dogs, a Bryan family favorite.  This dish freezes well.

      Cindy, I am so glad your family liked the chili recipe. My dear friend Zelda shared that recipe and I have eaten it several time already this winter season. We made frito pies last time and they were delicious! I really appreciate you letting me know what you thought about the recipe – THANKS!
