CHILI, BUBBA'S WAY

Recipe courtesy of Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner

Ingredients:  

2lbs ground beef                     
2lbs ground pork
2lbs steak
6+ large jalapenos
1 jar hot salsa
2 large white onions
2 cans diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato paste
Mesa flour
Jim Beam
Chili powder
Ground chipotle pepper
Crushed red pepper
Cayenne pepper
Hot sauce (Scorned Woman or The Hottest F***ing Sauce preferred.  If not available, Dave's Insanity Sauce works but use a little more)
Spicy marinade of choice
Garlic hot sauce if available (Dave's Roasted Garlic has a really good taste).

Method:

Put a roll of TP in the freezer.

Marinate steak in bowl with spicy marinade of choice overnight, and then cook (preferably on grill) and slice up into small bite size pieces.
Chop up the onion.
Slice the jalapeños.
Brown the ground meat one pound at a time, adding in onions, jalepenos, spices, and hot sauce.  

Heavy on chili powder and ground chipotle.  

No more than six drops of Scorned Woman per pound of meat. 

Cayenne and red pepper also, if desired.
Empty 1/2 - 3/4 cup of Jim Beam, salsa, diced tomatoes, and tomato paste into a large pot on medium heat.
Fill tomato paste cans with water and empty in pot.
Put meat in pot.
Add hot sauce (6 - 12 drops), chili powder, more chipotle, cayenne, and red pepper to taste.
Stir, stir, stir for 1 - 2 hours on medium heat- try not to let it boil.
Add half a handful of mesa flour towards the end to thicken.  Go easy on it, too much and it will turn into concrete.  

If a large portion is going to be refrigerated immediately, go very easy on mesa flour.
Makes a little over a crock-pot of butt-burning chili.

Enjoy!
