While we wait patiently for his guidance I have something from our tailgating tradition to share with you.
Every year, usually toward the end of the season we have a chili cook off. My husband makes chili con carne, our friend makes his hot buffalo chili and another friend makes white chili.
2lbs Lean Ground beef (1lb lean ground beef and 1 lb ground bison (optional)
4 large cans Kidney Beans, drained
4 cans diced green chili
4 cans Ro-tel brand hot diced tomatoes (it really is the best brand for this recipe)
1 large can tomato paste
1 large yellow onion - Diced
Ground black pepper to taste
Cayenne or hot chili powder to taste
Brown beef then add to all the ingredients in pot and let cook on low 6-8 hours.
We heat it up once we are at the tailgating lot. Ron loves to make it so hot usually it's even to hot for me, and I like hot. Beer seems to be the drink of choice for this tailgating.
I do not drink beer, so I usually take a sweet white wine for this dinner. Sweet offsets the spice!
Who to you cheer for in the fall?
