Classic Chili

Posted February 3, 2010 by Marc Gottlieb
You can substitute ground turkey or beef stew for the ground beef. You can substitute canned tomatoes for fresh. Peel and seed the tomatoes. you can substitute any flavorful liquid for the stock, beef stock or tomato juice work well. Use canned beans if you like beans soft, or soak dried beans for eight hours for a firmer textured bean.

  1. Nope.. I went over my notes again, and it’s not in my recipe. I don’t think you’d taste it with everything else int here anyway. Of course if you love garlic, throw three, four five cloves in. It can’t hurt!
