Cheli's in the pot
Cheli's in the bowl
And here is the recipe:
3 pounds lean ground beef
2-3 medium onions, peeled, about 2 cups chopped
3 tablespoons chopped garlic
3 pounds ripe tomatoes, washed, diced
2 cans (15 ounces each) tomato sauce
2 cans (15 1/2 ounces each) chili beans such as Brooks
2 cans (15 1/2 ounces each) dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (10 1/2 ounces) tomato soup
1/2 cup favorite blended chili powder
Crushed red pepper flakes to taste
In a large pot, saute the ground beef until it is no longer pink. Add the onions and cook over medium-high heat until the meat is browned; add the garlic and cook several more minutes. Drain the fat.
Reduce the heat, add the tomatoes and simmer 30 minutes.
Add the tomato sauce, chili beans and kidney beans and bring to a low boil. Add the tomato soup, chili powder and red pepper flakes. Simmer 15 minutes.
Makes 12 generous servings.
Cook's note: This recipe is listed in the book as coming from Cheli's Chili Bar in Chicago. The bar is owned by Red Wing defenseman Chris Chelios."
Try it! Have a great weekend, and:

Kidding of course. Actually I e-mailed the recipe to my Dad, he's a big Chelios and chili fan.

Only bummer part - I called my wife in to look at your tasty pictures and when she looked at the recipe she stated "oh we already do that - minus the tomato soup."
Guess I'm just in the bragging mood - I married a chick who can flat out cook.
I do somehow feel just that much closer to Chris Chelios now though.
Thanks again - I'm off to the grocery store!
P.S. Define "cold day".
