Re: ER Forum Cookbook

This is a HUGE amount of chili. Great for a party, i.e. think Superbowl! Otherwise, freeze it into smaller portions. It reheats really nicely.

“Feed the Masses” Chili

3# lean ground beef
3 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp seasoned salt
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
3 tsp crushed red pepper
2 tsp ground red pepper
4 tsp chili powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp cumin
~ 1 ½ tsp salt (more or less to taste)

~ 3 tablespoons oil
5 green peppers, chopped
6 cups chopped onion
4 stalks celery, chopped
24 oz sliced fresh mushrooms

2 – 29 oz cans tomato sauce
2 – 40 ½ oz cans light red kidney beans
1 – 39 oz can hot chili beans
1 – 16 oz jar of hot salsa
2 – 5 ¾ oz cans olives (drained and sliced)

~ 5/8 cup of brown sugar (more or less to taste)

Sauté the vegetables in oil in a large soup pot. (Add the mushrooms last to avoid overcooking).
Meanwhile, in another pan, brown the ground beef. Then add all of the spices to the ground beef and cook through.
Add the ground beef mixture to the vegetables. Now add the remainder of the ingredients except the brown sugar.
Stir completely. Last, add brown sugar, (to taste) in small increments.

Enjoy!

Re: ER Forum Cookbook

A long time ago I posted my Low Country Shrimp & Grits on WIkipedia - don't ask me why, just fooling around I guess. Anyway you're welcome to it if you can find it - look in food/recipes, maybe?

Anyway it's killer.

I dunno, Al... how is the beaver going to be involved in this project?

That concern aside I think it's a great idea. Has anyone ever seen a discussion board put out a cookbook anywhere else for any purpose?

Re: ER Forum Cookbook

Heres' a tasty little dish I call "Half-quart of Fat-free Cottage Cheese & Pepper Served Over The Sink".

I make this particular dish about six times per week. It's the perfect compliment to my Glass of Low-Sodium V8 & Fistfull of Vitamins and Supplements".

I should have you guys over for lunch sometime.

I did not think it was possible to eat cottage cheese without pepper! I like some kind of fruit in it also.

The things I learn on this board ! Never in my life have I heard of cottage cheese with pepper.. I've always eaten it plain or with pinapple or maybe with a dash of cinnamon. But now I looking forward to trying it with pepper.

Cottage cheese can be made edible with applications of soy sauce.

Pepper? Some things you have to take with a grain of salt.

Hey Dreamer,

Your sweet potato casserole recipe is my absolute favorite holiday dish.

I will admit when I started reading it I had a sinking feeling in my stomach, just knowing the topping was going to contain marshmallows :P. But you did it right!...brown sugar and pecans!

Re: ER Forum Cookbook

Glad to hear it. Most of the recipes that I posted are family favorites and not low calorie. Some of them we only eat a couple of times per year. We eat a lot of chicken and veggies most of the time. Boring, but also good.
