Old-Fashioned Brick Chili
5 pounds lean chili meat
1 pound suet, ground
4 medium onions, chopped
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 1/2 tablespoons cumin powder
1/2 tablespoon red pepper
4 or 5 chile peppers, parboiled, skinned and finely chopped
3 large tablespoons chili powder
- Put suet in pan, let melt, then add onions. Add chili meat and cook until meat stands apart, about 15 to 20 minutes.
- Add remaining ingredients except chili powder; turn to low and cook slowly until tender, about 2 1/2 to 3 hours.
- About 15 minutes before meat is done, add chili powder and simmer. Pour into rectangular bowls in refrigerator to thicken. This will keep for weeks.
