John’s Chili

My husband John has become a great cook. After doing preps for Thanksgiving, John decided to make Chili from a recipe he found in labeled as Jeff’s Hot Dog Chili. It was superb – beautifully seasoned and cooked to perfection. It was the best food for watching the Steeler game – another passion of my husband.


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup canned chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup (10 ounce ) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 dash Worcestershire sauce

Place ground beef in a large saucepan with canned chicken stock using 2 forks to break up the meat apart. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup, chili powder, salt, black pepper, sugar, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat until the chili has thickened slightly and the beef is fully cooked, about 20 to 25 minutes. Don’t boil the whole time, the chili simmers once it has come to a boil.

Eat with hotdogs in a roll heaped with chili to taste.

If you like you can add diced onion and shredded sharp cheddar cheese to the chili and use it as a dip with frito scoops.

Absolutely delicious either way. My husband is a great cook.
