Dave's Beef Chili
Loaded with veggies, tender melt-in-your mouth beef, and rich flavors, Dave's traditional Halloween chili always gets applause. Dave has been making his chili annually on Halloween for at least 20 years now. He quadruples this recipe, because people love it so much.
1 1/2 lbs boneless beef top round 1 T canola oil 1 cup chopped onions 2 cloves minced garlic 32 oz canned tomatoes, cut up 3/4 cup sliced black olives 1 cup beef broth 1 T brown sugar 2 T chili powder 1/2 cup chopped green chilies 2 tsp crushed dried oregano 1 tsp ground cumin 1/2 tsp salt 3 cups cooked pinto beans Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded for garnish
Soak beans over night and cook them in a large pot the next day until tender. Brown, then cover and cook chopped (1/2-inch cubed) boneless round in another large pot over low heat with oil, onion, and garlic until almost tender. Add other ingredients (except beans), cover and cook for at least an hour until meat is ultra-tender, stirring occasionally. Add beans and heat thoroughly. Serve, topped with sharp cheddar (if desired).
