Makes 8 3-block servings
2# extra lean ground beef 24P
1 quart tomato juice 4C
29 oz can tomato puree 8C
15 oz can red beans, drained 8C
1 medium onion, chopped 1C
2 cups celery, diced 1C
2 cups green pepper, diced 1C
1 1/2 cups tomatoes, chopped 1C
2 tbsp and 2 tsp olive oil 24F
(adjust the fat depending on the fat content of the meat)
Seasonings: cumin, garlic powder, salt, pepper, chili powder
Brown beef in 6 qt pot, then add remaining ingredients and let simmer for minimun 1-1.5 hours (I think Wendy's simmers their chili for 3 hours).
You can alter the carbs by omitting the tomato juice and using crushed tomatotoes in place of the tomato puree.
