Champion No-Bean Chili
3 lbs of ground sirloin
2 lbs of lean ground pork
2 to 3 medium onions depending on taste preferences
2 29 oz cans of tomato sauce
3 29 oz cans of crushed tomatoes
3/8 cup of chili powder
1/4 to 1/3 cup of paprika
2 to 3 T of cumin
3 to 4 T of granulated garlic
1 to 2 t of chipotle chili powder
1 to 2 t of ancho chili powder
1 t of cayenne pepper
Heat a small amount of olive oil in pan to keep meat from sticking as the meat browns. Brown ground sirloin and ground pork in batches. Salt with small portions of kosher salt. Add chopped onions as the meat gets close to being done. Finish cooking until all meat is done and onions are clear. Drain meat and onions.
In large dutch oven, add tomato sauce, crushed tomatoes, chili powders and garlic. Start on the low side of the chipotle, ancho, and cayenne peppers. Add chipotle, ancho, and cayenne pepper powders, granulated garlic, and kosher salt to match the taste of the intended audience. Add drained meat and onions. Simmer on low for several hours, stirring to prevent sticking. Add water to thin if needed. Add instant potatoes to thicken, if needed. (This is easier than flour or corn starch and is gluten free.)
