Vance's Fry ya mouth chili(won me a blue ribbon at the county fair in high school) Once the judges stopped crying from how spicy it was that is lol I love HOT SPICY food!


2 lbs Ground Beef(again any ground meat will work)
3 cans Tomato Juice

2 cans Kidney Beans
4 tablespoons Chili Powder
2 heaping tablespoons Cheyenne pepper
10 jalapeno peppers
3 Habanaro Peppers
4 large Banana peppers
1/4 cup Tabasco Sauce(or other pepper sauce)
1 Large Sweet Onion
2 cans Diced Tomato's
1/2 cup Brown Sugar(optional if you like sweeter chili add it)

Instructions:Brown your Ground meat in a frying pan and Drain Well.

In a Blender Combine the Following:2 heaping tablespoons Cheyenne pepper
10 jalapeno peppers,3 Habanaro Peppers,4 large Banana peppers,1/4 cup Tabasco Sauce(or other pepper sauce) and 1 Large Sweet Onion(remove Stems but NOT SEEDS from Peppers, and cut into chunks, Cut Onion into 4 chunks. Make sure to remove papery skin from onion lol),Chili Powder, Add Enough tomato Juice to cover and Almost Fill blender.

In a Large Pot Combine Meat,Remaining tomato Juice from 2 cans(keep one back), Liquid from blender,Kidney beans,Diced tomatoes, and brown sugar (If using it)

This next part is VERY VERY VERY important. So follow instructions here Very carefully!!!
Bring to a Boil for 3 mins ONLY then turn down to Between Medium and low, and Slow Simmer covered for 4 to 5 hours Stirring every 10 to 15 mins(add Tomato juice from reserved can to replace evaporation) its very important to keep temp low enough that it doesn't burn.
IMHO fast chili is Bad Chili!!!!
