Wick Fowler's False Alarm Chili

Submitted by: PALLADINRN

Introduction

Winner of numerous Chili Cook-offs before going public in stores all over Texas and Louisiana (including WalMart, HEB and Kroger). I have to import the kit from my kids in Texas because I can't find it in Alaska; but, I'm trying to educate store managers about it so I can get it here too. I have never found any other chili that compares; I am from the Texas Gulf Coast (I moved to Alaska after my children were grown).

Ingredients

    " Wick Fowler's 2 Alarm Chili" Kit, 1 pkg. contains NO Artificial flavorings or preservatives
    Ground Beef, 90% Lean, 2 lbs.
    Tomato Sauce, 1- 8oz can
    Water, tap, 2 cans

Directions

I don't follow the instructions on the kit exactly; I do not use the red pepper and I add the Chili powder, salt, onions and garlic to my ground beef as I brown it so that the meat absorbs the flavor better. For this reason it is very important to use very lean beef so you don't lose seasoning by draining the fat off. After fully browning the meat, I add it to the other seasonings from the kit along with the tomato sauce and water which I have heating in a 3 quart crock-pot. I allow everything to cook on HI for at least 2 hours checking about every 30 min to prevent burning; however, I PREFER to let it all simmer on low for 4-6 hours, so I either start it and let it cook over night on lowest setting or early in the morning (before work). The Kit makes 6 1-cup servings.
This is something that gets even better after sitting in the refrigerator overnight or freezing, so it is a terrific leftover.
