Tarantula Jack's Famous Chili


3 pounds cubed beef
2 medium sweet onions, finely chopped

1 12 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 can red kidney beans (optional)
7 Tablespoons Gebhardt's chili powder
2 Tablespoons ground cumin
¼ teaspoon Tabasco sauce



1. Sauté beef in skillet. Put beef into your favorite chili pot and simmer with onions, garlic, and broth for one and a half hours. Keep your hands off and leave the lid on!

2. Add the Hunt's tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, kidney beans if you're using them, the Gebhardt chili powder, and the ground cumin. Stir.

5. It's now ready top serve.

6. Give your empty chili pot to the chili groupies and suggest they use new Dawn detergent to clean it up. (It's the Official Grease Cutter of the International Chili Society).

7. Comb your hair, straighten your hat and practice being modest before you receive applause OR the Championship Trophy if you are competing in a sanctioned ICS Cookoff.

8. Serve with a cold Budweiser. This will serve 6-8 hungry people.

How Long Will Chili Last?

Left with leftovers? We've got the answer on how long you can keep this amazing Tarantula Jack's chili for. This chili is so good that your family will be beggin' for more every day, so feed them the leftovers and leave them happy.

Don't let your chili sit out for more than two hours. Put it into a sealed, airtight container and store it in either the fridge or the freezer. In the fridge, chili will last for 3-4 days. In the freezer, it's good for up to 4-6 months. This gives you the perfect opportunity to make tons of this delicious chili for cold winter months.

Once you're ready to reheat, check your chili for obvious signs of spoilage. These include mold, an off or foul odor, an abnormal texture or color, and a sour taste. Trust your gut and throw it out if it doesn't seem right! You don't want to ruin a championship chili by giving everyone food poisoning.

We recommend only reheating this chili once. Twice-reheated chili isn't going to be winning you any applause! Only reheat what you know you can eat. That's a great policy to live by not just for chili, but for anything else that graces your dinner table.
