chili – the best!

sent by phill lindsay

this winter (’19) i dug out my commonplace recipes for veggie burgers (same as what andrea shared though i substituted brazil nuts for the peanuts) and chili. for the latter, first i made a quarter batch then, for a party, a half batch. it got compliments. my recipe card is dated 1973. here’s the recipe in full:

16 c. kidney beans, cooked. 4 c. chopped onions
3/4 c. oil 4 c. chopped green peppers
10 c. tomatoes 4 c. chopped celery
8 tsp. cumin 4 tsp. turmeric
4 tsp. garlic powder. 1 tsp. cayenne
4 Tbs. chili powder. 1 tsp. celery seeds
4 bay leaves 1 Tbs. salt
1/2 c. finely chopped parsley (opt.)

brown onions & peppers in oil – add celery & seasonings, a little water, and cook until tender. Add tomatoes & cooked kidney beans. Cook till done.
(Serve with corn bread!)

happy memories! now, if someone can get me the ”date bar” recipe from people’s company bakery!
