My Favorite Southern Recipe

My Favorite Southern Recipe


When I make my family’s favorite chili recipe, I add the following in a large pot:


1 lb of ground sirloin

1 lb of ground round

1 lb of ground chuck


Brown all of the above ingredients in a large container lightly coated with several tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Once brown I add:

2 teaspoons of freeze dried chives

2 teaspoons of freshly ground black pepper

2 or 3 tablespoon of Spice Island chili, depending on how spicy you like your chili.

3 teaspoons of sugar (sweetness for love)

1/3 cup of Amy’s gluten free ketchups

1 cup water

Simmer all the ingredients for approximately one hour. Check to make sure that the water doesn’t completely dry out. You can always add more water and keep simmering. When the chili is ready, my family love to use a large soup bowl, add fresh ground g-free cheddar cheese or pepper jack cheese, an extra squirt of Amy’s g-free ketchup, a squirt of Boards Head g-free honey mustard, a big dollop of g-free sour cream, and a piece of g-free cornbread or corn chips. Enjoy this tasty meal.

We also use our chili on a bun with a grilled Hebrew National beef frank which is g-free. You can have a g-free bun or regular if you desire. My husband does like a chopped Videla onion on his hot dog. We add ketchup and honey mustard to top it off.

A fresh veggie salad would go wonderfully with the chili or hotdog meal. I use a head of Bibb lettuce, fresh chopped tomato, 1 stalk chopped celery, 1 grated carrot, ½ chopped yellow and red bell pepper,1/2 of an English seeded, chopped cucumber, and freshly blanched sweet peas or green beans. Top that off with toasted almond slices. Annie’s makes a great gluten free salad dressing. I love her “Cowgirl Ranch,” “Honey Mustard”, and” French” dressing! You can always make fresh croutons with “Whole Foods” gluten-free bread chopped and toasted. Just cut to size, place on cookie sheet, toss with extra virgin olive oil, and fresh ground black pepper. Toss your salad and enjoy.
