Steak - N - Shake Chili
I have always enjoyed Steak - N - Shake chili. I get a bowl of it every time I go there. I got a copy-cat recipe off the internet some years ago. The actual recipe is a well guarded secret, but this tastes just like the real thing!
1 1/2 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. salt
10 oz. can of French Onion soup
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
20 oz. - 22 oz. can of Chili Hot beans in chili gravy
6 oz. can tomato paste
8 oz. can tomato sauce
2 tsp Hershey's Cocoa Powder
10 oz. Coca-Cola (not diet)
Brown the ground beef and crumble it. The key is to have pretty good sized pieces of meat. Place ground beef and all other ingredients in a crock pot, and mix well. Be careful to only use 10 oz. of Coke. The cans are actually 12 oz. and if you use the whole can, it will be too sweet. Cover the crock pot, and heat on High for about 2-3 hours.
Can be served with chopped onions, cheese and Fritos if desired.
Truth is only as reliable as its source.
