Carles Infamous Chili

Craig Carle is dead now, a fine officer I worked with for many years who passed away from cancer but he left something behind — the best recipe for chilli I have ever eaten.  This page is in remembrance of him.

Cook 20 Minutes:

2 pounds of hamburger

3 onions

1/2 half stock of celery diced finally

Salt and pepper to taste

Add and Cook Ten Minutes:

2 tablespoons of sugar

1 tablespoon of vinegar

1/2 teaspoon of paprika

Add and Cook 10 minutes:

2 cans kidney beans

1 green pepper diced

10 fresh mushrooms diced

1 tablespoon of mustard

2 cans of Tomato Soup

Cook until ready!

Grab a loaf of bread and butter (toasted if you prefer) and chow down.


It tastes fantastic if you’re really hungry and I am (repeatedly).
