I made this last Fall for a fundraiser and it was a big hit so I wrote down what I did LOL!
Servings: makes about 5 gallons/80 one cup servings
10 lbs. ground beef (80/20)
2 ~46 ounce cans tomato juice
2 ~cups dehydrated onion
5 ~28 ounce cans tomatoes (pulse once or
twice in food processor to break up)
4 ~15 ounce cans tomato sauce
1 ~29 ounce can tomato puree
1 ~12 ounce can tomato paste
2 quarts water
7 pkg. chili seasoning
¼ cup sugar
2 Tbsp. garlic powder
¼ cup chili powder
1 Tbsp. hot sauce
8+ 15 ounce cans kidney beans
In a large pot (or 2 pots – divide everything equally!) mix raw ground beef with very hot tap water. Place over medium high heat and stir often while cooking until the meat bits separate and turn from pink to gray. Drain all water and grease from meat. Rinse if desired. Return meat to pot and add all remaining ingredients except for beans and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and simmer for an hour, stirring often. Add beans and simmer another 30 to 60 minutes. Adjust seasonings to taste.
