I ran.  It was good.  Found a new bathroom.  Kids who were suspended for yesterday’s incident are coming back in five (5) days.  So much for *No Tolerance*.

Here’s the actual recipe for Brett Favre Chili, sent by Glenn. 

reveal my trade secrets????? hmmm….
First, put on Brett Favre Jets home green jersey (authentic, not a cheap imitation)
3 to 4 packages chili powder (pick your poison- Shelbys packages are the best)
1 large bottle Heinz ketchup (replaces tomato sauce AND adds a sweet flavor – trust me)
4 peppers – 2 green, 1 red, 1 yellow (chopped)
2 large onions (chopped – save half of one for topping when ready to eat)
1 tomato (chopped)
1lb ground pork (browned)
2lbs lean fajita style steak strips (browned)
1lb lean cubed steak (browned)
2 small orange haberno peppers – whole (de-stemmed and de-seeded)
1 package mesa flour
One bottle chili powder for additional seasoning if needed
One bottle cumin for taste (meat can be browned with it as well)
one jar fresh cut jalapenos (add ten to fifteen slices immediately)
4 tablespoons juice from jalapeno jar (or to taste)
Cook 6 to 8 hours. You can eat at 4 hours but the longer you let it simmer, the better. Also, the haberno peppers should be alternately added and taken out every hour – this will control some of the spice. Or, leave them in there and let her rip — even better…don’t de-seed them for a potentially painful experience. Serve over white rice.
Watch Favre lead the Jets to certain victory.
It’s Patriot Day.

  1. And then I assume you cry like Brett Favre somewhere in there? Go Browns!

    Agreement on Shelby’s chili. Yum.

  2. What qualifies as “package” of masa? 1 lb?
    That’s what I’m going w/anyway – my store sells it in a 5-lb package!

  3. It’s in the market in the Shelby Chili box. Or 1/4 c flour whisked with water works. Thickens the chili.

  4. Thanks, after Googling around I figured it out – I used 4 oz of masa in my big ol’ stockpot – my boy is happy bcz I “can make homemade tortillas”!!! Ai yi yi…
