Blazing Saddles with a Schtickle of Chili

30 March 2015

I cooked chili for my Blazing Saddles party, and it was very well-received. Although, I made some minor modifications to the original recipe for a more beefy result.

Important note: Elizabeth Taylor had this chili shipped to her on various movie sets.

  1. Drain pinto beans.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable of oil in skillet.
  3. Pour beans, onions and peppers in to skillet. Cook until onions are translucent.
  4. Add garlic and parsley to skillet.
  5. Heat butter and 2 tablespoons of oil in a gigantic pot.
  6. Add beef and cook for 12 minutes. Stir and break beef in to lumps.
  7. Add chili powder and cumin to pot. Cook for another 12 minutes. Continue to stir.
  8. Add peppers, onions, tomatoes, salt and pepper to pot.
  9. Simmer for 60 minutes. Stir often.
  10. Add beans and water, Continue cooking for another 30 minutes.
  11. Serve.
  12. Optional: Add sour cream, chopped onions, and shredded cheese.

This was a surprisingly pleasurable experience. I wonder what I should cook for my next viewing party: Psycho.
