    Baywatcher's real-deal Tex Mex chilli

    This simple recipe makes two different meals. Both are great for cool weather camping.
    Sorry if my measurements seem weird. I'm trying to convert them for you. But if you've ever made chili, you know it's fairly flexible. I never measure ingredients for it. It's always a little different and always good.

    Starting with the Chili-

    1/2kg ground beef
    1- strip of bacon (optional)
    4-5 cans of diced tomatoes (14.5oz/ 411g) fire roasted if available
    1- jar of salsa (24oz/ 680g)
    1- can of tomato paste (6os/ 170g)
    1- bell pepper
    2- onions
    3-4 cloves of garlic
    hot peppers: 1-2 jalapenos is a good start. If you like it extra spicy add more. For a more complex heat add different types of peppers. Habanero, banana, etc,...
    1- packet of chili seasoning or 2-3 tablespoons of chili powder + salt & pepper
    2- cans of beans- kidney, black or both. (14.5oz/ 411g)

    Dice/ mince the onions, peppers, garlic and bacon and put it in a zip-lock bag before you leave. (put 1 of the diced onions in a separate bag for meal #2)
    Brown the beef with the onions, peppers, garlic, bacon and seasoning. (The chili won't taste like bacon, it just lends a nice smoky flavor to the pot.)
    Stir in the tomato paste.
    Stir in the salsa.
    Stir in the tomatoes.
    Set aside approximately 12oz for meal #2. This portion will not have beans added to it.
    Stir beans into the remaining chili.
    Simmer it as long as you can stand it or at least until the tomatoes are cooked well down and not lumpy.
    Serve with crackers. I like a little plain yellow mustard swirled on top.

    Meal #2- Chili Dogs

    Chili dogs are a classic favorite in certain regions of the states, such as New York, Detroit and Chicago. Many Americans have never heard of them and are repulsed by the idea but once they try one everybody loves them. So trust me, these are great, especially with a good beer buzz. Also perfect for hangovers when served with chips and Coke.
    Simmer the remaining beanless chili until it too is all cooked down and saucy.
    Spoon it over grilled hot dogs (in buns, of course)
    Traditionally served with chopped onions (see your remaining separate bag of onions) and mustard.
