Recipe for George Webb's Chili


    George Webb's Chili

    About 20 years ago my Mother, Josephine Kempinger, sat at the end of the George Webb's counter after breakfast over the course of a few days (drinking her coffee), so that she could see into the kitchen where the recipe for the chili was up on the wall. She copied it down as it was written.

    3 pounds coarse ground beef
    Handful beef suet
    4 quarts water
    4 teaspoons salt
    1 teaspoon paprika
    1 teaspoon Accent
    6 teaspoons chili powder
    3 dashes Tabasco
    1/2 bottle catsup
    1 soup bowl cooked spaghetti
    1 #10 can red beans

    Brown the beef and suet together in a heavy Dutch oven. Add the water and spices including the Tabasco. Cook for 1 hour.

    Add the catsup the spaghetti, and the beans and cook 1/2 hour more.
