-- Duplicating 'Fred & Reds' chili-mac
 
I have to say, I've duplicated it, perfectly.

Ingredients:
1.75 #'s - ground sirloin
1 can of regular 'bush' chili beans
2 Tablespoons of extra virgin Olive Oil
1 large can of store brand Tomato sauce
3 heaping Tablespoons of 'Sugar In The Raw'
1 envelope of 'Frenchs' brand chili seasoning WITH onions (yellow envelope)
2 envelopes of store brand chili seasoning
various olive oil amount for pasta water (the 2 Tablespoons are for the actual chili)





Full Procedure:
I use a large alloy pan pot.
Start by browning entire meat content in ONE Tablespoon of Olive Oil
once meat is 80% brown, start in w/ the envelopes of seasoning - adding as it finalizes it's cooking time. scramble meat well - DO NOT drain, as it's sirloin and very limited on how much fat cooks out.
Add Sugar w/ the last envelope of seasoning, add entire tomato sauce and entire can of beans, again don't drain anything, here.
agitate entire ingredients - excluding the pasta.
drizzle in the other tablespoon of olive oil.

Simmer for at least 25 minutes.

Pasta:
One Box of regular spaghetti pasta - add to Olive Oiled rolling boiling water - cover w/ vent - cook for bottom side of the recommended time - So about 9 minutes.
drain and run cool water over it.

I fold mine all together and freeze via the deep tupperware sealable containers.

It's delicious.

Let me know if you have any questions, this is simple and no culinary break through, for sure; but very tasty and hearty ANNNND economical.

Good luck ya'll.

How can you duplicate anything when you say " two envelopes store brand chili seasoning"?

Cannibal 11-08-2011 07:38 PM

Sounds good. 3 tablespoons sugar seems excessive.

I'm having a problem with something called "chili mac" that uses "spaghetti". Anyone else having this problem?

Considering I was tackling a locals' novelty junk food item, it makes sense. I use sauteed beef tenderloin in my own.

Start w/ two - you'd be surprised though, it's definitely not sweet.

I'm going to try this, although I think it has been too long since your last trip to Joplin. Instead of chili Mac, most call it spaghetti red.

OK, indeed - i'd forgotten, but yet knew that. Oh well, it's fabulous. Be sure you use the Frenchs brand with onion, i think that's how i nailed it.

I'm glad Fred N Red's was spared by the tornado. It was close, but went just south.

Wouldn't it be easier to just buy some of that stuff?

Take out, I mean?

Yeah, if it were still in my wheel house. Now it's 13 hrs away. :(

It does look tasty. I just think if you're gonna call it "mac" then you're obligated to use macaroni. :shrug:
