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