2 pounds of lean meat chopped into small pieces (beef or chicken or pork)
2 large white onions chopped
1 clove garlic
1 large green pepper ( I personally leave it out)
1/4 cup bacon grease or oil of your choice
2 cups boiling water
seasonings to include: cumin, chili powder, black and red pepper, seasoned salt to taste and if desired, addtional garlic powder.

Brown the meat and onions, peppers in the oil in a heavy skillet or dutch oven then add the boiling water and seasonings. Simmer and stir occasionally to keep the meat from sticking on the bottom and burning. Or put into your slow cooker and let it cook till dinner. This is a no-tomato, no-bean dish so perfectly legal for us Caders or Atkins followers. If you perfer your chili Hot, then add a jalapeno pepper or two to taste and 1/2 to 1 tbls tabasco or hot sauce.
This recipe is from the "Doin' Dutch Oven Inside and Out" by Robert L. Ririe. Excellent book for camping or back packing!
