You can adjust just about everything in this chili to your liking. This is the way I make it.
2 lbs. hamburger browned
1 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 reg. can chopped tomatoes
1 large can tomato sauce
1 large can (or 2 reg.cans) Chili beans (don’t drain)
1 reg. can light red kidney beans, drained
1 reg. can dark red kidney beans, drained
Couple dashes Tabasco
¼ cup med. salsa (like Pace)
2 Tbls. Chili powder (I know it seems like a lot, but it is Tbls.)
Mix all ingredients together in a large pot, Simmer for 1-1 ½ hrs.
I many times make this in my crock-pot, (be sure it is a large crock-pot, this fills mine to the brim, I think I have a 5 quart pot..), on low for 8 hrs. You can also use a large (Dutch oven) pot on the stove cover and simmer for a couple of hours on low heat, stir it once in a while so it doesn’t burn on the bottom.
Serve with diced onions, shredded cheddar cheese and Frito’s corn chips.

½ cup margarine
½ cup butter (can use all margarine, but she uses ½ butter and ½ margarine)
1 cup oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cream of tarter
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups flour
Mix all ingredients together. Chill dough in refrigerator for at least 1 hr. then roll into small balls, place on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a flat bottom glass dipped in granulated sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees 8-9 min. until just turning brown. These freeze well.

Don't ask me how the folks up north came up with this, but it is comfort food for sure.

About 25 years ago... Where has the time gone? Yes about 25 years ago while listening to a radio show (Party Line) on KATE am radio out of Albert Lea, MN; A grandma called this cake recipe in and somehow I managed to copy down all the steps. Now I have changed it up just a bit over the years, so it is much easier and quicker; this is a blast to make, and kids really have fun helping.
