Delicious Chili – Larry’s

Larry is MY HUBBY, not to be confused with my late FATHER, who was also named Larry! We chose to name our SON’S middle name Larry, after my husband and in honor of my dad. 

My darling d-i-l (Melanie’s) FATHER’s middle name happens to be Larry too!

My son and d-i-l decided to give our GRANDSON the middle name of Lawrence, and that was my dear father’s given name. 

That was a mouthful, and
so is Larry’s Delicious Chili 

It tastes like chili, and it has beans, but perhaps 
it could be called a “bean stew” as much it is a chili.

My husband likes to putter in the kitchen. He’ll go through the fridge, pantry, and my food storage room, managing to gather up about everything he can find that looks good and puts it into the POT! Don’t be put off by how the long list, because…

Here’s what he uses and
it IS extremely delicious!!!


Larry’s Delicious Chili 
Serves: 6
Yields: 12 cups

1-lb ground beef, browned and crumbled
3 lg carrots, peeled and coarsely sliced
3 lg celery ribs, coarsely sliced
2 lg fresh tomatoes, chopped
2 med onions, chopped
2 sm apples, unpeeled, cored and minced
2 (14.5-oz) cans black beans, undrained
2 (14.5-oz) cans red kidney beans, undrained
1 can (15.5-oz) diced tomatoes, with green chilies
1 can (15.5-oz) stewed tomatoes, chopped
4 Tbsp Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce
4 Tbsp Salsa Verde: Green Tomatillo Salsa, optional
1 whole chipotle pepper
2-3 squirts hot sauce
1 tsp yellow prepared mustard
Salt and pepper, to taste

In a skillet, brown the meat, break up to crumble. Set aside. Prep the remaining ingredients and add to a large, 5-qt stockpot. Bring chili to a boil, reduce heat down to a simmer. Add in the meat, and cook covered for 2-3 hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes.


I adore a warm and healthy bowl of soup on a cold winter’s night. Most canned soups and sooo many brands of chilis contain wheat, yet this chili recipe is Gluten Free.

Larry buys and uses canned beans.
Whereas, I normally cook dry beans

However, it’s not my recipe, this is Larry’s Delicious Chili!
