  7. NOTES:

  8. * World champion Texas red chili — This recipe comes from Bill Pfeiffer.

  9. He won the 1980 and 1982 World Chili Cookoff and took first place in the International Chili Society’s 14th annual World Championship Chili Cookoff with it.

  10. Pfeiffer calls this recipe ‘Capitol Punishment Chili’ because he won his first attempt at a chili cookoff in Washington, DC. Texas red chili has no beans…

  11. * Probably your favorite brand of beer is ok. Pfeiffer’s ICS winning recipe uses Budweiser because they sponsored the contest. For hotter chili, add additional Louisiana Red Hot sauce to taste.

  12. * This chili is a great dish if you have a LOT of time. Note well the amount of time called for in each simmering step.

  13. : Difficulty: moderate.

  14. : Time: 4-5 hours.

  15. : Precision: approximate measurement OK.
