Jamie’s Chili

This recipe is called Jamie’s Chili because it comes from Jamie Dean, one of the sons of Paula Deen. Have you heard of her?

A week ago our ward held a Chili Cook-off, and this was our entry. It won the award for “Chunkiest Chili”. I’m pretty sure everyone that entered got an award.

The RO*TEL — no kidding, that’s how you spell/capitalize/punctuate it — tomatoes make this chili quite spicy. I’m just warning you. If you don’t like spicy, spicy chili, you can probably just use normal diced tomatoes and kick up the cumin and chili powder to your taste.
