Terry's Secret Recipe

Today I'm sharing a secret family recipe. This one is a keeper, put it where you can get to it easily if you've had a busy day or a "Mom's Night Off" or  "Dad's Cooking!" Easy, but oh so good and it's Super Bowl perfect too. My SISTER in law's recipe, it's famous in our family. It's probably the only recipe that I had that the daughters left home with... they didn't want to be far from the secret recipe!

OK, are you ready? It's not one of those recipes that has a lot of ingredients or a lot of steps. In fact, it sounds too easy to be considered famous or secret... just trust me on this, it is!

Terry's Secret Recipe   PRINT RECIPE
2 lb. hamburger
1 lb. brick chili, this isn't canned chili (it's next to the hot dogs in most groceries, a rectangular brick of chili meat that is condensed)  I like the Famous brand or 4 Star ... they look like this:

1 lb. Velveeta, cut in chunks
2 cans chili beans, undrained
1 can Ro-Tel tomatoes, your choice...blazing hot or wimpy mild!
8 oz. sour cream
shredded iceberg lettuce
shredded Cheddar cheese
tortilla chips

Brown hamburger and drain. Add beans, chili, Ro-Tel and Velveeta. Simmer over LOW heat until melted. Add sour cream and serve in bowls topped with shredded lettuce, shredded Cheddar cheese and serve with tortilla chips. I didn't say it was healthy, did I?

  7. i'm going chili brick hunting this week. i have never even heard of one. i do believe anything with velveeta is delish!

  8. I don't think they sell those Chili bricks in these here parts. Does your sister-in-law know you gave her secret recipe to the whole wide world?
