Survival Chili Recipe

This is my daughter’s recipe for what she calls survival chili. When I inquired about the name she said because you have enough of the ingredients to last 10 years. I’m sure she’s exaggerating maybe a year or so. No matter it is pretty good. Hope you enjoy it. The meat used is from Survival Cave Foods but just about any canned or fresh beef, pork, or, wild game will work

  • 2  16 oz. cans kidney beans drained
  • 1  14.5 oz. can beef
  • 1  15 oz. can dice tomatoes with juice
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cumin or to taste
  • 1/8 cup cornmeal set aside

Combine all ingredients except cornmeal in cooking pot cook on low for about 20 minutes then add the cornmeal a little at a time to thicken let simmer for another 20 minutes stirring occasionally.

If chili is too thick add a little water to thin

Serve with cornbread or by itself even if you’re not in survival mode this meal is really good. See our cornbread recipe
