Award Winning Cheesy Chili

I can’t tell you how many times people have stopped me and asked when I was going to get this recipe up on my blog.  Patients young Padawan.  At long last here is the official 2013 Grand Champion Chili!


So for all you Jedi chili makers out there……Big D’s Award Winning Cheesy Chili!

A couple of weeks ago in preparation for this week I made 3 chilis in one day and invited our small group families over to help us eat it all.  This chili was not only the winner of the chili cook-off at our church, but it was the clear favorite with our small group!  I had to quickly rescue a bowl to photograph for this post before it was all gone!

Maybe some of you instagram friends remember this picture….

IMG_0726I posted it with the caption “Mountain of secret Award Winning Chili ingredient;)!”.  I guess because I knew what the secret ingredient was it never occurred to me what it looked like.  Butter.  I very quickly had people commenting sort of panicylike regarding whether the ingredient was butter…please say that’s cheese not butter, OMG is that butter???  OMG it does look like butter!  Egads that would be secretly awful actually…and you all know how much I love me some buttah.

Nope it’s not butter, it’s a whole two pounds of Velveeta cheese, maybe to some of you there isn’t much difference.  I’m sorry.  Velveeta is just dang good.  I honestly can’t live with out it.  Please love me, don’t judge me for my nutritional short comings.

Velveeta will you marry me.

Forgive me Lord for I know not what I do….
