Set out bowls of shredded Cheddar cheese, sour cream and plenty of crackers to top this hearty chili.


3 lbs. your choice of big-game burger
3 medium onions – chopped
3 medium green peppers – chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery

2 tbs. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

In a dutch oven, brown the meat over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.
