Dad’s Tavern Chili - Recipe Cost

Cost information for the following is not included. Normally this is because the quantity or ingredient is unknown
1 1/2 pounds ground round or sirloin or other lean beef, coarse-grind preferred * (see note)
NOTE: The meat is not drained after browning because being lowfat it isn’t necessary and doing so would mean a loss of the onion/pepper juices and flavors as well
