2 pounds ground round beef
1 pound ground pork
5 cups chopped onions
1 1/2 tablespoons garlic chopped
7 tablespoons chili powder
2 cans chopped green chili peppers
3 cans crushed tomatoes -- (16 oz)
3 tablespoons tomato paste
4 pieces bay leaves -- crumbled
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon grown sugar
32 ounces red kidney beans
1 package corn chips
1 head lettuce -- shredded
12 ounces sharp cheddar cheese -- shredded

Preparation / Directions:

I had this when visiting friends in N'awlins. He didn't know the source of the recipe, but this was sure passable chili. In a large, heavy pot, brown the meat with the onions and the garlic. Drain off the fat and stir in the chili powder (depending on quality, you may want more - we get real cool stuff up here in the north). Add chilies, tomatoes, tomato paste, bay leaves, salt, oregano, vinegar, and brown sugar. Cover the pot and cook for 2 hours over low heat. Add beans and cook, uncovered, 30 minutes more. Serve with side dishes of corn chips, shredded lettuce, and shredded Cheddar chees
