As you can imagine, I get a ton of recipes crossing my desk throughout the course of a year, especially this past year when we were working on Amish Cooks Across America.  I thought it’d be fun for you to see a recipe exact as I get it, this one is from the Swartzentruber Amish settlement in Ethridge, Tennessee.  The recipe is written in paragraph style and should show up enough in this photo for you to read.  If you decide to try it, let me know how it turns out!  This recipe didn’t make the cut for the book because we had too many recipes from Ethridge, we just didn’t have the space.

    Made it. Im in Detroit, So it was excrutiatingly HOT these past few days- but who can resist Chili or Chili Soup?? So i made this EXACTLY how its written, Ive never used Tomato juice- just plain Tomato juice but I did for this. Its good- really good- But just a tad bland.

    • Thanks, Jackie..any suggestions on how to spice it up a bit? My father likes bland, so that’d be right up his alley, but I like a little kick to my chili…

      • Sriracha! It spices everything up. :D

        I’m surprised that the recipe only calls for chili powder and salt. I have taco seasoning mix on hand that I make in bulk and I would use that for the seasonings instead and boost it with some fresh garlic and black pepper.

    I can taste this even before I make it! I am going to let it cook down more to a thick consistancy and lavish it over a mustered hot dog! It’s gonna be yum!
