Recipe Yield

This recipe is intended to be made in multiple hotel-pan batches. If the desired total is not a multiple of the hotel-pan yield, a partial pan may be made with adjustments to the amounts listed in the directions.

Chef Tip

For more complex flavor, consider making your own chili powder. Blend together 3 parts chili powder, 2 parts ground cumin, 2 parts paprika, 1 part crushed red pepper and 1 part oregano.

For a looser consistency, increase the stock by up to 1 cup.

Serving Tip

Serve the chili in a bowl and offer toppings such as shredded cheese, chopped red onions, chopped cilantro and sliced jalapeños.
