Tailgating chili with Famous Dave's

Tailgating season is here. 

Famous Dave's pitmaster Kaycee Schmidt joined us on The Nine to show us how to make chili with a twist. You can watch in the video player above, and get the recipe below. 

Serve it up with some diced onions, shredded cheddar and a dollop of sour cream! Serves a party of 8. 

3 lbs. 80/20 ground chuck
4 TBSP Superior Touch Better Than Bouillon Beef Base 

In a large sauté pan, flatten out the ground chuck and add the beef base. Brown the meat but don't crush it. Leave as many big chunks as possible but be sure it's cooked thoroughly.
Once cooked, transfer into a large stock pot and leave the juices in the pan.   
1 cup sweet onion, diced
1 cup green bell pepper, diced
1 cup celery, diced  

In the remaining juices, sauté onions, peppers and celery. Once the onions start to turn translucent, transfer veggies to the stock pot.
