Posted on Leave a comment
  • Olive oil, for sauteing
  • 2 stalks celery, finely diced
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 pounds ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon Fat Boy Cowgirl Rub or chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 15 ounces Uncle Walt’s Bloody Mary Mix, plus more if needed
  • 1/4 cup vodka, optional
  • 1 tablespoon Fat Boy Steak Rub
  • Several dashes Trail Blazer Wing & Hot Sauce, or to taste
  • Several dashes Worcestershire sauce, or to taste
  • One 15-ounce can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • One 15-ounce can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

In a large pot over medium heat, add some olive oil and saute the celery and onions until soft. Add the garlic and stir, then add the ground beef. Cook until browned, 5 to 10 minutes; drain off the excess fat. Stir in the Cowgirl Rub or chili powder, cumin and oregano.

In a pitcher, mix up the Bloody Mary mix, vodka if using, steak rub, hot sauce and Worcestershire and add it to the pot. Add the kidney and pinto beans, stir together well, cover and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Add more Bloody Mary mix or water if needed during simmering.
