Recipe Tips

  1. 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.
  2. Serve the chili in a bowl and offer toppings such as Spicy Cilantro Yogurt Sauce, chopped red onion, chopped cilantro and sliced jalapeño.
  3. Make a large batch of spice mix ahead of time and use 2/3 c. per hotel pan.
  4. The Meat/Meat Alternate contribution is calculated on an ounce-to-ounce basis. If using a product that requires more than 1 ounce to meet the ounce equivalent, the recipe will require adjustment in order to meet the stated M/MA contribution.
