Soups & Stews
President Lyndon B. Johnson's wife, Lady Bird, used to share this classic cowboy chili recipe freely with her guests.
This basic stock can be used in a variety of dishes. We use it to poach salmon and to make consommé.
Because it must make an impact in just one bite, competition chili is often too rich and salty for plain eating. We prefer this recipe from Carter Rochelle, a native Houstonian and chili connoisseur.
