A Chili Fancipe From Dede Griesbauer, a Three-Time IRONMAN Champion

A three-time IRONMAN Champion and ten-time NCAA All-American swimmer at Stanford, Dede Griesbauer knows what it takes to compete and win at the highest levels. And when it comes to nutrition, Dede has found there are lots of benefits to fueling her body with a quality lean protein like Certified Piedmontese beef.

"Certified Piedmontese has been a key part of my diet for the last two years. It has transformed me from a picky eater ('I won't eat that'), to a reluctant eater ('I'll eat it because I know it's good for me'), to an outright carnivore ('Can we have red meat again tonight?'). It's healthy, giving me essential protein and iron. It's lean, making it easy to digest and good for a conscious eater. And it just tastes dang good."

Just in time for cooler weather, here's Dede's favorite chili recipe. It has a short ingredient list. It's easy. It's delicious (it's won two chili cook-off competitions!). And it freezes well. Can you ask for anything more from a chili recipe? Give it a try tonight!

Just a few ingredients, delicious, AND it freezes well. Can you ask for anything more from a chili recipe?

Davey G's Award Winning Chili

Serves 6

1½ pounds Certified Piedmontese ground beef

½ medium onion, chopped

4 cloves garlic, minced (we add more because who doesn’t love garlic?)

1 can black beans

1 can kidney beans

1 teaspoon salt

1 can Campbell’s Tomato Soup (yes, really)

2 tablespoons chili powder

¼ tablespoon oregano

Brown the beef, onions and garlic. Remove grease. (With Certified Piedmontese beef, there won’t be much!)

Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Cornbread makes a nice accompaniment, but certainly not required. Enjoy! Train hard. Recover well with Certified Piedmontese!
