OK, raise your hand if you know the difference between a CLOVE of garlic and a BULB of garlic. I was unable to count myself as "garlic enlightened" during my maiden voyage on this chili recipe...The year was 1996. My lovely bride, Jenny, and I had been recently married, and I wanted to demonstrate to her my prowess in the kitchen. "Chili," I thought, "I can do a good chili...why, I really like chili and it seems pretty easy to prepare." I found a recipe I was happy with and got to work. I started at the beginning and slowly made my way through the ingredients. I was cruising along nicely until I hit the garlic. "2 CLOVES garlic, minced," read the recipe. "Hmm," I thought, "That seems like a lot of garlic, but I am sticking to the recipe." I proceeded to mince, without the help of a garlic press mind you, 2 big BULBS of Garlic. It seriously took me about 3 hours just to do the garlic. By about the 2 hour mark, I was cursing this chili...promising never to make this blasted dish again. I finally finished and let it cook in the Crock Pot for a few hours. Needless to say, it was a bit...how can I put this..."Garlicky." Being the proud Madsen (Larson Fortney) Man that I am, I ate the entire pot over the next few days. I have been making this chili ever since...and love it...especially when it contains 2 CLOVES of garlic :-)
