I Love Olive Chili Sandwiches

Some say love, it is a river
That grows the olive trees
Some say love, it is a razor
That cuts the ground beef
I say love it is a hunger
For a bowl of 365’s Chili

Indeed, love is enigmatic to most (not me though, I have it all figured out, just ask me.) The question remains- What’s the mystery behind the chili sandwiches? It’s no secret that I like to have olive chili in the days leading up to a long race. Oh yeah, and we need to use up some near-stale bread. The final uncertainty is this- Will this chili be love at first bite? That is anyone’s guess, but we’ll see if this recipe learns to dance.


1 lb ground beef
1 C shredded carrots
2 T green onion, diced
½ C canned diced tomatoes
1 C vegetable juice
2 T brown sugar
2 T chili powder
1 t coriander
1 t garlic powder
2/3 C Sliced green olives
1 T yellow mustard


1) Fry beef and drain.
2) Add remaining ingredients (except olives and mustard) and simmer 30 minutes.
3) Add olives and mustard and heat through.
4) Serve on bread.

Tasting notes:

It looks like Mrs. Chili 365 doesn’t like green olives or sandwiches. How did I get mixed up in this? Umm- Fortunately, the ITP stepped up and ate some pretty good chili. While it was not love at first bite, the “I love olive chili sandwiches” and I had a nice night together. I promise, I will call it. Soon. sometime.
