Hi, Lisa…I know you wrote this some time back and I too have attempted to find the brick chili and found out they no longer make it. I have the original bucketshop recipe that my deceased Mom gave to me years ago since I lived too far away to get the beefburgers. I have had to improvise a bit since I can’t use the brick chili, so this is what I do…
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
onions (I like a lot but you can add according to your taste.
2 tblsps. dry mustard
2 tblsps. of vinegar
1 tblsp. chili powder (not the package but the small bottles)
*This is what I add and it may sound silly but it is as close as I can get….I open 2 cans of chili beans and I only use this juice (don’t put them in-just save for salads or another type of recipe). I pour this juice in with the beef.
I also add a small amount of tomato sause (not much) as my husband likes it better.
This is as close as I can get without the Rice’s Brick Chili! Let me know if it works for you! Good luck
