STEP 2. CHILI ADDITIVES: (Has 3-simple steps.) Place the ½ onion, garlic, yellow bell pepper, pickle, and roma tomatoes into the Chef Vinni’s manual food processor, rock the handle a couple times to break up the large chunks and then spin the handle quickly until all contents are chopped finely. (My product allows you to save chop everything in 10-seconds that will save you the normal 15-minutes of hand chopping.) Then dump the chopped contents into the pot and simmer as low heat for 20-minutes. Assign a person in your house to stir every 5-minutes so nothing sticks to the pan as you prepare the rest.
STEP 3. GRILL: Fire up your grill and while the coals are getting grill ready (approx. 10 to 15 min.) start making the burger meat patties.

Then hand roll 4 to 6 meatballs. Then use a plate to press the patties.
STEP 5. GRILL: Place on the patties & peppers and grill. (5-min. medium rare; 10-minutes well done.) Add the buns to toast in the last 3-minutes.
STEP 6. PREP THE CONDIMENTS: Slice the big tomato and grade the cheddar cheese. (Use Vinni’s manual food processor to slice & grade the cheese (Julienne slicer for the cheese.) Then hand-place the leaves of lettuce.
STEP 7. GRILLED PEPPERS: Take the grilled peppers and chop them in Vinni’s manual food processor then dump them into the simmering pot of chili and stir.
STEP 8: ASSEMBLE & SERVE: (5-simple steps.) Place on the meat patty, the sliced tomato, the lettuce, a layer of the chili, cheese, add the top bun, and then smother the burger in more chili and top with more cheese.
