Issue #9 – Solar Cooker Chili Recipe

Take a good look at the Chili Recipe Circles Magazine found. We chose this recipe because it was simple and easy to experiment with the Solar Cooker we put together. The Solar Cooker is perfect to cook outdoors with no gas or electricity needed. We mixed all the ingredients together, dumped it in a large black pot, covered the pot with a clear plastic bag, and let it cook under the position of the sun for at least five hours.
