From John Szwed’s Miles Davis biography, So What: The Life of Miles Davis. Page 145:

Miles Davis’s South Side Chicago Chili Mack

1 tablespoon bacon grease
2 pounds ground lean chuck
salt and pepper
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
3 large cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 can tomatoes
1 can beef broth
1/2 jar of mustard
1/2 shot glass of vinegar
pinto or kidney beans

Apparenlty there were no instructions in the book on how to prepare Miles’ Chili Mack. But I did find the method here, you know, if you’re curious or want to test it out for yourself.
