Chili {What’s For Dinner Thursday!}

I love chili…we eat it all the time!  We certainly don’t limit it to fall and winter.  But since it's now officially fall I thought that I’d share our recipe. 

september 2009 008

What will you need?

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large can crushed or diced tomatoes
  • 1 regular can tomato sauce
  • 1 cans light or dark red kidney beans
  • 1 can spicy chili beans
  • 1 chili season packet
  • chili powder to taste
  • 1/4 chopped onion
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper

What do you do?

  1. Add meat and all the seasons but the season packet, brown and drain your ground beef.  Add chili season packet {fill this packet with water and pour in}.  Add onion and garlic and crushed tomatoes.
  2. In blender or food processor add 1/2 of the can of tomato sauce and 1 can beans, blend well, pour into pot.  Add the remainder sauce and other can of beans, blend well, pour into pot.  {this is optional but the reason this recipe won a blue ribbon at a church chili cook off}
  3. Bring to a boil and then simmer for at least an hour.  This chili is so much better after simmering all day long.

We serve this with grated cheese and a dollop of sour cream.  Grilled cheese and crackers are also the norm as well.  Enjoy!

Yummy! Rondell only likes chili in the winter but I can eat it anytime. I'm so bad, I have not been cooking much at all.

I agree with Kelli...I have not been cooking much during the week cause of so many different things going on in the afternoon.

Your chilli sounds yummy! I make mine about like this but we only eat it in the fall and winter...I know strange I say.
