I had a big craving for chili the other day so I made my standby recipe which my husband and I just love. Unfortunately, my kids don’t care for Chili so he and I have been eating it for days, and needless to say my house has not been smelling like roses!! Sorry, TMI, I know!
But seriously, this is a really easy and delicious recipe. I love how much protein you get by eating a bowl of Chili! Enjoy!
Yield: one big pot
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 can pinto beans
- 1 can great northern beans
- 1 can red beans
- 1 can kidney beans
- (You can substitute other types of beans. I like black beans and Cannellini beans)
- 28 oz. can tomato sauce
- one chopped onion (onion chopping tutorial)
- 1 packet chili seasoning (I like to use the reduced sodium ones and not too spicy because I have kids…who won’t eat my chili!)
Directions: Brown the ground beef in bottom of pot. Drain fat, if necessary. Add onion and cook until tender. Add the chili seasonings and beans. I like to drain off just the top of the bean liquid. Add the tomato sauce. Stir well and heat until hot. Simmer for a little while to meld the flavors all together. Serve with Fritos, sour cream, cheese, green onions, avocado, corn bread, or whatever you want!
