Chili

chiliI love chili. I make it several ways – and I chose a more classic version of it to make on this cold and snowy day. It’s loaded full of veggies, a bit of beef and is a thick hearty chili.

Ingredients:
1 pound lean ground beef
30 oz diced tomatoes
15 oz tomato sauce
15 oz black beans, rinsed
15 oz pinto beans, rinsed
1/2 cup water
15 oz corn
2 celery stalks, diced
1/2 an onion, diced
1 pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
salt and pepper, to taste

chili3Put the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes in a large pot over medium heat. Add in the cumin, chili powder, diced pepper, beans, corn, and celery. Depending on how thick you like your chili add a bit of water, I used 1/2 cup.

in a large skillet, place the diced onion and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes then add in the beef and salt and pepper. Cook until browned and add to the large pot. Cook everything together over low heat for 20 minutes. Serves 6. Also works well in a crock pot. Top with sour cream, cheese, or toppings of choice.
