Carole's Chili

User Rating:  / 0

This is an easy to throw together recipe, and it’s a great one to throw together and let simmer a little the night before so you have dinner ready when you come home from a cold busy day. Just heat it up on the stove instead of the microwave. It tastes better.


Carole’s Chili

1 lb. Lean ground beef, browned and drained

1 14.5 oz. Can petite diced tomatoes – not seasoned

1 12 oz. Can tomato paste, plus 1 can water

2 cans dark red kidney beans – not seasoned

2 teaspoons garlic powder

2 teaspoons chili powder

1 teaspoon red pepper

¼ teaspoon cumin

Mix it all together, mixing very well. Bring to just boiling. Lower heat to very low. Cover and simmer for at least ½ hour. (Told you it was easy.) Take cover off and let it sit for a few minutes to thicken.

Tastes better the next day.

Optional toppings – grated cheese, diced onion, oyster crackers

Serve with tossed salad and warm French bread.

Use any leftovers to make chili dogs topped with grated cheddar cheese - Yum!
