The weather is cold so now it's time to plan out those meals of soups, stews and yes Chili.
My Chili recipe has been around for many years, more than I will admit. :)
On busy nights fixing a huge pot of Chili is so easy to prepare early in the day. Chili does have a way of getting better as it sits in the refrigerator, so don't be afraid to make a big pot the day before.
You may double this recipe if you want to make a large batch of Chili.
2 pound of hamburger
Salt and pepper to taste
¼ cup chopped onions sauté in olive oil (optional)
1 can diced roasted tomatoes 8oz (or for spicy chili 1 can Rotel original)
¼ cup Chili powder
1 can chili beans or 2 cups cooked dried red beans (optional)
For spicy Texas style chili
1 teaspoon chipotle Chili
½ teaspoon Ancho Chili
Cheddar cheese to garnish
Add salt and pepper to the hamburger in medium size pot with a lid, brown the hamburger and drain the grease. Sauté the chopped onions in olive oil in a small skillet and add to the hamburger. Stir in the chili powder, (chipotle & Ancho powder) and add the roasted tomatoes or a can of Rotel and simmer for 1 to 2 hours until cook together.
Can make this the day before.
Garnish with cheddar cheese and fresh bread or Crackers.
Happy Halloween & Happy Fall to everyone.
