Kid approved Chili Recipe
I don't usually share recipes on my Blog...well...I actually have NEVER shared a recipe on my Blog...quite frankly because it has nothing to do with crafting or crocheting, BUT it totally does fall under the CREATING category which is what my blog says it's about...right?! YES!
I also must share the fact that I have a rather "boring" palette...sorry...I use to be one of those "picky" eaters...I maybe sorta kinda still am...just NOT as bad!!LOL
As I have mentioned before I am a mother of 5...you can bet your booty I got myself a "picky" eater!
(1 out of 5 isn't too bad though..hey?!)
So I thought I would share with you my...yes...MY chili recipe...with the cool fall weather and soon to be cold winter weather...moving in
unless you are one of those that chose to live in the "summer" all year round ;)......
I figured chili is a good recipe to share!
Now my family and I think this Chili is "the bomb"! I don't claim it to win any "chili" contests in any sort of way...heck...with my palette... I probably wouldn't even TRY most of those chilli's!LOL!
Let's get started....Apron ON!
1 lb. Ground beef
(you could also add 1/2 lb. ground pork to this...would be yummy!)
1 15.25oz. can kidney beans
2 14.5 oz. can(or 1 LARGE can) Diced tomatoes
(sold in hot and mild..that's your call!)
(sold by the taco seasoning and gravy packets)
cheddar or mozzarella cheese
crackers, corn chips, tortilla chips
and last BUT certainly not least...a tradition for us and maybe for many...
where we grew up...they just simply went together...you didn't have chili...unless you had Cinnamon rolls to go with it..it's bordering on "sin"! ;)
see...not THAT much to it!
first...saute your onion in a little(1 T.) butter or margarine
I use about 1/2 of a small to medium onion
then go ahead and toss in your beef(and ground pork if adding)
fry it up...
make sure it is COMPLETELY cooked through!
and add some garlic...I buy a big bottle of chopped garlic..but i use to use garlic powder...
Add your salt, pepper, and about 1 T. chili powder to your meat.
add about 1 C. Ketchup
to me...this Chili left like this is TOO thick! We like ours more soupy!
I add water till it fills the pan FULL! ;)
(sorry...this pic got a little blurred..you get the idea though...right?!)
if you like it thicker, add less water...but do add just enough water to cover the "chili"
add your bay leaf...
I have a slight confession to make...I DID NOT have Cinnamon rolls on this day..I KNOW! I'm SORRY!
BUT...I had a loaf of french bread that I SLATHERED in butter then added some cinnamon sugar to and baked...it was my CINNAMON ROLL substitute...it wasn't the same...but it was still YUMMY!
Thanks for visiting ~Couture Unraveled~

Have a WONDERFUL DAY!!
