Thought I’d share this wonderful, easy chili recipe with you!
I love homemade chili. It is so much better than chili in the can, and I’m sure it is better for you too since you have control over the ingredients. Serve it with cheese and sour cream and maybe even some green onions on top for a wonderfully delicious flavor!
I got this easy chili recipe from allrecipes.com, but I did make a couple small changes to it to add more flavor.
Easy Chili Recipe Homemade
1 pound ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans
1 1/2 cups water
1 pinch chili powder (I think it tastes much better with about a tablespoon)
1 pinch garlic powder (I use about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 pinch of cummin seed(I added this one)
1 tiny pinch of ground cayenne red pepper(I also added this one)
salt and pepper to taste
1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine the beef and onion and saute until meat is browned and onion is tender. Add the stewed tomatoes with juice, tomato sauce, beans and water.
2. Season with chili powder, garlic powder, cummin, salt/pepper, and red pepper.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the chili and let simmer for 15 minutes. You can also let it simmer longer if you want to let the spices blend even more. I’ve simmered for up to an hour and the chili tastes great!
So that’s it! I hope you enjoy this wonderful, tasty, homemade easy chili recipe. Try it out and let me know what you think 🙂
