Chili with Beans - On a bitter cold day, you want CHILI

Pin It Now!

Three reasons to enjoy a bowl of heart warming Chili...

Cause it's good anytime!


Bitter nasty cold, what could be better?


Go Chiefs (Crap),
Go Bears (Crap Again),
Go Saints (Double Crap, wouldn't that have been amazing since the game is played in New Orleans this year?),
Go Patriots (Sigh and Crap)

Sounds like it's Chili Makin' time

 A wise man once said that after the age of 18 or so the world's best pizza is from the greasy spoon pizzeria that you went to growing up.  Everything, no matter how artisanal is measured by those sweet memories of youth.

For me, that;s really not true, I have grown to love and appreciate a different style of pizza from my youth.  But I can say that there is nothing like this warm comfort food that I have known for years.

Any and all chili's are measured and found wanting by this recipe... At least to me.

Here's what I do...

Exquisite Bohemian Chili 
2 lbs ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 large can of tomato sauce
1 can of diced tomatoes (any flavor, drained)
2 cans of chili beans or kidney beans (drain and rinse kidney beans)
3 Tbsp chili powder (or to taste) 

Serve HOT and Enjoy!
Brown hamburger and onion. Add remainder of ingredients and simmer. I use a crock pot for 3-4 hours. 
** If it is too thick, I add Chicken Stock, if it is too soupy, I add tomato paste.

Yes, it has beans and i know that real Chili freaks go crazy when they see beans in chili.  Live with it.

And yes, ground meat instead of steak cubes (same Chili freaks want steak cubes).  Live with that too.


So,  I am pleased to list this as one of my Growing list of  "52 Recipes for Soup, Chili or Chowder" (Now more than 52 and still growing)

Soup from Scratch is one of the great kitchen joys.  The house smells amazing and the soup warms to the bone.  From broth to chowder, vegetarian to loaded up chili... Even a great idea for a party (love the Potato Soup Bar idea).  Come take a look, sure to have something you might like to try.  All recipes have been tested and WORK!
