Since it was so cool last night and the weather forecasters have uttered that nasty word (snow) for around here, I have decided it's time to make my first pot of chili. Love this recipe. It's supposed to be like the fast food restaurant's chili. Over the years I have modified mine and here's what I've ended up with:
INGREDIENTS:2 pounds ground beef
1 can (29 ounce size) tomato sauce
1 can (29 ounce size) kidney beans with liquid
1 can (29 ounce size) pinto beans with liquid
1 medium onion, diced
2 cans Del Monte cut tomatoes - zesty chili style
1 rib celery, diced - I leave this out often
2 teaspoons cumin powder
2-3 tablespoons chili powder (Depending on preference)
1 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 cup water
Brown the onions and then add beef and brown. Then drain the fat off. Crumble the cooked beef into pea size pieces. In a large pot, combine the beef plus the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cook stirring every 15 minutes for 3-4 hours.
