Chili con Carne

One of our favorite meals is chili. I had some ground beef and did not want to go through the whole chili process, so I decided to make Chili con Carne. It was so good. I wish I would have made more.

Here is what you will need:

  • 1 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chili peppers
  • 1 can diced chili ready tomatoes
  • 1 (6 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 ounce shredded cheese
  • Brown beef with onions and garlic over medium high heat in same skillet
  • Combine meat mixture,tomatoes, tomato sauce,  chili powder, cumin, pepper [beans if you used them] into a medium sized pot, stir, cover and simmer for 90 minutes

I LOVED this dinner. It was a great alternative to regular chili. This would be great paired with some tortilla chips for Super Bowl Sunday... it'd be easy enough to put it all in a crock pot, cook and leave it until all of your guests come over!! 

Until next time, happy creating!
