I love soups and stews in the fall and winter. Chili is super easy and fast to whip up when it's cold outside. It's one of those recipes that everyone has but we all make it different. This recipe is very mild heat(good for kids) and is great as is or you could easily add more heat if that's what you prefer.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 med-large onion chopped
- 1 green pepper chopped
- 3 cloves garlic chopped
- 1-15 oz can chili beans with sauce
- 1-15 oz can dark red kidney beans, drained
- 2-14.5 oz diced tomatoes (or 1-28 oz can)
- 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 4-5 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp basil
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp salt
Brown ground beef, onions, green pepper and garlic. Drain fat. Add all the rest of ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to simmer at least 20 minutes. You can add more salt, pepper and chili powder to taste. If you want to spice it up more sprinkle in some crushed red pepper flakes. Serve with crackers or corn bread.
