Because it's been so chilly lately... in a slight departure from our normal Wednesday posts, I thought it might be chili, for you folks, as well.
Chili con carne, that is! With my mom's world famous (well, okay, it will be now that I've posted this online) recipe.
So, as the winds howl and the snow flakes down, I hope you'll find warmth and comfort with a nice steaming bowl of goodness.
- Ground beef (1 lb)
- Minced onion 1/4 cup
- Kidney beans (3 cans)
- Crushed Italian Style tomatoes in puree (1 can)
- Hunt's Tomato Sauce (3 cans)
- Chili powder
- Grated Parmesean/Romano Cheese
Brown the ground beef and onions in margarine. Drain on papertowels. Place the beef-onion mixture in a Crockpot or large pot on Low heat. Drain the kidney beans and add to the pot. Also add crushed tomatoes in puree, and three cans of tomato sauce. Add chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano and basil to taste.
Cook about 6 hours, or until desired consistency.
After chili has cooked down, add grated cheese to taste.
I will be making some of this myself this weekend.

Hope you all have a terrific week.
