Chili for a Chilly Night & 12/8 What's Cooking Wednesday

Today I want to share with you my FAVORITE chili recipe! It's a box mix, but I kind of spruce it up a little. Perfect for those cold winter nights :)




Get some ground beef cooking (about 1.5 - 2 lbs). Meanwhile, gather your ingredients. 2 Alarm chili seasoning (it's the best kind in my opinion), an 8 oz can of tomato sauce, a can of kidney beans, a can of pinto beans, and a can of Rotel tomatoes (or you could use diced tomatoes- we just didn't have any). Black beans would be really good too I bet!


Make sure the ground beef is cooked through. You can drain or you can not drain if your lazy like me to add extra flavor.


Then add the tomato sauce.


Then fill up the can from the tomato sauce with water and add that. Twice. So that's 2 8 oz cans of water.


Now it's time to add the seasonings from the box. That's a lot of seasoning! I think there's like a whole cup of chili powder. But that's what makes it yummy :)


Stir well and let it start coming to a boil.


Now up to this point, that's the recipe from the box. So if you're following the box, you let it cook for about 20 min or so. But if you want to spruce it up, continue... Add the can of kidney beans...


Then the can of pinto beans (and any other beans you want)...


Then the can of Rotel (or tomatoes). Let it cook until nice and yummy (like 20 minutes or so).


Top with cheese and sour cream and enjoy!



Mmmm... so good!




Alright, now for a few favorites from last week :)


Nancy, at NancyCreative, shares with us how to make Corn Dog Muffins! What a great idea and so easy to make! They remind me of little pig in a blankets but these take so much less time to make. Would be a great meal any time of the day :)
