Today I made chili. It has been a rare but to us…wonderful rainy Chilly day. Perfect for chili.
*btw, I know there’s different schools of belief on chili…with/without beans. And ground beef or top sirloin. My son is the sirloin no beans one. I had a big family to feed…that means beans…and ground beef. Just sayin’…
Sautéed onions and green bell peppers. Okay…and a couple green chilies.
Then I added Seasonings
Touch of cinnamon
Fresh cracked pepper
Red pepper flakes (cayenne )
Smokey mesquite Seasoning
Stir until the aroma hits you
Add and brown ground beef.
Add crushed tomatoes
(Or what I had…home canned),
Favorite beans (we don’t usually find Brooks here)…
Add dash of sugar, desired amount of more chili powder…I use a lot!
Onion powder, garlic, oregano & cumin.
Saute for at least an hour…the longer the better.
(Going by memory….hope I remembered everything. )
