CHILI on a Chilly Day

image

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
Garlic
Chili powder
Red pepper flakes (cayenne )
Hungarian paprika
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.
Enjoy!

(Going by memory….hope I remembered everything. )

  1. This looks so delicious and hearty. And finally here in Michigan, we are getting a cold snap and a bad winter storm coming tonight. I think a pot of chili would be in order! Thanks for another wonderful post.

    • ♡ thank you! Enjoy! I am from Michigan myself. Raised my family on a farm/horse stables there. It was a GOOD thing. They are so grateful, with great memories.
