This recipe incorporates on of my favorite chili seasoning mixes and lots of canned ingredients that give the chili a simmered for hours kind of flavor. It's also something that could be thrown in the crock pot and kept warm if you are having a football party or other gathering where people will be arriving and eating at different times. Here's a picture of the chili mix I use:
It comes with all of these pre-measured seasoning packets.
2 lbs. Ground Beef
1 large onion chopped - reserve about 1/4 of it for garnish
28 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
29 oz can Tomato Sauce
1 15 oz can Chili Beans (I used Bush's brand this time but sometimes I use Ranch Style brand)
1 package of Wick Fowler 2 Alarm Chili Mix
Whatever you like on your chili!!
Brown beef and onions together until meat is cooked and onions are wilted. Drain off any excess liquid and fat. Add all remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve with your favorite garnishes. This will serve between 8 and 12 people, just depends on how hungry everyone is!
Pretty simple and quick!!! Now for the best part, the pictures!
The finished product!
Deliciousness in a bowl!!
This recipe would also be very easy to convert to a vegiterian version. Just substitute the meat for more beans and throw in some squash and zucchini and voila, a veggie lovers dream!
