Chilly Out so Chili In Tonight

Oct 08 2016

A pretty day but the winds made it feel pretty chilly. I have been hungry for chili so it was a nice day to fix a batch. I knew the wife likes thick sauce chili but I was hungry for my Wendy’s style chili with a thinner sauce. I used my Instant Pot and next time I will get some ground round 90-10 mix and do it all in the pot. I had a pound and half of ground chuck 80-20 so I used a CI skillet to brown it; that made it easier to drain off most of the fat.

After browning the beef I added all to the pot and mixed well. I put it on sauté until it boiled a while then went to slow cook normal mode.  It was on over 4 hours when we ate. I did correct the seasoning with more chili powder and salt. I only used 1 can of beans and since I just had 1 ½ pounds of beef I just added 3 cups of water. In the ingredients pic the celery is missing, I thought the wife was coming home after church with it but she did other running before!  I added it in later.

We both had it with saltines and butter and didn’t want any toppings. You see I did add some more mustard to mine; I like that more sour taste it gives it.
