Cold Weather Chili

Dec 07 2017

Turned cold so it was time for a pot of chili for last nights supper. For years each batch of chili was a little different. My wife said why don’t you get a good recipe and stick to it. I am now keeping pretty consistent with my recipe.Following is my basic recipe.
1 to 1 ½ lbs ground chuck
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 - 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes
1 can beans for chili, I used Bush’s
½ can of beer
1 cup beef broth
3 TBS chili powder or to taste
½ teaspoon cumin
Hot sauce to taste
If you like more beans add a can of pinto or little red beans

I brown the beef and drain off the grease then add the chopped onions and cook until soft then add in the chili powder and cook a while. Then add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Bring all to a boil then turn down to a simmer and cook 2 to 3 hours. After an hour check for seasoning.

The wife and I like shredded cheese on top and sometimes sour cream served with saltine crackers and butter. Last nights chili was great.
