Now, I have to say, that I'm not much of a cook:o, thankfully my hubby is though!!! So, on Sunday night, he made some homemade chili and it was delish. All of the credit goes towards him:)
|Doesn't it look tasty?|
This is a Texas style chili, so it called for ALOT of meat!
2lbs very lean ground beef or diced chuck steak
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 teaspoons paprika
1 onion finely chopped or 2 tablespoons of minced dried onions
2 teaspoons of salt
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons masa
2 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (15 oz) can red beans
1(15oz) can tomatoes (whole or diced, drained)
First, brown ground beef and drain. Stir in tomato sauce and 4 cans of water. Mix all ingredients except cayenne pepper and masa. Simmer 30 minutes. Sprinkle in as much pepper as wanted. Mix masa and 1/4 c. warm water. Add to chili and stir. Then add tomatoes and beans. Simmer 20 minutes.
It is very tasty, especially on these cold and rainy/snowy days we have been having. Don't you love our new dish set that we got from our wedding?
My hubby is allergic to beans, so he was kind enough to make me a separate batch of chili with the beans! Isn't he just wonderful? This chili is pretty thick, so you may want to add 1 more can of tomato sauce. Otherwise, enjoy and be merry:)
For the 24 Days of Giving Thanks, today I am thankful for my brother! He is the most thoughtful brother you could have:) When we were growing up, we were always pretty close and it still is that way. When we hang out together, he always listens to what I have to say and every once in a while will go shopping with me without complaining! That's a pretty awesome brother, right? So, he is the best brother I could have asked for:) Love you Bub!
