Fabulous food to cook for your dude!
There is nothing I hate more than Mondays. It’s the most exhausting day of the week, so the last thing I want to do is cook when I get home from work. Sunday night, I decided to make my great grandmother’s chili recipe. I knew it would make a TON of chili, meaning I could take the night off from cooking and relax Monday night after work since I would have so many leftovers. I was SO right (I love when that happens).
It was delicious. I love chili (and so does my boyfriend-what guy DOESN’T love chili?!) Sunday night, we ate it spooned over some brown rice (pictured). Monday night, we ate it with corn bread (that my boyfriend made!) Chili is a yummy, filling meal that lasts for days. It’s the perfect dish to cook before the start of a busy week. You can eat it plain, over rice, with cornbread, over a baked potato, or in a sourdough bread bowl. And it’s cheap to make! Plus, you can add your own ingredients to make it more fun. Lets get to the recipe!
1 lb. ground beef
3 cans kidney beans (I did 2 cans dark red, and 1 can light red because I like the different colors of the beans.)
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 white onion, diced
2 large cloves of garlic minced or shredded
2 tbsp. cumin
2 tbsp. chili powder
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine your meat, diced onion, garlic, cumin and chili powder in a non stick skillet (do not grease your pan.)
Cook until the meat is done and the onions are golden brown (about 6-8 minutes). Drain your meat and onion mixture to get rid of all of the grease.
In a large pot, combine your 3 cans of beans, meat and onion mixture, and 2 cans of diced tomatoes. Stir well, and heat on medium low for about 8 minutes. Make sure everything in your pot is nice an hot! Add salt and pepper to taste (mine needed a lot of salt, but I tried to hold back since it’s not good for you.)
And that’s it. You’re done. So quick and easy! I filled up 2 Tupperware bowls with leftovers.
Chili for days!
