{recipe: rainy day chili}

 {It was a kinda-cold, stormy day...and that makes me want some chili.}

  • 2 lbs. ground chuck
  • 1 red onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1 can fire roasted (diced) tomatoes w/ green chilies
  • 1 can pinto beans
  • 1 can dark red kidney beans
  • 2 tbsp. chili powder (or more if that's how you like it!)
  • 1.5-2 tbsp. mexican spice blend
  • 1 cup hot water 
how to:

  • (in dutch oven) toss chopped onions and cook over med-high heat until soft.
  • remove most of the onions (set aside, leaving a few to add flavor to the beef) and put beef in the pot.
  • brown the beef. using a mesh strainer, drain off fat, then return to pot.
  • toss cooked onions back into the pot
  • drain and rinse both beans and add to pot
  • add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes (do not drain)
  • add all spices and hot water
  • stir together, reduce heat to medium-low, cover and let simmer for at least an hour, stirring occasionally.
