So it’s day one of Ziggy and my 30 day running challenge, and let me tell you, where we are it is COLD unless you consider 28 degrees comfortable. To warm up, we decided to cook up some chili! Now, my mom is a champion chili cooker (not really but it’s good) and to compete with her was a difficult task to manage, but here’s how we did it.
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 2 cloves of chopped garlic
- 1 can of tomato sauce
- 1 T. of chili powder
- 1/2 T. of cumin
- 2 can of kidney beans
- 1 chopped onion
- 2 chopped peppers
- 1 package of McCormick chili seasoning
Cook the ground beef and garlic in a large chili pot until brown. Replace excess fat with tomato sauce! (Much healthier 🙂 ) Add chili powder, cumin, and chili seasoning to pot and mix. Place lid on pot and allow to simmer for about an hour. Once done, add beans, onion, peppers, and, if dry, canned bean juice (or water). Cook for fifteen more minutes, stirring occasionally, and serve!
We had our chili with shredded cheese and dollop of sour cream with a nice slice of Italian bread on the side. Yum!
Hope it’s as good as my mom’s. Enjoy!
