Mama's Chili Recipe

Alas, the secret is out!

Here's the recipe for the most mouth-watering, delicious chili ever! (In My Humble Opinion)

2 cans tomato sauce
1 can light red kidney beans
1 can dark red kidney beans
1 and a half cups of water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 and 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 pounds pre-cooked ground beef or beef chunks like you put in stew
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green bell pepper

  • First you must open the cans of kidney beans and tomato sauce and pour them into the pot.(Don't drain the kidney beans, just pour it all in)

  • Chop up 1 cup green bell pepper and 1 cup onion
    (Don't touch your eyes while chopping up the onion!! Ouch!)

  • Saute the onion and pepper in water

  • Measure out your spices... ...and add them to the pot. (stir)

  • Take your 1 and 1/2 pounds of beef (or more, if you like meaty chili) and add that to the pot.

  • When the onion and pepper is done sauteing, add that to the pot also ...Simmer on medium-low for approximately 30 minutes, or at least until the flavors blend and the kidney beans are all cooked.

  • Then... ENJOY!

(Goes excellently with noodles, potatoes, crackers, or nacho chips & cheese...actually, you can eat chili with just about anything!)
