Mama's Chili Recipe

Alas, the secret is out! Here's the recipe for the most mouth-watering, delicious chili ever! (IMHO)

  • 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)
