    Getting to be that time - Chili

    So it's getting cooler, closer to good weather for chili.

    So here's a recipe

    Pretty good Easy Chili

    2 1/2 lbs ground chuck
    1 large onion, chopped fine
    2 28 oz cans whole tomatoes
    1 6 oz can tomato paste
    1 green or other color bell pepper, diced (optional)
    8 oz mushrooms, sliced thinly (optional)
    salt
    chili powder to taste
    1 16 oz can dark red chile beans (optional)

    1 Brown meat & onion.
    2 Pour off grease.
    3 Add tomatoes (squished) & tomato paste.
    4 Add green pepper and mushrooms if desired.
    5 Add chile powder & salt to taste (takes quite a bit of chili powder).
    6 Cook covered for 1 hour.
    7 Add beans.
    8 Cook covered 1/2 hour.

    Cooking Tips

    If it's at all greasy, rinse with hot water when draining off fat.
    Freezes very well.

    28 oz canned whole tomatoes
    6 oz tomato paste
    1 Tbs salt
    1 tsp sugar
    1-2 Tbs yellow cornmeal

    1 Pat meat dry.
    2 Heat 3 Tbs. oil in dutch oven.
    3 Add meat all at once. Sear it, turning constantly, 3-4 minutes until lightly browned.
    4 Remove meat with slotted spoon and set aside.
    5 Add 2 Tbs. oil to pot. Sauté onion and garlic till onion is wilted, not brown.
    6 Stir in chili powder, oregano, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Stir well until onions are coated.
    7 Add broth, can of tomatoes with juice, tomato paste, salt, and sugar.
    8 Break up tomatoes with spoon.

    11 Uncover and simmer 40-50 minutes until meat is tender.
    12 Cool, cover, and refrigerate overnight.
    13 Bring slowly to a boil; simmer until heated throughout. If runny, do not cover; if thick, do.

    My chili recipe;

    Drive to Wendy's.
    Go slowly through the parking lot.
    Go around the building to the back at the drive through menu.
    Stop.
    Respond to the mystery person when they ask you "May I help you".
    Order 3 small chilis @ $1.59/each plus tax, (no cheese).
    Proceed to the first window and pay.
    Proceed to the second window and pick up your chili.
    Carefully drive to a parking spot.
    Remove one chili from the bag, open and set it on the dashboard.
    Let it breath properly.
    Remove 3 crackers packages from the bag.
    Pulverize them with your knuckles and gently empty them into the chili.
    Stir.
    Remove 3 paper napkins and one plastic spoon.
    Enjoy your 190 calories, 6G fat, and 14G of protein!

    p.s. crack your window open a little in case of gas.

    I laughed and made fun of my best buddy when he brought over a pot of chili for a football game one day that had mushrooms in it. I told him, NOBODY puts mushrooms in chili...........I'm so glad he's not a member this forum!!!! His chili was pretty good, but MUSHROOMS??

    All jokes aside, believe it or not, Wendys chili ain't that bad and is a big bang for your buck!! Ask long as you know how to order in any language other than English!

    Ah, a few mushrooms never hurt anyone. I never used to add them, but my husband likes them.

    Who is he? I'm gonna tell...

    Here is the one I make it's hot and sweet which is always a good thing,



    1 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
    3 14 ounce cans red kidney beans
    1 14 ounce can brown beans in tomato sauce or pork and beans
    3 14 ounce cans tomatoes; pureed in blender
    2 pounds minced beef or lean hamburger, browned
    1 teaspoon crushed garlic
    1 teaspoon cayenne powder
    2 teaspoons chili powder
    1 teaspoon crushed red pepper or local fresh hot peppers to taste
    2 heaping tablespoons peanut butter
    1 square unsweetened baking chocolate

    Brown meat. Combine spices with tomatoes in blender. Combine all ingredients except chocolate and peanut butter in pot. Heat until warm, then add chocolate and peanut butter, stirring until they are mixed in. Bake at 300F or on the stove at low heat for 6 to 12 hours, stirring regularly. You should not need to add additional water, as the tomatoes have plenty. Freezes well, tastes great.
