Ok, I admit, it wasn’t a big award, but I did win! My chili won “People’s Choice” Award at our homeschool co-op because it’s kid friendly. It’s not spicy and there’s nothing unidentifiable, like vegetables- blech!
(the recipe was x4 to fill up this turkey roaster, served about 50)
This is my adaptation of a recipe my Dad used to make when I was little.
- 1- 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
- minced garlic
- 40.5 oz can of kidney beans
- 29 oz can of tomato puree or sauce
- chili powder
- beef bouillon granules
- salt and pepper
I very rarely measure and improvise with my ingredients, so get creative with what you have!
Brown ground meat with garlic, drain fat. Add drained beans, tomatoes, about 2-3T chili powder and 1-2T beef bouillon. Add salt and pepper to taste. Heat thoroughly and simmer to desired consistency.
