I absolutely LOVE chili–especially when it is as cold as it is today (9 degrees–brrr)!
Anyway, this recipe for my chili was given to me many years ago when I worked at a bank here in my hometown. I wanted to make a delicious and hearty chili (because my man likes a meaty meal–and chili is no different), so the lady that I was working with gave me her recipe and it has been a favorite of ours ever since.
To make this chili, you need two special ingredients:
(I have tried other tomatoes seasoned for chili and they do not compare! Definitely get this one)
The other special ingredient is a Field Brand Chili log that can be found in the meat department (either by the sandwich meats or in the meat counter)
Here is the complete recipe! Later this week, I will share a couple more recipes with you that you can make to use leftover chili.
Game Day Chili
1 can of Hunts Chili Ready Diced Tomatoes
2 cans of light red kidney beans
1 pound of hamburger meat
1 46 ounce can of tomato juice
1 Field brand chili log
Brown ground beef and season with salt and pepper.
Prepare chili log as directed on package in a large chili pot.
Add tomato juice and Hunts tomatoes to pan.
Open the beans and run through the water to rinse bean juice off. Place in the pan with the juice. Add ground beef last.
Reduce heat and allow chili to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Serve with shredded cheese and crackers.
If you want to make clean up a mess, serve your chili inside these beauties:
It’s called a Frito Pie! I am SO doing this next time I make chili. Less mess, no dishes to wash and crunchy Frito goodness!
What is your favorite way to serve chili?
