Weekend Warming Chili

Loved waking up this morning with the air being a little cooler, fall is so close!

Hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weekend! A big thank you to the Patriots for that wonderful win yesterday. Speaking of the Patriots, I made a quick and simple chili yesterday for game day. The recipe is my mum's and she swears its the easiest chili recipe out there. The recipe can be doubled or tripled depending on the size you are serving. Perfect for a Sunday football party!

What you will need:

  • 1 lb ground beef or turkey
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can light red kidney beans
  • 1 can dark red kidney beans
  • 1 package of chili mix
  • Shredded cheese

Begin by browning the meat until it is cooked all the way through. This is probably the most time consuming part of the recipe but even then 1 lb of ground beef browns rather quickly.

The last step involves combining the chili mix, the two cans of beans and the diced tomatoes. Mix all of those ingredients together. Cover and let simmer on low for 2-4 hours. I feel the longer you let it sit the tastier it is.

After you let it simmer, top it off with some shredded cheese and enjoy! Ryan likes to dip bread into his, so a loaf of fresh Italian or French bread is always good to have on hand with chili.

Let me know if this chili is the big hit at your next football party!

Until next time.
