I love my chili recipe. It is easy, it can last a few meals, and it is healthy. I leave my boyfriend with this as leftovers almost every time I leave his home after the week. It really is delicious. I use a little bit of hamburger meat for flavor but it could easily be a vegetarian recipe.
1 can of each of the following
(I usually use all Bush's Beans)
(Tomato paste if you need to thicken your chili)
1/3-1/2 pound of Hamburger Meat
1 Red Pepper
I poor all 5 cans of chili into a large pot and let them simmer on low while I'm cooking everything else. I also chop up the stewed tomatoes into smaller pieces. Also, poor out some of the juice in the kidney bean and refried bean cans to make the chili less runny.
I then cook the hamburger in a separate pan adding a little chili powder. Once it is cooked I add it to the pot of chili simmering.
I then dice up half of an onion and a small red pepper. I then grill them with olive oil in the same pan as I cooked the meat in; adding, chili powder, pepper, and garlic salt. After grilling it for a few minutes I add that to the entire pot. Add more chili powder and garlic salt to taste. I then add a lot of tabasco for a little kick.
Lastly let it simmer for a little longer to allow it to thicken up a little.
This amount allows for about 4-5 bowls. It is perfect for the two of us to have leftovers. I double the recipe or just add a few extra cans of beans if others are joining us.
