1 lb ground meat (hamburger, pork, turkey) I used ground pork
Chopped green pepper (I only measure things that are easily measured. For chopped veggies, I just put in what I think looks or sounds good.)
1-2 cloves garlic (again, for your taste)
1 can chilli ready tomatoes (if by chance I can't get chilli ready tomatoes, I just increase the chilli powder to 3 tablespoons)
1 can dark red kidney beans, drained
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
2 tablespoons of chilli powder (Yes, I used tablespoons. The original recipe says teaspoons, but somewhere along the way, I have translated that to tablespoons that that is what I used today. Again, this can be adjusted for your spice preference.)
Brown the meat with garlic and green pepper. When the meat is no longer pink, add the rest of the ingredients in the appropriate pot for cooking.
Stove TopOn the stove top, heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
MicrowaveHeat on high 5-6 minutes in a microwave safe dish.
CrockpotHeat on low for 1-2 hours or high for 1 hour or until heated through.
ToppingsWe can't eat chilli without plenty of toppings. Here are our favorites and staples:
- Oyster crackers
- Chopped onion (because we top the chilli with onion, I don't cook any with the meat)
- Sour cream
