We LOVE Chili in our house!! I’ve made it with both name brands and store brands and it tastes pretty much the same. I have a few different ways I make chili (different ingredients) but this time I used:
3-5 lbs ground chuck, depends on if you like lots of meat or not…we do
(forgot to add it for the picture)
2 Seasoned Tomato Sauce For Chili
2 dark red kidney beans
2 light red kidney beans
2 chili beans
2 tomato paste
2 chopped chilies
1 mushroom pieces and stems
3 stewed tomatoes
3 envelopes chili seasoning
Brown ground chuck in large pot . Drain.
Add back into the pot
Add remaining ingredients except cheese and stir
Simmer for 60 min. or until ready to eat.
(I also make this in the crock pot on low for 6-8 hours)
When it’s almost time to eat, add pieces of cheese, stir until melted
(forgot to take a photo)
We add more cheese to our bowls too, but of course I forgot to take a photo.
FYI: Since I was a kid, I’ve always eaten a peanut butter sandwich with my chili.
