I thought I'd share a recipe that my husband made the other night. If you like homemade chili, then you'll really love this! Some women are married to men who are great carpenters or busy executives, I'm married to a firefighter who loves to cook! Lucky me! Ha! So, follow along and try this at home. It's quite delicious.
Here are the ingredients you will need.
There is one item missing from the pic above. It is this.
This ingredient (beer) is optional.
Chop up all your veggies (peppers, onion and garlic).
Then add to your pan with a little olive oil to saute them.
Add ground beef.
Brown the ground beef.
Pour meat mixture back in the pot to continue cooking and add tomato sauce and diced tomatoes.
Now you can pour in the beer if you're using it. My husband says it adds flavor. Hmmmm....... (Don't worry the alcohol cooks out of it.)
Now add your seasonings (chili powder, cumin, red pepper, salt and black pepper).
Stir and simmer.
After it is heated through, you can add the beans.
Stir well and continue heating until ready to serve.
Now it's ready to eat!
We serve it with shredded cheese and sour cream on top. Yum!
This is my husbands creation. He did not copy this recipe from someone else. Some of the measurements are not exact because he is known to cook "to taste". I told him that in order to share this recipe I needed some measurements. Ha! So, this is it. Hope you'll give it a try (with or without the beer).
2 lbs lean ground beef
whole bell pepper, diced
whole pablano pepper, diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cans chili beans (undrained)
1 can tomato sauce
1 can diced tomatoes
~ 3 Tbsp chili powder
~ 1 tsp cumin
~ 1/2 tsp red pepper
~ 1/2 tsp salt
~ 1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 bottle of beer
olive oil (just enough to coat bottom of pan)
Follow cooking instructions above.
Thanks for stopping by!
