I plan the menus for the house monthly - so it was a bit serendipitous that chili was on the menu for that day. I put it all in a crock pot early in the day and we enjoyed the nice hearty warm meal for dinner. I even got a "We love your chili!" comment - which, of course, makes this cooks heart smile.
My super-simple chili recipe (which is probably why they like it as they're not big on fancy stuff)
2 lbs ground beef, browned
1 onion, chopped
2 cans tomato sauce
2 cans chili beans in mild sauce
chili powder to taste
I cooked it on the crock pot on low for about five hours.
Add-ons of choice: mustard, cheese, onions, crumbled saltines, jalapenos, hot sauce
What's your favorite cold-weather comfort food? As I'm fairly certain I'm in for some more snowy days.
