Chili for Everyone
Hearty, Rich, and Meaty...
Here's a popular, simple recipe for chili
The secret ingredient..... coffee!
I've been making this simple chili for years. It's one that everybody likes. It's popular with kids, because it's not too spicy, and adults can add hot sauce or other mix-ins later to suit their taste.
It's especially good a day or two after you make it, and it freezes well.
Liz's best chili ever
1 lb ground beef
2 15 1/2oz cans seasoned chili beans
1 14oz can canned tomatoes, your choice (do not drain)
2 c old strong coffee
2 cloves minced garlic
1 small onion, chopped
1 pkg chili seasoning (I use William's, it's unsalted)
1 Tbsp cumin
salt to taste
Brown ground beef, set aside, saving small amt grease.
Sautee garlic and onion in saved grease.
In crock pot or large cooking pot, add all ingredients and mix well.
Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally at least two hours on stove top or 4 hours in crock pot.
I leave mine in the crock pot all day.
Add water or more coffee to desired consistency.
If you don't use a a slow cooker...
Host a chili party
Double, triple, quadruple the recipe, and host a party (can you say Football?)
Set out a variety of mix-ins and toppers buffet-style.
Children especially enjoy adding their own "extras"
Mix-ins and toppers for your chili:
Corn chips (like Fritos)
chopped green pepper
a variety of hot sauces
cheese crackers (like Cheez-Its)
Also try serving your chili over baked potato, rice, or noodles.
