How to Make Easy Chili

On a cold night, a pot of chili is the perfect dish for dinner! It takes less than twenty minutes to prepare and provides leftovers for our household. I have a favorite pot that is perfect for a batch of chili. I always spray the bottom of the pan with Pam to keep the food from sticking while cooking. Take two pounds of lean ground beef and brown thoroughly. Add a chopped onion as the meat begins to brown. The onion can cook with the meat. When the meat has browned, drain the meat mixture of any grease that has accumulated. Add a large can of condensed tomato soup. Stir. Add one small can of chili, without beans, for flavor. In addition, add a packet of chili spices to complete your dish. Stir and simmer for thirty minutes to an hour! Serve.

For variations to my chili, I sometimes add one or two cans of chili beans to the pan after browning the meat. If you have a large crowd, this can help you feed more people. We usually serve Tortilla Chips for dipping. Sprinkle some cheese on top of your chili bowl.Tonight we served spinach as a side dish. I poured my chili over my spinach. Sometimes we serve a side salad with the chili. It is not unusual for me to pour my chili over my salad or put the salad on the chili. Variations keep things interesting! Enjoy your chili!

    I could not agree more hublim! We hit 23 degrees here in Texas last night, headed for the teens. Cold indeed for this area. I think there is some leftover chili in the refrigerator for tonight.

    I want chilli now. It's a great easy dish, as you say for those cold nights. We're getting a lot of them here just now. It's reported to have hit -22°C in Scotland last night.

    Chilli is great when it's Chilly

    We had this recipe for dinner tonight. I served a tossed salad. We lined our plate with tortilla chips, spooned salad on the chips and then poured chili over it all! Yum!
