Rita's Easy Chili

RITA’S EASY CHILI

Use the recipe as a guide, OK? Chili is one of those meals that gives a lot of leeway, so you can add more of any ingredient.

Ingredients

1 pound ground chuck, sirloin or round

1 generous cup chopped onion

1 bell pepper, chopped

3 nice cloves, garlic, minced

3-4 tablespoons tomato paste

1 can, 14.5 oz., diced tomatoes

2 cans beans of your choice, one drained, one not (I used kidney and red beans)

14.5 oz. can beef broth + water to equal 2 cups liquid

2-3 tablespoons chili powder

Garnishes (optional but good):

Chopped jalapenos, sour cream, cheddar cheese, salsa, chopped tomatoes, sliced green onions, oyster crackers.

Instructions

Brown meat in a bit of oil with onion, pepper and garlic.

Add rest of ingredients and bring to a boil.

Lower to a simmer and cook, uncovered, about 30 minutes or so. This allows for some evaporation, making the chili thicker.

Adjust seasonings and serve with garnishes.

Serves 6 generously.

Tip:

When sautéing garlic, add it on top of the other vegetables. Garlic tends to burn easily.

Tomato paste can be frozen.
