Awaking to brisk fall air this morning…..I immediately felt the urge to whip up a big pot of chili! I like to make a simple pot of chili with very little spice so my kids just might eat it, it’s simple to make and ready in about 30 minutes.
Step 1. Turn a pot on to medium heat, add a small amount of olive or coconut oil.
Step 2. Chop up a large onion and a large bell pepper, and throw it in the pot with a pound of ground meat (turkey, beef, pork, venison, whatever you got). Let simmer for about 5 minutes. Drain excess fat, if necessary.
Step 3. Add in a can of diced tomatoes, a can of tomato sauce, and two cans of beans (kidney, pinto, black, canellini, garbanzo, any kind is fine). Cover, and let simmer for 20 minutes.
Step 4. Stir in salt, pepper and desired spice. I use a small amount of chili powder. You can add cayenne, hot sauce, red pepper flakes, it really depends who you are cooking for. Stir it up, and dish it out, and enjoy!
