Friday Football Feeding Frenzy

The cool weather came to visit and it got me in the mood for CHILI!  I cooked some in my Dutch Oven.  You can also use your Crock Pot!  But hey, I haven't had a lot of time lately to spend in my kitchen.  I am relying on my Quick and Easy recipes to keep my household happy and all the football fans too.

Here's what ya need...

Ingredients for chili1 pound Ground Chuck or chili meat
1 can of Chili Beans
1 can of Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 can Tomato Sauce
1 envelope of Texas One-Step Chili mix or (one of your choice)
Dash of Arizona Dreaming Seasoning
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups of water



For serving...
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Sour Cream
Saltine Crackers

Directions:
Brown meat in bottom of pot. 
Add the rest of the ingredients. 
Cook on high until a steady boil.
Chili in the Dutch Oven
Reduce heat and simmer for as long as you wish.
That's it! Delicious too! 
I have made this recipe and one with fresh onion, tomatoes, soaked kidney beans, Chili Powder and I promise this is just as good and saves a lot of time.





I also cook some white rice to serve with the chili.  I think this started when I was raising the children.  Having a large family, I stretched my meals as much as I could!
