Easy Chili


Confession: I love Wendys Chili :-) I know probably not the healthiest thing for me but I love it.  To be truthful I just love chili period. However I'm very picky on what kind of chili I eat. It needs to be the standard tomato one. I don't care for white chilis. Give me regular :-) That being said I passed on my love of chili to my 6 year old daughter.  She loves it and can taste it and tell me how much more cumin and chili powder it needs.  So I created this chili :-) Its good...you can add more spice to it if you wish but I just have a bit of heat so that my 6 year old can handle it.  I also make this in the crock pot :-) 

Chili
2-3 Lbs of Ground Beef
2 C Water
1 Can of Small Red Beans
32 oz Tomato Sauce
4 T Chili Powder
4 tsp Cumin
1 Tsp Salt
1/2 Tsp Pepper

In a skillet brown your hamburger and chop it into pea size pieces.  Drain out the oil. In a large sauce pan put in your tomato sauce, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, red beans(Drained), and 2 cups of water. Stir till combined. Add your ground beef. Heat till its hot. Serve with cheddar cheese and or tortilla strips.

Slow Cooker:
Add all ingredients to your slow cooker and heat on low for 6 hours or on high for 3.

Good Evening Everyone,
When I first moved to New England everyone was talking about American Chop Suey. I was like what in the world is that?! Then they explained and I said Ohhhh goulash! LOL But here in New England they call it American Chop Suey! So here is my recipe. This is a quick easy recipe for the busy night. 

American Chop Suey

Brown your hamburger, drain the grease. Next add your spaghetti sauce to it. Mix it up and set it aside. Boil your noodles. Strain them and put them back in the sauce pan. Add your meat sauce mixture and combine. 
I add grated parm and garlic sea salt to this as well. you can do it to taste.
