New Recipe

Hey all, I just thought I'd share this yummy Chili recipe that I discovered. It makes four 1cup servings - if you need more I'm sure you can double it.

Beef and Bean Chili

1 lb Ground Beef (or any meet you choose)
1 large Onion (Chopped)
6 Cloves of Garlic (I add a small palm full of freeze dried garlic)
1 Tbsp of Chili Powder
2 tsp Ground Cumin
1/8 tsp (or less) Cayenne Pepper
1 large jar of Salsa (I use mild)
1/4 c Water
1 can Beans rinsed (Pinto or Kidney - I'm sure black would be good too)

Cook Beef, and Onion in large saucepan ober medium heat, crumbling the meat with a wooden spoon, until meat is browned 8-10 minutes.
Add garlic, chili powder, cumin and cayenne pepper; cook until fragrant, about 20 seconds, making sure the meat is coated.
Stir in Salsa and Water; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, stiring occasionally.
Stir in Bean and cook until heated through, about 1 minute.
Makes 4 servings.



This is the origional recipe. It was too spicy for us, but if you like spicy here it is ....

1 lb Beef
1 Large Red Bell Pepper Chopped
1 Large Onion Chopped
6 cloves Garlic
1Tbsp Chili Powder
2 tsp Ground Cumin
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 large jar Green Salsa
1/4 c Water
1 can Pinto or Kidney Beans (rinsed)

add the bell pepper in at the beginning with the onion and beef and then cook as above.
