The Easiest Chili Recipe Ever!

Are you ready for The Easiest Chili Recipe Ever! ?

We are pretty plain people. With our food, that is. My family typically does not like heavily seasoned foods, they do not like “chunks” in their food (big chunks of meat, chunks of tomato, etc., and don’t even try to get anyone to eat a mushroom!). We are, well, plain eaters. There are some advantages to having a family of plain eaters. For one thing, I do not have to make elaborate recipes and try to come up with new things constantly (although, something new once in a while would be nice). One of our favorite things to eat this time of year is chili (with no chunks of course). Since my family is pretty plain, I make what I think is the Easiest Chili Recipe Ever!

I began making chili from scratch about 12 years ago. It tastes so much better than the prepackaged chili seasoning and is much better for you too.

I want to share our chili recipe with you, but I warn you, it is plain, probably as plain as it can get!

List of Ingredients

3 lbs of meat

4 Large tomatoes

1 can of Rotel (or your own rotel type mix, I have not tried making my own yet)

Chili Powder (8-10 tbsp.)

Salt

2 cans of Kidney Beans (I know, I have plain eaters but my husband likes kidney beans in his chili???? And my kids do not even like beans in their chili, they pick them out).

A Few Cups of Water

You will need a blender, too.

Instructions

Brown your meat. While the meat is cooking, you can prepare the tomatoes.

Wash and cut up tomatoes. Put them in the blender. Dump the can of Rotel in the blender as well. I usually  add about a cup of water and puree for about a minute.

Cut up tomatoes, dump Rotel in, add water and puree.

Once the meat has been cooked, drain the meat. Put the meat in whatever you plan to cook chili in, a pot or crockpot, etc. Add chili powder. I usually use between 8-10 tbsp. I usually sprinkle with a little salt. (I do not salt heavily) I mix this up well before adding the pureed tomatoes.

After the meat and seasonings are mixed together well, pour in pureed tomatoes. Then add the two cans of beans. I usually then add a couple cups of water. The amount you use depends on how soupy you want it to be.

Let cook on low to medium heat for an hour or so. (We usually do not eat it the day I make it, It’s always better the next day after all the flavors have intermingled with one another.)

Let the chili cook on low - medium heat for about an hour, longer if you wish.
