Basic Chili

This is, by far, HP’s most favorite meal I’ve made so far. It’s also the cheapest and probably the easiest. Hooray!

Basic Chili

1.25 lbs 96% lean ground beef
2 – 14oz cans kidney beans, drained
1 – 28oz can crushed tomatoes
1 tsp minced garlic
.25 cup finely chopped onion
salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes
Franks Red Hot

Saute onion and garlic in a pan sprayed with cooking spray. Add beef and season with salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes. Break up the meat with spoon or fork and brown (you shouldn’t need to drain if you use 96% lean beef, but if you feel the need or you used higher fat content meat, go ahead and drain here.) Add the tomatoes and beans and season with salt, pepper, cumin, paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes. Bring to a boil, then cover and turn heat all the way down. Simmer on lowest setting for a couple of hours.

Top with Frank’s Red Hot just before serving. Tastes even better the second day!
