Chili Cook-Off

Strictly speaking, this is not a Cook-Off (competition), but I liked the title! I thought that I would share this recipe with you for a tasty weekday chili that is quick to prepare and delicious to eat. Start with about 1 lb of ground beef/mince and brown it in a pan with 2 tablespoons of chili powder; 1 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of dried thyme. (Adjust seasonings to your taste).

Next, add two peppers chopped and cored. I like to use a red and a yellow because I like the colours!

Add to this a large can of chopped plum tomatoes; partially cover the pan and turn down the heat to low. Cook until the peppers are tender.

Finally, add a can of red kidney beans to the pan (rinse them first to remove that awful 'glupy' liquid). Continue to cook until the kidney beans have warmed through.

And there you have it ~ one pan of chili that has taken minutes to prepare from scratch and is a tasty meal for a winter's night. Bon Appetit!
