It was time to make a pot of chili to keep us warm during these cold Florida evenings.
My chili is nothing special or imaginative, but we like it so I will share it here:
My favorite chili
One pound very lean ground beef (or mix of turkey & beef) browned
Chopped onion – as much as desired, we like lots and lots
Chopped celery – usually a couple of stalks
One can chili beans or red chili beans
One package of chili seasonings -choose your own level of heat
One can of stewed tomatoes or chili ready tomatoes
One can of tomato soup (undiluted)
46 oz of tomato juice
Brown hamburger with onion and celery – mix in seasoning.
Add can of beans and can of tomatoes – mix in well.
Add can of tomato soup (undiluted) to thick the mixture
Add 46 ounces of tomato juice
Bring to boil and simmer slowly to blend flavors.
Long Live the Queen of Hot Stuff
