Big P's Classic Chili

Recipe by  

"My family loves this recipe. Kid-friendly, great for sleepover nights. The key is to chop all veggies big so the flavors get incorporated but they're able to be picked out by the picky eater. Pair with honey cornbread and call 'come and get it!'"

Directions

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a Dutch oven or large soup pot over medium heat; cook and stir onion, celery, and garlic in the hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir ground beef into onion mixture; cook and stir until ground beef is browned and crumbly, 5 to 10 minutes. Drain grease.
  2. Stir tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, salt, and pepper into ground beef mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend, about 1 1/2 hours. Add kidney beans; simmer for 10 more minutes.

This was very good and simple, resulting in a mild chili that everyone will like. I made it exactly as stated, but as usual for us, I ended up adding a little molasses to add a little sweetness.

Big P's Classic Chili Haiku: "It's been a long time, since a chili's been 5 stars, but I loved this lots!" I make a different chili recipe about once a week, and rarely do I go back and make a recipe a 2nd time around, or at least making it the same way again. THIS chili might change that (thanks Big P!) as I really liked it that much that I'll probably make it again. It was easy to put together, I actually liked the big hunks of red onion and celery (although I'd consider adding bell pepper) and all the ingredients were easy to come by, and all came together for a fantastic, no-fussiness chili.
