2 (16 ounce) cans
kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 (14.5 ounce) cans
diced tomatoes, undrained
green bell peppers, chopped, divided
red bell pepper, chopped, divided
ground black pepper
shredded Cheddar cheese for garnish
This is just like the chili I make only I use canned pinto beans (Bush's) and also add cumin and cayenne pepper. The ground beef is chuck which produces more grease (drained in a colander)but also much more flavor. I use a cast iron dutch oven and the "fond" made by the browned ground chuck is terrific, once the liquid goes in! Maybe Jay is a bit too finicky about his chili, jrgh17. This is good stuff.
There is some awesome recipes on here but this is not one of them. I did not care for this.
I agree with Jay. This was not good at all (sorry!). For one, this needs WAY more liquid. The juice from two cans of diced tomatoes is not nearly enough! I was quite disappointed that there was nothing to dip my bread bowl top into. :( Flavor-wise, this was decent but my hubs and I agree that we've had much better. Thanks anyways, jrgh17.
This is just like a recipe that came with a list of recipes from my slow cooker! You do need to modify though, I use 2 cans of the 28 oz Tomatoes and 3 Tbsp of the Chili Powder. I add 1 - 2 Tsp Cumin, a Tbsp of pickle juice, and a pickle. You really can go as wild or as tame as your want adding additional flavors spices etc. Great base chili recipe and it is what I have always use!
Very easy and very tasty. The family really enjoyed this.
Made this chili recipe and found it very tasty. The 2 pounds of ground beef was perfect for the amount of beans and the peppers made it perfect. I did top it with sour cream and sharp cheddar...yummy. Thanks for sharing.
This is exactly how my dad taught me 45 yrs ago, minus the peppers. I may try peppers next time.
