Chili Recipe

since i got married, i have been trying really hard to cook every night...i love trying new recipes...a few weeks ago i made some chili...i didn't use a recipe but i want to share how i made was a total hit here...when they like something, i try to repeat it...we are having it again tonight but this time i am making a double batch...i will freeze whats left over for quick night dinners later...this is just a very basic recipe...

ashleys chili
1 pound ground beef
1 can rotel tomatoes 
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 diced onion
1 can chili beans with sauce
chili powder
garlic powder
salt and pepper

brown ground beef and drain....chop onion...i don't cook my onion with the beef because i don't like to lose the flavor when draining the grease off...i puree all of my tomatoes...we don't like chunkys here....i have made it without pureeing before but the kids were not that fond of it....chop to your liking...i don't have specifics on the spices...since i can't eat very spicy, i shake out some in my palm to start with..i would guess about 1 teaspoon for the chili powder, garlic powder, and cumin....after the chili cooks for a bit i go back and add more if needed...let it simmer for about 1 hour....

today i am using ground turkey...i also am using my crockpot...i estimate it to take about 5 hours on low to cook to my liking...we love having hot dogs with the chili...tator tots covered with chili and cheese are pretty yummy too!!

Peace, Love, & Joy
