Chili in a Hurry

As the weather cools down, we love to have chili for dinner.  We love all varieties but this one, though simple and easy, always seems to taste the best.

A delicious bowl of chili 


1 pound ground beef

1 medium onion- diced

1 tbsp cumin

1 tbsp chili powder

3 cloves garlic-minced

2 16 oz. cans white kidney beans

1 16 oz. can red kidney beans

1 16 oz. can tomato sauce

1 16 oz. can diced tomatoes

1 cup chicken stock

1 cup beef stock

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil

shredded cheddar cheese for topping


Brown the beef, onions and garlic together in a bit of olive oil with salt and pepper, cumin and the chili powder.

If necessary pour off the fat, then add the remainder of the ingredients and simmer on low heat for approximately 30 minutes.

Serve topped with shredded cheddar cheese.
