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.

Melissa, I love fall weather because it just makes soup taste better. We just came through a couple days of blustery fall weather. It just doesn't get any better to come in out of the rainy windy chilly fall weather and be able to sit down to steaming bowl of soup. I do love a good bowl of chili. I see you like to compliment the chili with a bit of crusty bread as well. I do that too. It looks so easy even a bachelor can make it. :0) Have a great chili day.
