I love to cook! I especially like yummy recipes that are made with real, whole foods that don't take a lot of time.
The following is a easy recipe for chili. It's low fat, quick and tasty for the whole family.
We like to serve it topped with fresh green onions, grated cheese, sour cream (full fat doesn't have the junk in it like the low/no fat version) and a few Fritos for crunch.
Have you ever looked at the ingredients on a bag of Fritos? Nothing but corn, oil, salt and NO preservatives!
Brown together & season with salt, pepper & garlic salt
1 lb ground beef (I like the 7%fat kind. It's more expensive, but you aren't paying for (or eating) a lot of fat.
1 lg. onion, chopped
8 cloves garlic
2-3 jalapeno, chopped
2 Tbs. dried basil
2 cans kidney beans (drained)
1 15oz can tomato puree
1 14oz can "petite cut" diced tomatoes (zesty)
1 6oz can tomato paste
1 oz. Chili Powder (abt.1/3 bottle of a 2.5oz container)
2 Tbs. sugar
Cook on stove top covered for 1-2 hours on low.
