Easy Chili

Category Soups

This recipe I came up with out of necessity one day and it has been a hit ever since. I use ground turkey, but it tastes just as good with ground beef.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. ground turkey (or beef)
  • 1- 40 1/2 oz. can red kidney beans
  • 1- 26 1/2 oz. can Hunt's traditional spaghetti sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Ground chili powder (adjust to taste)
  • 1 tsp. Ground cumin (adjust to taste)
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup dried chopped onions (or you can use 1 cup fresh onions)

Directions

In large dutch oven over medium heat add 4 cups water, while this is heating add chili powder, onions, brown sugar and cumin. When water is hot, add ground meat. Breaking it up into small pieces as you add. I use a potato masher after I add the meat to the hot water and it separates it really well. After separating meat well, add kidney beans and spaghetti sauce. Bring to a slow boil, stirring frequently, then reduce heat and slowly simmer for at least an hour, again stirring occasionally.

Ad

This can also easily be prepared in a crock pot. I mix all the ingredients except start with hot water. Cover and cook on low overnight or during the day while you are at work or out shopping.

This is delicious served in a bowl with grated cheese on top or over cooked spaghetti with cheese sprinkled on top and a nice side of garlic toast.

Enjoy!

(I have been using turkey instead of ground beef for over a year now and my husband still doesn't know!)
