Good Old Bowl of Chili
I decided to make a pot of Chili today. It's non-traditional but very easy to make. I don't have a specific measurement simply because I hate to take out the spoon to measure everything. I used pork slices instead of ground pork/beef. Again too lazy to ground the pork with my cleaver. Why Chili? Because it's freezing cold over here and I'm dreaming of a bowl of hot Chili!
First, I browned the pork in extra virgin olive oil. Dish out and set aside. Then, I add in one chopped yellow onion and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. Brown those in the E.V. olive oil, when brown, I pour in 28oz. of whole tomatoes with juice (break it out) and 15oz. of red beans in Chili, add in the pork slices and some water. The seasonings I used were garlic powder, onion powder, cumin powder, paprika powder, cayenne powder, oregano, parsley, a little cane sugar, salt & pepper to taste. Covered and let it simmer at low heat for 2 hours. Serve with shredded cheese and rice on the side.
Note: Add 2 cans of red beans in Chili or any beans you fancy if you like lots of beans.
