Smoked Chipotle Chili5:06 PM
It is so cold here. Not New York or Chicago kind of cold but for us Southerners, it is freezing. 34 degrees and it felt like a chili kinda dinner night. This recipe is super easy, as it calls for seasoning packets and canned beans. Usually, I have dried beans on hand, but when you are in a hurry, canned and packets are great.
This surely hit the spot for us and the chipotles added a nice flavor. A quick and super warm dinner. Yes.
You will need:
2 lbs ground beef
3 chili seasoning packets
3 cans of diced tomatoes and chiles
3 cans of crushed tomatoes
1 can chipotles (chopped)
2 cans of black beans
2 cans of red kidney beans
Garnish: Sour cream, cheese, fresh jalapenos, cilantro
Brown your ground beef with one packet of the chili seasoning. Once cooked, drain the grease and add in another packet of seasoning. Add in your tomatoes and stir. Transfer to a large pot on meduim heat. Add in your beans. When it begins to bubble, lower your heat to low and continue to cook for an hour or more.
This makes a large pot. You can cut in half for a smaller crowd. This feeds 6 people.
