Chili

Below is one of my many recipes for chili. This one is not spicy, although it does include adding a few squirts of sriracha sauce. The sauce is used for flavor not spiciness.

Ingredients
– 2 lbs ground beef
– 2 bags of frozen black beans (equivalent to 2 cans)
– 1 large onion
– 1 large green pepper
– 3 cans of diced tomatoes
– 2 cans of tomato sauce
– couple squirts of sriracha sauce
– chili powder

Directions

1. Brown the ground beef in the pot you want to make the chili in on medium-high heat. While the meat is browning chop up the onion and green peppers. I chop my onion and peppers into bigger pieces so I have a good size that I get in my chili. You can chop them as big or small as you would like.

2. Throw the onion and green pepper in once you are done chopping it up. Let the onion and pepper get tender and add three palms full of chili powder.

3. While letting the chili powder cook into the meat and vegetable mixture get your beans ready to add. Since I used the bag I didn’t have to rinse my beans. If you are using a can or dry beans, I suggest rinsing the beans because it can change the flavor and also putting the dry beans in a hot bath to mush them a bit. Once you are ready you can add the beans.

4. Let the beans warm up a few minutes while you open up all the cans of diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Once they are open, add them to the chili and turn the heat to high. Keep the heat high until it starts to boil. Once it boils, turn the heat to low.

5. Stir the chili every so often and leave on low heat for an hour. Once the hour is up, turn off the heat and add a few squirts of sriracha sauce. Stir up the chili good and check if you like the taste. You may need more chili powder or sriracha. It is up to you to decide the final flavor!

6. Once you are finished, serve and enjoy!
