So tonight is Kellie's night. She has a delicious smelling Chili simmering away on the stove while she plays in the snow outside. That's right, my girl is a multi-tasker all the way!
This is an adaptation of the "Phone Lady's" Chili but here we go:
1 lb. ground beef or chuck
2-3 carrots peeled, and chopped
2 cups cut up celery
1/2 - 1 onion cut up
1 cup green pepper cut up
In a large stock pot, brown off the ground meat, then add the remaining ingredients to saute' vegetables.
2 large cans of V-8 Juice (tried to save money here by using generic brand tomato juice, it was okay but was certainly missing something in taste we were used to with the V-8)
2 cans of chili beans, do not drain
1 large can of pork and beans, do not drain
Stir together and simmer for a couple hours. Sometimes I'll throw it in the crock pot and let it go all day. But tonight Kellie put it together around 3:30 and it'll simmer until 5 or so. Perfect.
She also made Sweet Cornbread too. Can't wait for supper. My tummy's growling! grrrrrr!
Don't forget the sour cream and cheese!
Sweet Cornbread recipe coming soon!
Tastes just like the Jiffy Box cornbread but homemade!
