With snow falling outside, I don’t have a choice but to make chili for dinner. This is not very spicy, so our kiddos enjoy it too. I always serve chili with cheddar cheese on top and Fritos Scoops on the side. Tonight I made Irish Soda Bread (see separate post) to go with it.
I received this recipe from a co-worker years ago- I needed to make some modifications to make it gluten-free but we think it tastes the same. She always cooked it in the crockpot, just browning the beef before combining all the ingredients. Cook on low for 8 hours.
Kid Friendly Chili
1 lb ground beef, browned with 1 Tbsp dried, minced onion
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can Rotel
1 packet taco seasoning or 3 Tbsp Kirkland Taco Seasoning
1 tsp season salt
1 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp thyme
Brown the beef with onions. Add all remaining ingredients and stir. Bring to boil then turn to low and cook for about an hour with a lid on. Stir occasionally. Serve with grated cheddar cheese on top and Fritos Scoops on the side.
