DMan’s simple easy chili is so simple and easy, you’ll wonder why you never had the courage to try it yourself.  Here’s the ingredients and a link to the video is included so watch it first then gather what you’ll need and make your own simple easy chili your family and friends will love.  Sure to be a hit.

What you’ll need:

A slow cooker or a regular old pot for the stove top and a stove

Some bowls for your cut up veggies and meat

A can opener for your cans

Some sharp kitchen knives

A cutting board so your counter won’t look like a war zone

Some spoons to turn your ingredients over as you are cooking

Food ingredients:

*Read your labels and try to choose sodium reduced tomato sauce.  Try for 15% or less for your daily requirement per the food guide.

2 lbs top sirloin or any available meet including ground beef, pork, chicken or turkey

3 lge cans of Heinz Hot and Spicey Chili Tomato Sauce or similar product available in your country

3 packages of Hot House Chili powder mix or similar available product in your country

1 handful of chili powder to sprinkle on meat or to taste

1 red or white onion, chopped

2 bell peppers or/and chili peppers, chopped and seeded

5 celery sticks, chopped

Optional:

1 can kidney beans if you prefer but this is not necessary and avoiding them means less stinky stuff later

How to make:

  • Cut meat into manageable bite size squares, trimming any excess fat.  If using ground meat you may omit this part of the recipe.
  • Chop up your vegetables anyway you want to.  *Tip: To make chopping an onion easier and to avoid crying, put under cold water briefly after cutting off the top.  Set your vegetables aside in the refrigerator.
  • Turn your stove element on medium heat.  Put your cut or ground meat into a skillet or frying pan and add the onions and chili powder.  Stir the ingredients until they are finally mixed.  Stir the ingredients on the medium heat until the meat is completely browned but not black.  The onions should be see through or translucent at this time.  Once browned, turn off your stove and drain the fat from your meat mixture.
  • Pour your meat mixture into your crock pot or pot on your stove.  All extra ingredients are added at this time except celery.  Add chopped vegetables, tomato sauce and chili powder mixes.
  • If using a crock pot, set it to high for 3 hours and turn to low for another hour.   Stirring occasionally making sure to stir from the bottom.  Add celery one half hour after you’ve turned it to low and leave on low for another half hour until finished.
  • If using a stove top, bring all ingredients to a boil and then reduce to low heat stirring regularly every 15-20 minutes making sure to stir from the bottom.  Add celery 3.5 hours after simmering or a half hour before it’s finished cooking.
  • If using ground meat in place of meat chunks, cut the time by two hours in the crock pot and the stove top times but still add the celery one half hour before they are finished.
