I had to make this Fully Loaded Chili. I know I made chili last Saturday night, but it was a White Bean Chicken Chili. The one tonight was more traditional. It used a lot of the beans I stocked up on last week at Publix. Winn Dixie had ground beef this week for $1.99 lb. This also gives you something for your Tostitos that I know most of us have in the pantry. Crush some on top with the cheese and sour cream. Yummy. This chili is super simple and full of flavor. Easy enough for a busy weeknight. I didn't get it going until 7:00. Once you get it all together, it cooks in 30 minutes. So, make good use of that 30 minutes. I got my kitchen cleaned!
Fully Loaded Chili Recipe:
Fully Loaded Chili Ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped (prices were too high for this today- omitted)
1-3/4 cup water
2 8-oz cans tomato sauce
1 can kidney beans (I used Bush's Chili Beans, undrained)
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 chili seasoning packet
How To Make Fully Loaded Chili:
In a large pot over medium heat, cook the beef, onion and pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain (This is when a baster works best for removing all of the fat).
Stir in the water, tomato sauce, beans, and seasonings (you can add extra salt and pepper later if needed). Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes. Garnish with cheese, sour cream and crushed Tostitos.
