A camping recipe from David. This is almost how my mom made chili when I was growing up. The only difference with this recipe is that I can no longer get Frank's Chili Powder, which used cinnamon, so I add some to the pot along with my chili powder. This recipe can be ready to eat in an hour, but its better if you can let it simmer for a couple.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes
- 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 15-ounce can tomato sauce
- 1 15-ounce can kidney beans
- 1 medium onion chopped
- 1 green pepper chopped
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups water
Brown the ground beef in a Dutch oven or large pot, and then set aside to drain grease. Brown the chopped onion and green pepper next. Combine all ingredients (except the beans) and bring to a simmer. Add the kidney beans and continue simmering for one hour, stirring occasionally. Serve hot with crackers and grated cheese.
Variation: 10 minutes before serving, add an ounce of dark chocolate to the pot and stir well.
