Chili is one of those foods that can be made so many different ways, but still taste yummy.
My dad used to experiment with making chili, and I have seen him make it with everything from beer, to peppers so hot you couldn't even eat the chili.
I usually just stick to a normal recipe and take it to work so that I can cook it all day in my crock pot on low.
My recipe this time was...
2 lbs hamburger meat browned and drained
1 can dark red kidney beans, drained
1 can chili beans, undrained
1 can petite diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
then depending on how spicy you like it, either one or 2 packages of chili mix. I used one Chili-o mix and one Williams mix this time, because we like it pretty spicy.
I stirred the 2 packages of chili mix into the beef, then added everything into the crock pot. It cooked on low for about 8-9 hours.
I added mine to the top of a big pile of spaghetti squash and topped it with sharp white cheddar. I may have weird taste, but to me, it was delicious! And only had about 350 calories for the whole plate. This is 1/2 half of a large squash. If you haven't tried spaghetti squash, you don't know what you are missing.
It can be topped with so many things. :)
Love what you eat and eat what you love! :)
