This recipe says "comfort food" to me. Flavorful chili served over rice and topped with cheddar cheese....and maybe a dollop of sour cream! This is my mom's tried-and-true recipe (which I always double). Also excellent served with cornbread or tortilla chips.
*Printable Recipe*My Momma's Chili
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (28 oz) can whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped (you can also use diced tomatoes...they just have a little less juice typically)
1 (16 oz) can light red kidney beans, undrained
1 1/2 TBSP chili powder (This adds flavor, but this chili is not on the spicy end. Add more chili powder if you like it hot!)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
Rice and cheddar cheese to go along
Brown ground beef with onion and pepper. Drain excess grease. Add other ingredients. Cover and simmer on low heat. Serve with whatever you prefer: rice and cheese, sour cream, corn bread, etc. :)
Last week I doubled the recipe and it fed 4 adults for dinner, with leftovers to spare for at least 8+ lunches during the week.
