Here is a really great and easy recipe that is a staple in our family. I prefer Chili with more beans than meat,but Grant isn’t a huge lover of Beans so I have to have a higher meat to bean ratio. 🙂 The things Grant actually cares about crack me up. Before I met Grant, I didn’t realize that people had texture issues with foods. Oh well, him being particular about foods just makes me laugh inside. I love how certain things makes everyone unique.
Chop your onions and Bell pepper. I normally use green bell pepper because they are cheaper, and they Â make the dish more colorful.
Â Cook your ground beef, some butter and garlic.
Â Add in your chopped ingredients.
Â Cook until the onions are silvery and the meat is completely cooked.
Â Add all of the canned ingredients. Cook until completely heated, add Chili powder, salt, & Pepper and Serve.
Since you cannot half a recipes that have a lot of canned items in them, I will make the full amount and then freeze half right away in a tupperware. Whenever you don’t want to cook or are sick, let this thaw and the reheat and an amazing meal is waiting for you!
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 Clove ofÂ Garlic at least

1 Can of Black Beans
1 tsp. Chili Powder

Dash of Pepper to taste
2 Cans peeled/diced petiteÂ Tomatoes
