I found this recipe in the 2004 TOH's "The Best of Country Cooking. It was submitted by Rose Purrington of Minnesota. I needed a calorie count for this. Feel free to add more cheese if desired. Submitted by me to "ZAAR" on July 16th 2206.
I found this in an old cookbook, made some changes, and it's now the recipe I turn to when I feel like eating chili but don't want to use the slow cooker. You can use any other ground meat, but I like using lean ground turkey.
My Mom made this when we were growing up, and now my grandkids ask for it too! Great for those nights when you are short on time, but long on hungry kids! The secret is searing the meat briefly before simmering in gravy. Comfort Food!!
Beef and green chilies mixed with beef gravy. Can be fried for chimichangas or rolled in warm tortilla for green chili burrito. It is simple and good. I usually don't measure, so I'm guessing on amounts. Feel free to use less or more of something.
