Sooz's Chili (Ground Beef and Beans)

Sooz's Chili (Ground Beef and Beans) created by Elly in Canada

Although I have modified it some, I’ve been making this chili since 1977 when my then fiancé asked me to please use his ex-wife’s recipe for chili because he didn’t like mine as well! Guess we know why I didn’t marry HIM! I know that there are a ton of Chili recipes on this board, but I'd like to have mine out there too for my family to have access to. I have two recipes for chili: this one (which is a bit sweeter and fairly mild) and one made with brisket. This is the one I make when I am in a hurry and I used it to make A Good Things Hully Gully (Frito Chili Salad) Recipe # 224143. I also serve this over corn bread or rolled in flour tortillas as burritos.

ingredients

directions

  • In a Dutch oven or large saucepan brown ground beef. In the last few minutes drain off the excess fat.
  • Add cumin, garlic, paprika, oregano, onion powder, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, salt, sugar, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes and mix well.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  • Add both cans of beans with their liquid.
  • Cover and simmer for an additional hour (or more!).
  • Serve in bowls over crumbled corn bread topped with shredded cheese and onions (for those who like onions).
  • ****Sometimes I just brown the ground beef, add all of the rest of the the ingredients and then dump everything in a crock pot to simmer on low all day.***.

    Thanks SoozieQ for a quick and easy chili! I added a diced onion, more cumin (because I love it in chili!) two tablespoons of chili powder and a heaping teaspoon of sugar; I forgot the Worcestershire sauce!! I like lots of beans in chili so added two 19 ounce cans of romano beans (rinsed and drained) and a large can of diced tomatoes. I added a sliced hot Italian sausage I had to use up, and a half teaspoon of pepper and dried crushed chilies. A great tasting chili!!
