So incredibly simple, its almost embarrassing.
1 to 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef
some onion – a tablespoon or a cup, however much you like
1 can petite diced tomatoes, do not drain
1 can red kidney beans, drained
1 can Bush’s Chili Magic, mild or medium – yes, it is MAGIC
*additional optional ingredients if you have them:
- chopped bell pepper – add when you add the onion
- freshly ground black pepper – add towards the end of cooking
- some heat – Tony Chachere’s More Spice works well, but watch the saltiness
- shredded cheddar cheese
- Fritos – if you lean that way
Use a pot big enough for all the ingredients. Brown the meat & onion and remove most of the fat. Dump in the canned ingredients. Simmer awhile.
-if you use 1 1/2 lbs of ground meat, you may want 2 cans of Chili Magic or at least another can of beans
-Chili Magic is not the same as Bush’s chili beans and sometimes it is hard to find in the grocery store. I don’t know why its not always with the canned beans.
