“She” has never been much of a cheater. She never cheated in school, She never cheated on boyfriends, She certainly has never cheated on “He”. She might have cheated on a diet once or twice, but we won’t divulge all her secrets here! But, the one thing She never hesitates to cheat on is cooking!
If you’ve read very many posts on this blog, you realize that cooking is not her passion. It’s something She usually does only when necessary. She’s thankful that He doesn’t deem it necessary too often. However, the pull of the beautiful Fall weather we’ve had lately has spun a magic spell on her, and She started craving homemade chili. Trust me, we use the term “homemade” very loosely here!
You must know by now that if you want recipes or dish ideas that call for more than three or four ingredients, all of those probably in cans, you should visit someone like Ginger, who has all kinds of mouth-watering recipes on her site. Or, Alicia, who obviously enjoys this delicious domestic art. Here, you get the quickest and least-effort-required cooking ideas! The funny thing is, when She serves her Chili to guests, she gets rave reviews! She certainly doesn’t think it is that special, but if the masses are pleased, who are we to question that?
If you would like to make a quick, extremely easy pot of chili, just do what she does.
Brown ground beef, or turkey, drain, then add 2 cans each of DelMonte Stewed Tomatoes – Mexican Recipe and Bush’s Chili Beans. Let simmer 10 minutes or more. That’s it. I promise! Of course, many of you will want to add your own touch to this very simple “recipe”, and you should certainly feel free to do so. But, She thinks that would defeat the purpose! Throw on some cheese and crackers, and this stuff is good eatin’!
You should know that She doesn’t do spicy. Everything that goes into this chili is mild, resulting in a wonderfully smooth chili taste with no afterburner! If you are wondering why the tomatoes are in the blender, it’s because “He” can’t stand to bite into a tomato. He doesn’t mind the taste, and he knows they are in there, but we can’t go having any tomato chunks! If only she could buy these already pureed, this would be even that much easier!
Sorry there’s no photo of the finished product to share. But it was apparently pretty good, judging from the empty bowls!
