Winter is coming to a close (hopefully) so for those last couple weeks of cold, cozy up with some chili. If you watched the video or are looking at that list of ingredients, don’t freak out. Getting the ingredients is the most work you’re going to have to do. So go to the store and pick up:

2 pounds ground beef chuck

1 pound bulk Italian sausage

3 (15 ounce) cans chili beans, drained

1 (15 ounce) can chili beans in spicy sauce

2 (28 ounce) cans diced tomatoes with juice

1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste

1 large yellow onion, chopped

3 stalks celery, chopped

1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped

1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped

2 green chile peppers, seeded and chopped

1 tablespoon bacon bits

4 cubes beef bouillon

1/4 cup chili powder

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 tablespoon dried oregano

2 teaspoons ground cumin

2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon white sugar

Brown the meat, drain the beans, and dump it all in a pot. Cook it on a low heat for two hours, stirring occasionally.

See? A child could make this. Or a college student with the cooking skills of a child.

This recipe makes a TON of chili too. I had a couple of leftover containers of it, so I stuck it in the freezer to have later. Also you can make a ton of things with chili, such as:

Chili nachos

Chili dogs

Chili and mac & cheese

Chili with rice

Chili in a breakfast burrito

Chili on taco salad

The list could go on forever. By making this chili one time, you’ll have meals for a week. It fills you up, is fairly good for you, will last you forever, and most of all tastes wonderful.
