Chile Con Carne

It's that Super Bowl time of year again! Whether you're rooting for the Giants or the Patriots, this dish will sure to be a crowd-pleaser for all the fans. The kids have requested this for dinner tomorrow. It's Don's recipe and I am taking the night off! Bon Appetit and GO Pats!!

2 lbs of chopped beef

1 large onion, diced

2 cans dark red kidney beans, retain liquid
1 can red kidney beans, retain liquid

1 small can tomato sauce

Season with salt, chili powder, crushed red pepper flakes to taste


Brown meat well, (if necessary drain liquid) add onions and cook til transparent, add beans with liquid and tomato, then fill tomato sauce can with water and add.

Cook on medium heat for 1/2 hour, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking

Serve with white rice or tortilla shells, adding cheese, green onion and sour cream as garnish

I never liked chili until I tried this one. It is neither heavy or greasy and you can control the heat, or the lach thereof!
