What better way to spend time a few days before Halloween than carving pumpkins and eating chili. The holidays come and go so fast, it is easy to forget to embrace them and truly enjoy the process of the holiday. We are often so stressed through the holidays that we don’t take time to take a step back and really appreciate the time with our families and friends.
It is still hot out in Arizona, so making hot chili was pushing it a little, but my daughter requested chili with pumpkin carving so we went ahead and made chili. I mean, we have to set the fall mood, even if it is still in the 90s here!! The chili was delicious and extremely simple to make!!!
2 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 white onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 jalapeño, finely chopped
1 red bell pepper, finely chopped
1/2 poblano pepper, finely chopped
1 Large can tomato sauce
1 can Rotel Tomato chunks (whichever flavor you want)
2 cans Kidney Beans
1 can pinto beans
Green onion – garnishments
Sautee garlic, onions, jalapeño, poblano and red bell pepper in oil in large soup pot
Add ground beef and cook until browned – you need to season the meat with salt, pepper and chili powder.
once the meat and peppers are cooked, add in tomato sauce and can of rotel and stir
Add in all three cans of beans and stir
Season the broth – add salt, pepper, chili powder, paprika, cumin and a pinch of cayenne. The seasoning is really up to you. Be sure not to over season with spices as it will already have a kick to it.
Let the chili simmer for a couple of hours.
Serve hot with shredded cheddar cheese and green onion on top to garnish.
So simple and so yummy.
We either serve our chili with a spoon bread or just a tortilla with melted cheese or butter.
Hope you enjoy. Let me know what you think 🙂
