Friday we went over to Stephen & Jasmine’s to workout and watch the Olympic opener. (I turned into a freaking fan girl when JK Rowling started reading, who knew?) Since we knew we were going to be over there for a while, we took some brats over to cook up, but Jasmine cooked up a feast and instead we nommed on their dinner.
One of the tasty dishes Jasmine cooked up, among hambugers and brats, was some chili. Not only did it smell HEAVENLY, it tasted delicious. As if that isn’t enough of a reason to go ahead and whip up a pot, it is also RIDICULOUSLY easy to make. We’re talking maybe 15 minutes of actual work. I immediately put it in my meal plan for this week, including using leftovers to top chili cheeseburgers. YUM. She was nice enough to let me share it with all of you kind people.
(And yes, I’m eating chili in the south, in very high temperatures. What? I miss fall!)
Ridiculously Easy, Totally Primal Chili:
2 lbs Ground Beef
1 Onion, diced
2 small or 1 large can of Tomato Sauce
2 cans Diced Tomatoes
Chili Seasoning, to taste
Optional garnishes: Sour cream, cheddar cheese, diced onion, avocado
In a large pan, heat up some oil of choice. Saute onion until soft.
Add ground beef and brown, cooking until no pink remains
Stir in the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and chili seasoning.
Simmer until heated through and flavors have had time to meld.
