Ground Beef Chili
Yields – 10 Servings
2 lb ground beef
1 large onion – finely chopped
3 gloves garlic – finely chopped
2 -15 ounce cans of chili beans with sauce, I prefer Brooks Chili Beans
1 – 28 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 tablespoons chili powder – more dependent on your preference
1 tablespoon bottled hot pepper sauce
Garnishes: sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese and chopped green onions
In a large stock pot, cook meat, onion, chili powder, paprika and garlic, until meat is browned and onion is tender. Drain excess fat from stock pot. Stir in chili beans, crushed tomatoes and hot sauce. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Cover and simmer for approximately 2 hours.
Serve chili with grated cheddar cheese, sour cream and chopped green onions.
