Grandma's Best Chili


Fact of life: Any recipe starting with the word "Grandma's" is always sure to be tasty. Grandmas are like little treasures that hold the secrets to a happy tummy. They just have a magic hand for making comfort food that is classic and always tastes delicious!
Here is my little spin on my Grandma's Best Chili. I hope you like it, especially for a crisp cold fall evening. You can simmer it in a crockpot for hours, so it makes for a perfect no-fuss party food!
Recipe: Grandma's Best Chili
Recipe Source: Emmy in her Element
2.25 pounds of lean ground beef
3 cans kidney beans with liquid (I use 2 cans light and one dark red for variation)
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
Pinch of ground pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 cans finely diced canned tomatoes and liquid
1/2 cup dehydrated onion flakes
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 container (8oz) Johnson's Chili con carne (found in the frozen section)
1/2-3/4 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup ketchup
Red pepper flakes if desired for spice.
Brown ground beef. Add remaining ingredients and warm through for at least 30 minutes. Do not boil or beans will split. This chili can be kept in a crock pot or pot on the stove and simmered for hours. Serve with corn bread. Need a recipe? GO HERE
Store left overs in refrigerator. When you are re-heating the chili that has been chilled, it will be thick and you may want to add a bit of extra water to thin it out again.

Note* The chili con carne is a frozen chili concentrate that you can buy. I add half of the 16oz container to this recipe to thicken and flavor it up. It will take your chili to the next level!
