Let's Make Chili

With cold weather knocking on our door, it's time for me to add chili to my list of comfort food. Almost everyone has a chili recipe -- some are more complicated than others.  Mine is super simple -- and equally tasty.  Perfect recipe to throw together during this busy month.

I start with about a pound and a half of hamburger.  Season the hamburger with salt, pepper and McCormick's Monterrey Steak Seasoning (love this stuff).  Brown and crumble the burger.

Side note:  Have you ever used one of these little gadgets from Pampered Chef?  I love it.  It crumbles hamburger or sausage easily and doesn't mess up the finish on your pans.  It's called a Mix 'N Chop and costs $11.50.  It's worth it -- also could make an excellent stocking stuffer.

Sorry, I digress -- back to the chili making.  Place the browned, crumpled burger in a large pot.  Add in two cups of water, a large can of chili beans (I use mild because I'm a spicy wimp), can of kidney beans, can of black beans and a Edmond's Chili block.  The chili block can be found in the refrigerated meat section in most grocery stores.

Let this mixture simmer for an hour or so, stirring occasionally.  That's it.  Your chili will be ready to scoop and garnish with your favorite toppings.
