Recipe Info

Super yummy chili for a cold day, or when you feel like something a bit spicy!

1 500g box macaroni
250-300g ground beef (or whatever ground meat you prefer)
2 Medium onions, diced
2 Medium bell peppers, diced
1 can, diced tomatoes (or 4 fresh tomatoes, diced)
1 can, Black beans
1 can, Kidney beans
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 t Garlic powder
1 t Onion Powder
1 t Parsley
Salt and Pepper to taste
1-2 T Chili powder (add more or less to your personal taste, better to start with less, and add more, to your desired level of spicy!)

Method: I usually cut all the veggies first to save time! In a medium to large pot, add a little olive oil or butter and heat to a sizzle. Add the garlic and brown it slightly, releasing the fragrance. Next, add the peppers and onions, cooking for 2-3 minutes. Add in the ground meat next and brown thoroughly. Then you will add in the canned tomatoes, all of the seasonings, and the beans, liquid and all. Stir it up and mix well!! Bring back to a good boil, and reduce heat to let it simmer on low for about 30 minutes. While the chili is simmering, in a medium to large pot, cook the macaroni according to package directions. Now make sure the macaroni is done, drain well, and set aside. Once the chili has thickened up a bit, and some of the liquid has gone, remove from the heat and serve hot with the macaroni. I usually pair mine with grated cheese, and sour cream! Enjoy!
