Yesterday I woke with a hankering for Chili! So I made my bean-less chili! You can spice this up any way you would like. You can also add beans if they fit in with your life style. Sometimes I also add chunks of steak! Today it was a last minute thing so I did NOT have steak chunks thawed or ready for the chili.
I do keep it simple and use ground beef I prefer 80/20, garlic, peppers, a can of Ro Tel and a can of sauce! My favorite sauce to cook with is Furmano’s it has just 3net carbs per 1/4 cup so in recipes such as chili it works great!
Once I brown the meat I drain the access oil and set the meat aside. I then add butter to the same pot followed by the onions, garlic, and peppers and cook about 8 minutes until they are tender then throw everything else in there and let it simmered on low covered mixing every few minutes. I do let it simmer a good hour or more! tasting and seasoning as it goes cause lets be honest some like it hotter than others! I like a good medium chili a nice kick is perfect too hot just ruins it.
Once it is good and ready spoon into a bowl and top with cheddar or mozzarella cheese and sour cream! OR you can even top a sweet potato with it!! OR HOTDOGS!!! come on ya’ll think outside the box!
If you give this a try do let me know what you think!! Any ideas on how you would “tweak” this recipe? Do share!
