Domestic Me- Dad's Chili

Please contain your enthusiasm as I try to illustrate my achievements in the kitchen.

It has been so freaking cold and snowy here already I can tell it's going to be a long winter. When the season rolls around nothing sounds better for dinner than something warm and filling. I make a lot of soups nov-mar.

This recipe is from my dad who has made this chili....for as long as I can remember. I changed out the ground beef for ground chicken and you honestly can't tell the difference. We also accidentally got pinto beans at the store one time and haven't looked back since.

1 lb lean ground meat

1 yellow onion

1 large can tomato sauce

1 small can tomato paste + 1 small can of water

1 can pinto beans

1 can kidney beans

2 tbsp chili powder

1 tsp sugar

Salt & Pepper to taste

Brown meat and onion then drain. Add in all other ingredients and let simmer for 30 minutes. Make sure to have lots of shredded cheddar on hand to top the chili with- we like ours extra cheesy!
