Fall is coming, even if the temperatures have yet to reflect it. I made my first fall baked good the other day (pumpkin muffins…mmm…), and have started craving some of my hearty comfort food dishes.
We all have those dishes that evoke childhood memories and make us feel content.
We also have our favorite chili recipe that we’ll defend to the death.
This is my family’s chili, one of my all time top comfort foods. I only recently got the recipe, and will admit that there’s some tweaking that will occur in the future, but for now, it’s perfect just the way it is. Like Bridget Jones.
You throw it in the crockpot for hours. Genius.
Bridget could cook this. Hopefully it wouldn’t be another blue soup incident for her.
- 3 cans hot chili beans (undrained)
- 3 cans various beans (I used black, kidney, and red, rinsed and drained)
- 1 can Rotel (undrained)
- 1 package chili seasoning mix
- 1 lb ground beef/turkey/whatever meat you choose
Brown meat. Put in crockpot with everything else. Mix it up.
Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4.
Possible toppings include diced onions, cheese, crumbled Fritos, and copious amounts of sour cream (dairy free be damned).
I’ll curl up with a bowl and pretend it’s cold enough for skinny jeans and a pair of Frye boots. Swoon.
