We are close to the end of May. It has been raining outside for the past week and is supposed to rain into next week. There are 18 new inches of snow in the mountains. I am making some chili and sitting by the fire!!!!
Putting The Chili Together:
1 lb hamburger (I also like to use left over roast beef.)
2 cans black beans
1 can chili beans
1 can tomatoes with chilies
1 can jalopeno hot chili
1 can thick chili
1 large can tomato sauce (or crushed tomatoes)
1 cup water (add more if you want thinner chili)
1 tbsp. chili powder (or to taste)
1 tsp. cumin
Salt and Pepper to taste
Hot pepper flakes (optional and to taste)
Fry hamburger or shred left-over roast beef. Put meat in a big pot and add the remaining ingredients. Heat through. Serve with sour cream, cheese and chips.
