Our Favorite Chili Recipe

Here is our favorite Chili recipe. We use black beans instead of kidney beans because we prefer them. They probably have a better health benefit too.

Chili Recipe

Brown 1# ground beef

Add  1 medium onion, chopped

Cook until onion is soft.

Drain grease off.

Add 30 oz of canned black beans or soak and cook dry black beans

2 c whole tomatoes (can use canned or frozen too)

1 c seasoned tomato sauce. I use plain sauce and season it with some Italian seasoning

1 1/2 T chili powder

1 1/2 t salt

1 bay leaf

Simmer at least 1 hour. This recipe can easily be doubled or quadrupled and frozen for another day. I use extra chili to make Chili Pie.
