It’s that time of year again. The time of year where I love to let something simmer on the stove top during Sunday afternoon! And the time of year where I love to be able to pull soup out of the freezer for a weeknight meal too!

That being said today I made chili (and I doubled the recipe, so I’d have leftovers to freeze)  This is the recipe I got from my mom. (She claims it is Betty Crocker’s recipe)  It’s incredibly easy and very tasty!  Oh, and it’s pretty good for you too!

Chili Con Carne

1 lb ground beef
1/2 large onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1-2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp salt
1-2 bay leaves
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp paprika
1 (1# 12oz) can of tomatoes (chopped, diced, or whole)
1 (16 oz) can kidney beans

Brown ground beef and drain.  Add onion and pepper, cook until tender.

In large stock pot, add all ingredients EXCEPT the beans. Simmer for about 2 hours, adding water as needed for the “right” consistency.  Add beans, and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.

Serve with sour cream and cheese! YuM!!!
