Chili Ingredients.

Here’s What You Need for this Bowl of Chili

  • Browned burger like hamburger or brown sausage
  • Onion and Beans (You can use the traditional kidney beans or pinto beans, but my recipe calls for black and cannellini beans).
  • Seasonings: Chili powder, salt and pepper, brown sugar
  • Tomato juice (tomato sauce will work in a pinch)

Here’s How you Do It

  1. Brown ground beef with the onion in a little oil in a large pot on the stove. 
  2. Add a little flour and a little water to thicken the whole soup. Stir with a wooden spoon.
  3. Then add the remaining ingredients (seasonings) and let it simmer for a while, making some of the best chili bean soup you’ve ever tasted! 

Tips and Tricks

  • For a spicy kick, add a little cayenne pepper or chili sauce to your chili.
  • Lots of folks enjoy the taste of a green bell pepper in their chili, if you do, chop some into pencil eraser size pieces and add when you put the onion in large pan.
  • This is an easy busy day meal and is terrific on a snow day. 
  • Top the whole thing with cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream. A side of warm bread is perfect!
  • You can make this in the slow cooker for a handy meal that’s ready when you get home. Just brown the meat and onions and then put the whole thing in the crockpot and set on low. It’ll be ready in 6-8 hours. 
  • This is great served with a chili dog and some tortilla chips

A VERSE TO SHARE

This makes me think that even though many Bible scholars attribute this little horn to someone in the past, perhaps we should all be careful with folks who have audacious boasting and arrogance. That’s not how Jesus calls us to be anyway.

Daniel 7:8

While I was thinking about the horns—look—another horn, this time a little one, grew up among them. Three of the first horns were yanked up by their roots right in front of it. Look! It had eyes like those of a human being and a mouth that boasted with audacious claims.”
