Chili Night

Even though the weather is still a little warm, it's Fall and that means Chili! Norm and I like spicy foods, so we really kick the heat up a notch in our chili with the addition of some habaneros, a little cayenne and a couple of dashes of Tobasco. Coupled with some basic bisquick butter milk biscuits (i topped them with some butter and a little garlic salt and parsley) and a salad, we had ourselves a great dinner!

Ann's Easy Chili
(Source: me!)

1/2 lb extra lean (95% lean) ground beef
2 habaneros, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 C diced white onion
1 can diced tomatoes with jalapenos
1 can diced tomatoes, chili style
1 can tomato paste
1 can Bush's chili style beans
1 T chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/4 t cayenne powder
salt and pepper and hot sauce to taste

Brown ground meat in cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add garlic, habanero and onion. Cook until onion is tender. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, beans and spices. Let simmer 20 minutes until thickened.

I like my chili over whole wheat macaroni, topped with shredded mexican cheese blend, sour cream and a dash of tobasco....yum!
