I use a recipe that was on the label of a can of Red Kidney Beans back in the 1970's - that's when I was first married and learning how to cook! I still use this same basic recipe now, with a few additions. I didn't have red kidney beans on hand so I used a can of black beans. Need to stock up on those beans! I also added some crushed garlic.
Brown in 2 Tbsp. fat:
1 Cup chopped onion
1/4 Cup chopped green pepper
1 lb. ground lean beef
1 Can Red Kidney Beans
1 3/4 Cups stewed diced tomatoes
1 to 2 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 Tbsp. vinegar
Simmer for one hour stirring frequently
I always add a can of mushrooms - drained, a can of corn niblets, a can of chick peas or white kidney beans, and sometimes a can of pork and beans. We like this served with a garnish of fresh chopped peppers and small chunks of cheese!
It's hard to believe that just a few days ago we were
enjoying the warm sights, sounds, smells,
and tastes of Mexico!
Warm thoughts to you till next time.............
