Easy Ground Beef Chili-Hunk Of Meat Monday

Disclaimer: I am not a food blogger. Even though I post lots of recipes on this site, Food Blogger is not in my title. I am apologizing in advance for my lack of pictures on this recipe. When I start cooking I often get caught up in what I am doing and forget to take pictures.

I have gotten to the comfort level in my cooking that I no longer “follow” recipes. Sure I still look them up for ideas, but that is usually as far as it goes. This past week I made a super easy ground beef chili. I could have called it Kitchen sink chili, because nearly everything went in it besides the kitchen sink.

East Ground Beef Chili:

  • 2 lbs Zweber Farms ground beef
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • 1 chili pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 10 ripe plum tomatoes sliced
  • 2 cups dry red kidney or black beans soaked
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon marjoram leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Brown ground beef and onion together. Drain only if there is a lot of juice.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to boil and let simmer for at least an hour. When beans are soft the chili is done.
  3. Taste and add salt and pepper.
  4. Top with Organic Valley sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
This easy ground beef chili will serve a crowd. I froze half of it in an ice cream pail for later use.
