It’s Chilly Outside … But There’s Chili Inside

Leave a comment

Growing up, our family was conscious/conscientious of every penny spent. Mom and Dad always made sure the food was plenteous and fruits and veggies abounded. But when it got cold out, really cold, I always looked forward to our dad cooking Chili.

Chili in our home was quick and basic. Lots of ground beef, chopped white onion, cans of red kidney beans (3 or 4), a jar of Heinz Chili sauce, and some ketchup. Done. Ok, onions got cooked first, beef got browned, but then you just dumped everything else in and let it simmer for a half hour. Nothing else was quicker or more satisfying for me, especially when paired with mom’s homemade buns (a recipe for another post).
