Today we are sharing our easy chili recipe. It’s not that fancy but it’s quick, easy and so delicious. Being from New England, we are super excited for the Patriots Game tomorrow and you can bet, chili is on the menu! Along with a few other yummy appetizers of course.
Easy Chili Recipe
I like to buy the Mexican shredded cheese. It’s a combo of shredded and mozzarella. If you find that your recipe is too liquidy, mix in another small can of tomato paste. It will really depend on the type of ground beef you buy. I always buy a lean (93% +) ground beef which means the fat will be minimal but if you buy 80% (which definitely makes the chili taste better), you will have more liquidy fat to deal with.
You may want to even drain your beef once it’s cooked to avoid a ton of fat.
The recipe only calls for 8 ingredients and honestly, it’s the easiest chili recipe on the planet. Many times we just leave the chili in the skillet on the stove and everyone serves themselves by filling a bowl or plate.
We normally have sour cream, additional shredded cheese and tortilla chips as toppings. You can certainly add many more topping options but we tend to keep it pretty simple. My dad likes to eat the chili without chips but the rest of us prefer tortilla chips.
Who is watching the big game tomorrow? Even my grandparents love to watch the Patriots. They are so funny because many times, they can’t see the play that was made but they know from the reaction, it’s was either good or bad. -ha.
