Fork it Up Fridays

Hi! Welcome to Fork it Up Fridays! Each Friday, I share a delicious recipe that I've tried and enjoyed. Some may be a family favorite while others may be something my sister or daughter passed on to me. Hope you enjoy!

Since it's February and we're deep in the winter season (yawn), I thought I'd share my absolute favorite chili recipe. Seriously, this is the only hamburger/red bean chili recipe I use. I usually serve this with a side of homemade coleslaw and cornbread. My sister loves to serve her chili with optional toppings of Fritos, sour cream, and shredded cheddar cheese. Yum! BTW, this isn't the standard way of writing a recipe with the ingredients listed and then the directions. Since this is the original way it was given to me (typed on a typewriter), I'm posting it that way.  :)

Harold's Chili

2 pounds of hamburger (browned)

ADD:

1/2 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 tsp hot chili powder
1 1/2 tsp regular chili powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

ADD DICED:

1 1/2 celery stalks
1 small onion
1/2 green pepper
1/2 hot pepper (fresh)

ADD AND SLOWLY BOIL FOR 45 MINUTES IN COVERED KETTLE:

1 - 28 oz can whole tomatoes (cut up)
1 - 14 1/2 oz can whole tomatoes (cut up)
1 - 46 oz can tomato juice

ADD:

1 - 15 1/2 oz kidney beans
1 tbsp brown sugar

SIMMER 1/2 HOUR IN OPEN KETTLE

Enjoy!!

Next Friday, I'll be sharing a great recipe for ham and potato soup.

Thanks for stopping by!
