Miz Helen is having her 3rd Annual Texas Chili Cook Off. Be sure to visit her blog and vote for your favorite chili. I would love it if you voted for me.
2 lbs. ground beef
1 29 oz. can tomato sauce
1 29 oz. can kidney beans, with liquid
1 29 oz. can pinto beans, with liquid
1 cup diced onion
1 7oz. can chopped green chiles
1 stalk celery, diced
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
2 t. cumin powder
3 T. chili powder
1 and 1/2 t. black pepper
2 t. salt
2 cups water
1. Brown ground beef in large dutch oven. Add onion and continue to cook for a few minutes. Drain off fat. TIP: Using a potato masher breaks the beef into pea-size pieces.
2. Add the remainder of ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring every so often for 2-3 hours. TIP: Use your oven as a slow cooker and put the whole pot in, covered, and cook at 220 degrees for several hours.
Serve with shredded cheese, sour cream & avocado slices.
Cornbread is always good with a bowl of chili. Click here for the recipe.
