Chili in 30 minutes served with Macaroni

With all of this cold weather we have been having  it calls for a big bowl of hot chili.  I have chosen a quick and easy recipe that you can put together in about 30 minutes especially if you have some browned ground meat in the freezer.  If not it is still quick.  The recipe came from the AJC.   So if you are in a big hurry for chili and don’t want to wait around for 2 or 3 hours for the usual chili then this is for you. 

Rinse with cold water a 15 1/2 oz. can of red kidney beans

You need 3/4 cup of chopped onion

Saute onion in tablespoon of butter

Since I am using browned ground beef that I had in the freezer I am sauteing onion in a little butter.  When browning the ground meat you can cook the onion at the same time and drain on paper towel.

1 lb of browned ground beef

Add 10 oz. can of rotel tomatoes and small can of tomato sauce

Add 1 teaspoon of cumin

 Sorry blurry picture.  

Add 2 teaspoons of chili powder

Add 1 can of drained and rinsed red kidney beans

Let this simmer for about 30 minutes.  You may have to adjust the liquid by adding 1/4 to 1/2 cup of water.  While the chili is simmering then cook macaroni according to directions on the package.    Serve chili on top of the macaroni and top with cheddar cheese. 

Dig in!!!

Here is the recipe for you to enjoy!
