Moonie Makes Chili

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, Moonie brings you the following recipe.

1 lb. ground beef
2 TB chili powder (note: original recipe called for 1 TB but it wasn’t enough)
1 chopped onion
Can(s) of beans of your choice (note: I used kidney, black, and pinto. I like my chili very beany!)
16-oz can of stewed tomatoes (note: some brands only come 14.5-oz-sized, so I supplement with a couple ounces tomato sauce as needed)

First, brown the beef. Season with salt/pepper as desired.

Then, chop and add the onion. (Poor Moonie. He has little tears on his face from that part.)

Next, add the stewed tomatoes. (“Whee!” Moonie reports from his ride on the can opener.)

Add in chili powder and beans and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding water if needed.

If you’re feeling extra adventurous like Moonie, add some hot sauce. (I passed, but my adventurous little troll couldn’t resist a few squirts of the stuff.)

Serve topped with cheese for best results. (“Lots of cheese,” Moonie whispered. “OK, lots,” I whispered back.)
