Baby it's cold outside... Lets make us up a big pot of Chili

I make Chili different ways here is the way I made it last fall/winter

The air is getting that nip in the air 

so I thought...

it's time to make a big 'ol pot of Chili

Here is what you will need,,,,

*1 can of Chili Beans(or Kidney Beans)(or Both)
*1 can of Hunts Chili starter in a can
*1 pouch of McCormicks Chili seasoning 
*1 jumbo can of tomato sauce (see photo below)
* 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef

How to make it

In a large pot 
fill with water
put ground beef in pot with water

*while that is boiling *

*Make your corn bread up and pop it in the oven*
* if you want muffins for after dinner make that and pop it in too*

boil until done
Drain your Ground Beef
put it back into your pot while heat is on med/low
while you open your cans & packets
add in your packet and hunts
add in your tomato sauce and beans

ok this is where you may want to add water...
I do not
my family likes their chili thick-ish
but if you like thinner chili than add about 1-2 cups of water

and its done!

our Banana Nut Muffins
