Momma’s Hearty Chili
By Alicia Edwards
3rd Place Winner of Chili Cook-Off

2 lbs of ground beef
1 yellow onion diced
1 can of stewed tomatoes
1 10oz can of tomato sauce
1 jar of RAGU chunky veggies spaghetti sauce
2 cans of Mexican style chili bean
1can of hot chili beans
2 cans of kidney beans
2 can of pork and beans
3 packs if chili seasoning (hot or mild)
1/3 cup of Alicia’s seasoning blend
1/3 cup of chili powder
1/2 cup of sugar (if desired)

In a large sauce pan begin to brown the ground beef with the diced onions. While the meat is browning open all your canned item and 1 pack of chili seasoning and put them in a large cooking pot, turn them on medium heat and let them start to heat up. When the meat is browned drain off excess grease, and return to stove top on medium heat add the spaghetti sauce, the remainder of the chili seasoning, Alicia’s season blend, and the Chili powder. Mix it well and let it start to bubble, once it starts to bubble mix it with the ingredients in the pot, add sugar and let simmer for about 15 minutes , with occasional string so it doesn’t stick. The longer you let it cook the better it taste.

Try something new!
Something I found to be really tasty, it to put a peanut butter sandwich in the bottom of your bowl and cover it with chili, so that every bite has a bit of peanut butter sandwich in it…very yummy!
