Chili With Beans - Quick Meal

Good morning,

Here's another favorite around here, especially when we want something warm and don't have much time to make it.

That's chili with beans made the easy way:  dice one medium onion and brown with a couple pounds of ground chuck roast.  Drain off grease, then add a can of dark kidney beans and a can of tomato sauce.   Season to taste with 2 to 4 tablespoons of chili powder, pepper, and salt. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Prepare spaghetti per package directions.  Mine is boiling in water with a little olive oil and salt.  Drain the spaghetti and serve...
...with shredded cheddar cheese.  You can also add diced raw onions, but I made this batch so fast I forgot to dice the onions before I took it all to the table.

We really enjoyed this cold weather meal!

All the best,
Lois

That's right, Tex. I drain the meat after browning and use different spices. ;)
