This Easy Beef Chili is a hearty and complete meal! Serve with crusty bread, corn bread or tortillas. Done in just 30 minutes
I know…Chili sounds like a fall-winter meal! But this morning I woke craving it. My oldest daughter, Andrea, loves it. My husband not so much but I still prepare the whole recipe. It is more than enough for two so I freeze the rest to use it one of those days I have no desire or time to cook.
This recipe was one of the first ones I learned when we arrived to the United States 10 years ago. A dear friend of mine taught me how to prepare it. The only differences from the original recipe is that I use a lot more garlic and chili powder. I love the intensity that those two ingredients add to the chili. However, if you do not like it that way you only have to reduce the amount of those two ingredients to your taste.
