Someone remind me again of the date - isn't the end of April not suppose to feel like early March? Geez - this weather is getting to me. Yesterday we had a teaser with 60's now today and tomorrow - more 40 degree days! Twins game is canceled... 2nd time in 5 days due to rain. Ugh!
So tonight's recipe is more of a "winter" dish but most appropriate for the type of day it was. It's called Simple Easy Chili - fast to make and simple ingredients.
Chop the peppers and brown with the ground beef
The seasonings - chili powder and Zesty Italian dry salad mix are added
The rest of the ingredients go in next, bring to boil - kind of half cover the pot and simmer anywhere from 30-45 minutes.
We like these cute mini corn loaves from Target
This warmed us up on this cool night - we debated about how many stars - we decided on 3 only because we've had fancier chili! But this is very good!
Top with cheese if you like
