This "kinder, gentler" edition of chili is ready to eat in no time (30 minutes minimum) - and is
especially designed for those young->middle-teens, whose palattes are not yet matured to appreciate the more "gourmet" variants of this incredible food-style!! You know the type - the ones that
look at mom's elaborate, home-cooked meal and often comment: "Awww - not this slop again!!" Well, this is your lucky day!! - here's the "fix" to this problem!!!
To optimize the
SPEED at which you can make this version, I've chosen the latest new "gourmet-class" tomato sauces - food preparation is at a rock-bottom minimum!! I've used ingredients which are designed not to
adversely set off those very fussy, tender, teenaged taste-buds, or wimpy and sensitive palettes of other age groups!! There are no kidney beans here to avoid risking flatulation effects - but you can add a
small can if you insist - it won't change its overall "bouquet"!
Follow the instructions to make days of eating and snacking at a very low cost - and yummy beyond any expectations!!
Ready???? Follow this menu EXACTLY the first time through it, and I guarantee it'll be the "default" meal at your home for years to come!! :)
Required Hardware: 3.8 L slow cooker (or crock pot)
Open ALL cans and set aside. Brown ground beef in deep fry-pan. Turn often to prevent burning. That's it for the "hard work"part!!
Simple, isn't it?? Now, sprinkle on the chili powder - stir into thebeef mix: next, sprinkle on the garlic powder - stir that into the beef mix. Now,stir in the pieces & stem mushrooms.
Next, stir in the first, then the second can of pork and beans. Let simmer for a few minutes. Last easy part: Ladle contents of fry-pan into slowcooker. Turn on slow cooker. Stir in the diced
tomatoes and the tomato sauce.Mix thoroughly. Let simmer in crock pot for at least half an hour - then dig in!!
As in all chili preparations, the taste gets better the longer it simmers!!
I usually let the mixture simmer for a few hours, then I turn the crock pot heater element off. The chili stays hot for hours - then, after it has cooled off, lift the pot out of the heater receptacle and
store the whole thing in your fridge. Use the family ladle to scoop a few into a bowl and nuke for 2 minutes - then eat with buttered toast!! Heaven on earth - it is!!! And the
ingredients cost a lot less than 10 dollars up here in Sudbury!!
