Game Day Chili

Featured in the December/January 2014 issue of Eat Drink Mississippi


1-1/2 pounds hamburger meat 

3 (16 ounce) cans diced tomatoes

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium bell pepper, chopped

1 (16 ounce) can pinto beans, rinsed and drained 

1 (16 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained

1 (1.25 ounce) packet chili seasoning mix

4 tablespoons chili powder

2 cups water

In a large stockpot over medium-high heat, brown hamburger meat until no longer pink. Using a slotted spoon, remove meat from the pan. Reserve the drippings.


Add onion and bell pepper to the pot. Saute until tender and onions are translucent, about 7-10 minutes. Add the meat back in, stir in beans, chili mix, chili powder, and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer for at least 1-1/2 hours. 


Serve in bread bowls, if desired. Garnish with shredded cheese before serving. 


Serves 6-8.
