Skillet Chili
  • Cooking Time: 60 minutes
  • Servings: 4 to 6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 23 minutes
  • 1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (6 oz.) can tomato paste
  • 1 (16 oz.) can chili beans (I used kidney beans)
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. hot pepper sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. seasoning salt (I used ground cumin)
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cayenne pepper (I used ground black pepper)
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  1. Place ground beef in a large, deep skillet; cook over medium high heat; drain excess fat.
  2. Stir in onion, green pepper, tomato sauce, tomato paste and beans; season with chili powder, salt, hot pepper sauce, cayenne pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally until desired consistancy (at least one hour for best flavor).
I found this chili recipe on 'Allrecipes', and it was submitted by Andrew Chinn. I pretty much followed the original recipe, except that I added a can of diced tomatoes (we like tomatoes in our chili), and instead of chili beans I used kidney beans; instead of seasoned salt, I substituted ground cumin; and instead of using cayenne pepper, I used ground black pepper (I was out of cayenne).
