Danny Frank’s Quick & Easy Chili

Real Estate Agent with JLA Realty TREC # 0524744

1 1/2 pounds Ground Round Beef (or split between ground beef & ground pork)

Cajun Trinity

1 bell pepper (diced)

1 sweet onion (diced)

2 ribs of celery (diced)

1 tablespoon minced Garlic

2 tablespoons Chili Powder (some people also use ground Cumin)

1/2 to 1 teaspoon Tony’s Creole seasoning

2 cans diced Rotel tomatoes

1 can Pinto Beans or Chili Beans (IF WANTED)

Dash of Tabasco sauce

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Chopped Green Onions (for garnish)

Sliced Avocado (for garnish)

Also need a large 6 qt pot and a flat wooden utensil.  Optional – Blender or food processor.

In a large 6 qt pot, turn on the stove heat to medium-to-high #6. 

Pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil.  Sauté the bell pepper, celery and onion until soft.  Add minced garlic.

Push the vegetables to the sides and add the ground meat. 

Begin to break the meat apart with the wooden utensil. 

Add the 2 tablespoons Chili powder and 1/2 teaspoon of Tony’s Creole Seasoning. 

Continue to brown the meat by stirring and chopping into small clumps. 

While the meat is cooking, open Rotel tomatoes. 

Pour one can in a blender or food processor and puree (remember to put the lid on or you will have a red ceiling).  This will create a rich and thick sauce for the chili. 

Once the meat is well cooked, add the tomato puree and the second can of Rotel tomatoes.

Add the pinto beans (IF WANTED) and stir well. 

Allow to simmer uncovered on medium-to-low heat #3 for 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent scorching or burning.

Looks YUMMY! I never thought about putting avocado slices on chili. Great idea! Adds color as well as flavor diversity. I'll have to give that a try next time!
