Oh, goodness, I'm really loving my Gooseberry Patch cookbook "Dinner$ on a Dime". It's just packed FULL of economical and super tasty recipes. Here's another one that I made the other day.
YOU CAN FIND THIS IN THE GOOSEBERRY PATCH COOKBOOK "DINNER$ ON A DIME".
I love chili. I mean, I really love to eat chili. It's just plain good comfort food. As far as I'm concerned, it's also very good for you. So when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. It's easy :) :) Here's the recipe:
* 1 lb. ground beef chuck
* 1 Tbsp. dried, minced onion
*10-3/4 oz. can tomato soup
* 2/3 cup water
* 16 oz . can red beans
* 1- 1/4 oz. pkg. mild chili seasoning mix
In a skillet over medium heat, brown the beef with the onion; drain.
Stire in remaining ingredients; reduce heat to low.
Simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Make 4 servings
HEATHER THE WEATHER'S NOTES ON COOKING IN THE KITCHEN:
This recipe is a hands-down WINNER :) :) :) This is just exactly how chili should taste --- absolutely yummy :) :)
I did make some changes, because I'm making economical and tasty recipes while using up what I have already in the kitchen. I didn't have minced onion. However, there was a nice little jar of onion powder in my pantry. So that's what I used instead of the minced onion.
Also, I added some sugar to the recipe to counteract the sometimes sharp taste of tomatoes. It's actually a tip at the bottom of the recipe. So it's worth your money to buy the cookbook. I'm the kind of girl who likes her chili spicy, but also with a little bit of sweet. It turned out so GOOD.
I'm making this again tonight. My father and I were at the grocery store earlier this morning. We got a one pound chub of ground beef for just $1.99 a pound. That's a steal of a deal, for sure. So I've had a hankering for this chili ever since the last time I made it ;) :) :)
I also added some nacho blend cheese mix, because I do love cheese, too. Now to figure out how to make a giant pot of this chili :) :) :)
Thank you so much to Gooseberry Patch for letting me share this recipe. I was not paid for this review. I am happily sharing products and companies that I LOVE with you :) :) This is a company that combines cuteness/beauty with the very practical need for good things to cook and eat :) :)
Oh, there are lots of prayer requests. If you could pray for a family at my church. The husband, our church's worship leader, had back surgery today. Pray that everything goes well and he can make a full, complete, and speedy recovery. He has a lovely wife and two super cute kids :) :) :) Pray for lots of things including that God will meet and exceed all the needs that will come up for this family, practical and otherwise. :) :) :)
That's the news from Oregon today . Love and hugs, Heather
