California Chili Recipe



1 lb. lean ground beef
 <br>2 15-oz cans diced tomatoes
 <br>2 15-oz cans red kidney beans
 <br>1 large onion
 <br>chili powder
 <br>salt and pepper
 <br>2-3 chili peppers (optional)


One large stew pot
 <br>One large cooking spoon
 <br>sharp knife
 <br>can opener


Dice the onion and brown it with the ground beef in the stew pot. Add the cans of tomatoes and kidney beans, liquid and all, and heat to a simmering boil. Add chili powder, salt, and pepper to taste. Goes great with biscuits!
 <br>For a different, more Southwest flavor, cut up and add two or three large, green chili peppers (remove seeds and stem) and brown with the meat and onions.

CommentYou can cook dumplings on top of this stew. Make them by using complete biscuit mix according to the recipe on the box for drop biscuits. Cover and cook the chili at a simmer until the dumplings are done.
