Yesterday, we continued our tradition of carving pumpkins with one of my oldest, and one of our dearest friends, Thomas. It’s been 3 years now of us carving pumpkins together, and though other people have come and gone from the equation, and moved on with their lives, we’ve always managed to get the three of us together for a few awesome traditions.
I made chili, which I’ll post the EASY recipe at the bottom of this post, and my VERY first home made apple pie, made from scratch without any help! Yay! I haven’t tried it yet though, but I heard it was pretty good.
Onto the DELICIOUS chili recipe!
I made this up on my own, so you can always change it to however you think you’d like it best!!
1lb ground beef, ground turkey, chicken or tofu, or whatever you prefer
2 cans petite diced tomatoes
2 cans tomato SAUCE, the small cans.
2 cans Bushes CHILI beans, Medium trust me. I’m a wimp when it comes to spices and medium is the way to go, never get mild, at least get medium haha
1 can red kidney beans, drained
1 package chili seasoning (or home made)
1 cup diced onion (I just use minced onion you buy in the seasoning section!)
Cook meat, until brown/done. Drain fat
toss meat, and all the other ingredients into a large pot.
heat until hot
top with cheese, sour cream, onions or whatever you prefer!
Eat then enjoy!
