Its chili out there...(giggle)

I really don't like cold weather. Especially if it's cold AND rainy. Ugh.

All I want to do is bake and cook. Not a bad thing, but my butt might disagree.

I need some chili in my life. Mostly so I can have chili and eggs in the morning. Yissssssss.



Texas Chili (Eff beans)

1lb. ground beef or brisket
1 can of diced tomatoes, or a cup of diced fresh
1/2 of a sweet onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tsp. smoked paprika, sweet or hot
1 tbs. cumin 
2 tbs. chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
1/2-1 tsp. cayenne (optional)
1 can of beer, your choice
1 beef bouillon cube
Salt and pepper

Chopped onion and garlic, if using fresh tomatoes, chop those too. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add a very small amount of oil and sauté onions and garlic for a few minutes, until soft. Add ground beef and cook until brown. 

Throw in bouillon cube and let melt into meat and onions. Add tomatoes and then the can of beer. Add all of your spices along with the salt and pepper to taste. The chili has to cook for a few before it doesn't taste like nothing but beer. 

Let the chili simmer on a medium low heat for at least hour. Adjust seasoning to taste. That's it. Freaking chili. Done.

Put it on some tortilla chips and top with a fried egg. Drool.
