Notre Dame Football Chili

logo-notre-dameTurn on ND Fight Song while making this recipe:

Ingredients:

  • 1-2 Lbs Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper Chopped
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper Chopped
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper Chopped
  • 1 Small Can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Large Can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 Large Can of Brooks Chili Beans (Hot or Mild)
  • 2 Packets of McCormick’s Chili Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Salt to Taste
  • Garnish with shredded cheese, sour cream and Saltine crackers

Directions:

  • Sing the ND Fight Song
  • Brown the ground beef, onion, and peppers all together with one package of McCormick’s chili seasoning.
  • Add beans, tomato sauce and diced tomatoes
  • Add 1-2 cups water depending on how “soupy” you want the chili to be.  I usually just add the water to the empty bean can and add slowly until I get the desired consistency.  Less water will make for a thicker chili.
  • Add the remaining package of McCormick’s chili seasoning.
  • Add crushed red pepper (Add another teaspoon if you want a lot of spice)
  • Salt to taste
  • Simmer on medium to low for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Serve in a soup dish and add shredded cheese, sour cream and Saltine crackers to top.

**We eat this recipe for nearly every ND Football game!  This is definitely a keeper and wonderful on brisk, fall days.
