The Most Amazing Chili Ever!

I created what I believe is the most amazing chili ever. It topped any pot of chili I've ever made and I have decided that you are all worthy of the recipe. :-)

Laura's Amazingly Easy Chili

2 lbs ground chuck
1 large onion, diced
1 Tbs kosher salt
1 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs Cholula Seasoning - Original
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp garlic powder
2 packets McCormick Chili Seasoning

2 cans Del Monte diced tomatoes - Zesty Chili Style
1 box Pomi strained tomatoes
1 can Luck's beans - Pintos and Northern Beans

In a large Dutch Oven, brown ground beef with the onion, salt, chili powder, Cholula, cumin and garlic powder. Once completely browned, drain the meat well and return to the pot. Add the two packets of chili seasoning and stir until completely mixed into the meat. Add the diced tomatoes and the strained tomatoes and the beans. Stir until well combined. Simmer on medium-low about 30 minutes and enjoy!

Now that we're getting into cold weather season, I believe I'll be making this alot. I will say that the seasoned diced tomatoes really were the ticket to this quick chili tasting like it had been simmering for hours.

Ooooo!! I'm totally going to swipe this recipe! I use the McCormick packet but never thought of adding Cholula! I have Cholula in my cabinet right now!

Thanks for the great tip!

Yumm. Chili. Just reading through your recipe made me hungry. Since I don't do the chili cookin', I may have to pass your recipe on to Mr. C!

PS- My security word that I have to type in this time is "piossedu". I hate when someone is PIOSSED off. hee hee.
