Recipe: Chili a la Dito

Another one of my favorite things in life is this chili.

My momma makes this delightful dinner every year on Halloween. Growing up, it became a tradition with my siblings, parents, and all of our neighbors and our best friends to enjoy chili in the evening before heading out into the cold to collect our favorite candies.

Chili a la Dito
feeds four people, takes 45 minutes

1 pound of ground beef
1 whole onion, chopped
1 can of chili beans
1 can of Italian stewed tomatoes
1 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
1 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of paprika
1 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of pepper

  • In a large pot, cook the meat, onions, salt, and pepper on medium heat until the meat is browned.
  • Add the chili beans and stewed tomatoes. (You may want to break apart/cut up the tomatoes first unless you want a chunkier chili.)
  • Add the spices and stir them in.
  • Allow pot to sit at medium heat and cook for about half an hour.

The longer it cooks, the better it tastes. OH! And this is incredibly brilliant left-over, too!

Top with cheese, onions, or anything else you like on your chili.

Stay warm everyone! :]
