fast food friday

Friday nights always were crazy. Getting out of school, going to a game or out with friends, Everyone wanted to eat and run,  Chili always made them stop and eat.

2 pounds of ground beef or ground turkey

1/2 pound of sirloin steak -diced into 1/4 inch pieces

2 tablespoons canola oil

one large chopped onion

2 packages of packaged chili mix. Just buy the regular one and not the hot or extra hot variety.

1 can rotelle tomatoes

1 can diced tomatoes

1 can of tomato sauce

1 can baked beans

2 cans  red kidney beans with liquid

1 can pink kidney beans with liquid

1 jalapeno pepper , washed and put into the chili whole. You can poke holes in it but don’t cut it. The chili will be too hot.

Brown  all the meat,oil and onion. Drain off the oil. Add everything else and simmer till everything is hot. The longer it simmers, the better it is.

You can also add grated  or chopped carrots .

Toppings are the best. Try grated cheese any kind.  I like mexican mix or a good cheddar. Use any of these, onions cilantro, sour cream, avacado,chopped tomato, black olives and chopped hot peppers and tortilla chips.

Save the leftover for the Saturday cookout as a topping on hot dogs
