Fuller Chili

The countdown is on to the big game.  What will you be serving for the Super Bowl?  Change it up and make chili.  A chili bar is a fun way to let your guest garnish their chili with their favorite yummies.  I’m a sucker for a Frito Pie.  This regional treat always makes me happy.  You can see that I add the toppings.   Change the score this year with your own chili bar.
The countdown to Super Bowl has begun! -AF

Fuller Chili
(the first recipe my mother-in-law shared with me- A few adaptions have occurred but she still loves me!)

1 1/2 lb. hamburger or turkey meat

1 bell pepper

1 white onion

1 large can Ranch Style Beans

1 large can diced tomatoes

1 can stewed tomatoes

1 can Rotel (if you like it hot)

1 large can of tomato juice

1 pkg. chili powder (envelope)

1 T chili powder

1 t garlic

Brown meat.  Drain any fat.  Add package of chili powder and water.  Let season set.  In large soup pot, soften onions and bell peppers about 4 minutes.  Now add everything to soup pot.  The last ingredient I add  is the tomato juice.  You need to make the executive decision of how thick you want your chili.  Decisions, decisions.  Bring chili to a boil.  Simmer for at least 30 minutes.  You can also make in a crockpot.

Set the chili bar.  We add shredded cheese, onions, sour cream, and hot sauce.  Plus we love Frito pies. Load it up!

Make it a Frito Pie!

One thought on “Fuller Chili

  1. A family staple for sure!
    A few changes on this end too – we now use ONLY turkey (gotta watch the cholesterol), I add a can of black beans (protein and fiber) with the Ranch beans and use only 1 can of Rotel Chili Fixin’s Tomatoes. No chili pkg (too much sodium) and rarely need to add chili powder as the Rotel seems to be plenty spicy.
    Chili with garlic bread for dipping the first night and Frito Pie the next!!
    …and yes, I still love you!!!!!!
