Old World Style Chili

Thursday, March 2, 2017
The first hint of fall I love to start a big pot of chili on the stove to simmer.


Chili is one of those comfort foods that really is very good all year round but I really enjoy it in the cooler month.


The great thing about chili, it's economical, feeds a large crowd and always welcomed at parties, game day and even barbecues in the summertime.


Chili makes great leftovers for a filling in Mexican Lasagna, tortilla bowls and even the filling for air fryer hot pockets.


I love chili over baked potatoes, chili cheese fries and even a topping for chili burgers and hotdogs.


A one-pan meal that's so versatile and you won't get tired of with all these yummy ideas!

Easy Comfort Food

Economical feeds a large family, great for leftovers and delicious.


What more can you ask for?


This old fashioned classic is always a favorite in our home.

What is Chili?



What makes up a pot of chili is open to debate. I


It is a thick sauce of meat and chilies (peppers).


Some argue that meat is essential and that beans have no place in a true chili.


Most cooks include tomatoes, but some shun them.


There is the usual tomato, pepper and tomato sauce chili, white chicken chili, chili verde, vegetarian chili, Southwest chili, Italian Merlot Chili and three-alarm chili that's hot hot hot.

More About Chili



Chili as we know it had its origins amid mariachi bands in the Spanish for markets of San Antonio, but in the past century, it has spread far and wide.


It became the official state dish of Texas in 1977 and is well-known throughout the country in some of its many versions.


To me, chili has to have beans, tomato sauce, and not too hot.


Just a little heat is perfect.

My Version and Suggestions



This chili is loaded with ground sirloin, fresh peppers, and chunks of fresh plum tomatoes just a little heat.


We love it topped with two or three different shredded cheeses and a dollop of sour cream.


Most of the times we crumble some tortilla chips on top.


It's the garnishes that make it all dressed up to the nines!


You can even add sliced black olives chopped tomatoes, onion, jalapeno peppers and a dash of tabasco for even more heat.

Simple and Comforting



If you want an easy bowl of chili with no frills, this is it.


You can tweak it the way your family likes, add hot peppers, add more or fewer vegetables in it, add onions, leave out celery.


We like it this way, the best part is all the melted cheese on top with crushed tortilla chip for me, but hey, it's old-style chili
