How to Make Home Made Chili


  1. brown the ground meat in a big pot {I make alot so I usually use the big dutch oven kind of pot.} after the meat is browned, add the chili mix and mix well into the meat, then add the tomatoes, kidney beans,and beer. Bring to a soft boil, stir periodically. Let this simmer for about 4 hours.
    meanwhile cook the creamettes asccording to package, chop up a large onion, the chili is done when its not watery. We usually put the creamettes in bottom of bowl then chili, onion, cheese, corn chips, {if you wish}.
