My daughter received a cookbook for Christmas a few years ago. Every time the weather starts to turn cold my daughter whips up this chili and I can't get enough of it!

    shredded cheddar cheese

How to Make My Daughter's Awesome Chili


  1. Empty beans into a colander, rinse under cold water, drain and set aside.
  2. If using whole tomatoes use scissors to cut them in the can. Put tomatoes, green pepper, onion, tomato juice and chili powder in a saucepan. Stir with a wooden spoon.
  3. On medium-high heat bring tomato mixture to a boil. Turn heat to low. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add drained beans and undrained chili beans. Stir with a wooden spoon. Cover and cook for 10 minutes or more until heated through.
  5. Serve with sprinkled cheese on top.
  6. *Note: If you like meaty chili cook 8 ounces ground beef or turkey in a skillet. Drain fat and stir into the chili along with the beans.
