How to Make My Sister Elli's 20 minute chili


  1. Ellie's 20 Minute Chili

    This won a chili cookoff much to the dismay of the other entrants who cooked all day long. Tee Hee!
    2T olive oil, 2 Lg. onions chopped, 2 cloves garlic minced,2 lbs. lean ground chuck, 1-28 oz can crushed tomatoes, 2-15 oz. cans kidney beans drained, 2T chili powder, 1T sweet paprIka,2t crumbled oregano, salt. Heat oil in large skillet, Saute onions and garlic till golden. Add ground chuck and cook over high heat till meat is brown and crumbly, Add tomatoes. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes stirring occasionally. Stir In remaining ingredients. Simmer another 10 minutes. Better made the day before, I serve this with guacamole, chopped onions, grated cheese, sour cream, corn chips and salsa. That way everyone gets to fix their chili how they want. This used to be a super bowl staple at our house. Don’t be afraid to double or triple this recipe. Also if you like the 5 alarm style chili, add some adobo powder or cayenne to taste. Add a cup or so of frozen corn, ala Mrs. Sanchez.
