Lazy Day Chili

I am so sorry for the lack of blogging!  We have been so busy lately getting ready for Christmas and I've been looking for a new job...which I'll tell you is a full time job in itself...exhausting!  I haven't been cooking very much since I've been in a bit of a funk getting frustrated with the job hunt and whatnot.

I also decided to change my blog name to Chelsea's Culinary Indulgence.  I hope you enjoy!

Over the weekend we spent all of Sunday decorating for Christmas and putting up our lights and tree which was a blast.  Due to the gloomy weather I decided it was a perfect day to make my Lazy Day Chilly.  This chili is so easy to make you will love it!

Makes about 4 servings

1 lb. ground beef
2 large onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and finely chopped (if you like your chili extra spicy you can throw in some seeds)
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 large can of stewed tomatoes
3 cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Cheddar cheese, sour cream, and chopped red onion for toppings


In Dutch oven brown beef over medium heat.  

Add onions, garlic, and peppers and cook about 5 minutes.   

Add chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper to taste and cook about 1 minute.  Add canned tomatoes and about 1 cup of water, stir and bring to a boil.   

Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 10 minutes. Add the beans, stir, and return to a simmer.

Cook about 30 minutes to an hour (the longer the better).  Remove from the heat, pour into bowls, and top with your favorite toppings.
