The Weather Outside is Frightful

...frightfully HOT that is!! So why is it that I've been craving chili? And why is it that when I ask Mark what he wants for dinner it's -- CHILI? Isn't this winter food? Of course it is but given the fact that we haven't a proper winter in a few years -- why wait for something that may or may not happen.

Sorry - no measurements again.


1 lb. ground beef
1 lb. ground pork
1 onion chopped

Cook together until meat is done. Add -

1 large can of crushed tomato
1 15 oz can of fire roasted diced tomato
1 can of medium chili beans
2 pkgs of chili seasoning mix
some garlic powder
some chili powder
crushed red pepper flakes
some sugar
some crystals hot sauce
Let this all bubble away on the stove until the flavors marry. Add more chili powder and hot sauce as it's needed.
