Matthew has been begging for "The Chili" since we got to St. Louis, but the 102 degree weather has been less than ideal. The last couple of days have been "quite cool" (movie quote) and so I busted out the chili along with Katie's rolls receipe.
(This photo shows the tomatoes chopped, don't bother. The food processor is easier and makes it taste better)
1 lb. Ground Beef - cooked and in pieces
1 - 14 oz. can tomato sauce
1 - 14 oz. can kidney beans (with liquid)
1 - 14 oz. can pinto beans (with liquid)
1/2 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green chiles (hatch's canned diced chiles)
2 med. tomatoes, (just toss them into the food processor)
1 tsp. cumin powder
1 Tb. chili powder (I put in about 1/2 Tb. more when making it for just us, we like the kick)
1 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1 cup water
These rolls went perfectly with our meal.
