Dear Comfort Food,
I have missed you all summer. I am so glad that you are coming back now that the weather is looking like it may be cooling off. I certainly don’t need you…but I sure do love you. Can you show up from time to time this Fall and Winter? I would really appreciate it. And here is one of my favorite recipes…while we are on the subject!
Sincerely {and thankfully},

::Mama Morse’s Chili Cook-Off 1st Prize Winning Chili::

    • 2 lb. ground beef {or turkey}
    • 1 clove garlic (grated or minced) {or more if you like garlic}
    • 1 large onion (chopped)
    • ½ tsp. salt
    • 2-3 Tbsp. chili powder
    • ¼ tsp. red pepper (cayenne)
    • dash cloves
    • 2 cans kidney beans w/ liquid (16 oz. cans)
    • ¼ tsp. black pepper
    • 1 tsp. paprika
    • 1 tsp. dried basil
    •  4 cups tomato juice (look for this in the juice aisle at the store…not with the canned tomatoes)
    • 1 can crushed tomatoes
Brown the meat w/ the garlic & onion. Add all ingredients to slow cooker or large pot {adjusting seasoning to taste}. Simmer for at least 30 minutes & serve! For a variety you can add some spicy cayenne pepper. Or for some smokey heat include some chili’s in adobo sauce.
*optional toppings: cheese, sour cream, corn chips, green onions, cilantro*

 By the way, my mom really did win 1st prize at the annual church Chili Cook-Off one year with this bad boy!
