Easy Chili


Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a great hump day! I have been pretty productive today. Bobby and I got up and ran 4 miles, our last run before the half. We were scheduled to do 5, and I even had my alarm set…but..you can’t hear your alarm if your phone is on silent now can you? We were running late so we just did 4 miles then went to the chiropractor, cleaned out more stuff at Bobby’s dad’s ate lunch, and now we are waiting for the AT&T guy to come because our internet is acting up. Don’t you love how they give you those windows of time…”Someone will be there between 1-5.” Not cool! We have to go BACK to the chiropractor later and then dinner with friends.


Ok, here is the easy chili recipe I promised. I kind of made it up, so you can change things to your liking. I think it came out good! This amount was enough for 4 large bowls.


-1 .5 pounds meat (we used ground sirloin)

-1 can Busch’s beans in chili sauce

-3 tsp of chili powder

-1/4 of an onion chopped up (I am not a huge onion fan)

-1 small can of tomato sauce (like the little mini cans)

-water (I used two cans worth of the beans can)



-chop up onion

-brown meat, then add onion

-drain excess fat

-put into a pot with rest of ingredients, simmer for 45 minutes (the longer the better)


We served ours with crushed multigrain tortilla chips and cheese on top. and served with bread. It was great for the cold weather we had for a couple of days!



Have a great afternoon everyone! The next two weeks are really busy for us, so hang on for the ride!!!

    You’ll do great in the half. I know how you feel about busy. I am swamped until my marathon next weekend!

    I’ve never had chili since I don’t eat red meat. I should try a veggie option though. My favorite food for cold weather is hot chocolate 🙂

  4. Yum! I love eating chili, stew, and hearty soups in the fall. Especially w/grated cheese sprinkled on top!

  5. We had chili tonight! My recipe is similar to yours. We had cornbread muffins on the side.

    My favorite cold weather food is chicken and dumplings. Yum!

    The alarm on my iPhone sounds even with the phone silenced. And we had chili for dinner tonight too, with cheese bread (GF). Sorry about your internet – that’s an absolutely vital service to have!!
