1 cooked corn on the cob, sliced off (or ½ can corn drained)
1 14.5oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 14.5oz can kidney or cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
3 tbl brown sugar
1 can of stewed tomatoes, cut up (I use a sharp knife in the can)
1 can of diced tomatoes
1 lb of 94% lean ground beef
A pinch of red chili flakes, more as desired
1-2 tbl Chili powder, more as desired. Watch the color and taste
½ tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Black pepper, more as desired
*optional* Shredded cheese or other garnishments
In a 5 quart saucepan brown ground beef. Add and simmer tomatoes for 20 minutes. Add seasonings and sugar. Add corn and beans once the seasonings are where you prefer (adding more sugar or chili powder as you wish).
Garnish with cheese. I served with a bag of corn scoops.
Serves 6+ adults. Cost apx $8 = 1.32 a person (plus the cost of cheese)
Notes: If you use beef less lean than this I recommend draining it. Also I added no salt, most canned items have salt added (beans and tomatoes).
I baked and filled hollowed potatoes. Also I made chili fries!
