Re: IS homemade chili and induction Item?
I am not sure about what is in the chili mix. People here do use Ranch dressing mix so it may be okay. Just in case I am including a recipe for you. I have made this with crushed tomatoes...tomatoes from the garden...and both ways have tasted good. Will give you a tip though...the first time I made this I doubled the recipe...I recommend not doubling the red pepper flakes unless you like it HOT! LOL!
From: Di Bauer
2 pounds ground beef
1 heaping teaspoon minced garlic (about 1 large clove, fresh)
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 14.5-ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1 15-ounce can no sugar added tomato sauce
1 8-ounce can no sugar added roasted garlic tomato sauce
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (or to taste)
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
sour cream (optional)
shredded cheddar cheese (optional)
Brown the ground beef with the garlic and red pepper flakes; drain
thoroughly. Combine the browned meat/spices with all the remaining
ingredients except the sour cream and shredded cheese. Place mixture
in a crockpot and cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours. Serve hot,
garnished with dollops of sour cream and sprinkles of cheddar cheese,
Freezes well for a quick lunch or snack.
