I made this tasty chili with a partial can of beans and used the remaining beans to make Pasta Fagioli Soup. I'll post that one next! :)
Chili Con Carne
1 c. cooked ground beef, drained
1 ½ cups spicy V8 juice
1/2 cup kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon minced garlic
2 to 3 drops hot pepper sauce
Thinly sliced green onions for garnish, optional
In a large saucepan, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Garnish with green onion if desired.
