Organic Chili

Tonight was very busy for me so I had to make something quick and easy.  One daughter to the dentist and the other to basketball practice.  Of course right around the same time.  Life wouldn't want to hand me a easy day would it? Nope. So tonight I went low key and decided on chili.

Organic Chili

1/2 lb Natural Ground Beef $1.75 (only $3.49 per lb)
5 Mason Jars of Organic Pinto Beans $1.99 (about 5 cups beans)
1/2 cup  Organic Bell Peppers .50 cents (bought on sale & froze)
4 tbsp Chili Powder
1tbsp Cumin
1 Garlic Clove grated
Salt to taste

Total=$4.24
That's 70 cents per person!

I didn't factor in the spices because frankly I couldn't remember how much I paid for them. They are something that we always have on hand.

I added one teaspoon of sour cream, tobasco sauce and some sauerkraut. Tasted like a chili dog! Yummy!

This looks great, I'll have to soak some beans tonight for tomorrow's dinner!

Suppose I'll make taco soup tonight.
