Chili with Ground Beef and Vegetables.

Cooler weather brings out my soup pots.  I love homemade soups of all kinds and find that making a big batch of soup and some fresh bread quickly brings my family to the table!  This recipe is for a simple chili, made with a combination of fresh and canned ingredients. When using canned ingredients, it's important to pay attention to quality; I use the most whole canned ingredients I can find, with the fewest bonus ingredients possible.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 6 stalks celery, sliced crosswise
  • 1 can cannellini beans
  • 1 can light red kidney beans
  • 2 can diced tomatoes
  • dried seasonings: garlic powder, oregano, chili powder, parsley
Brown ground beef (or turkey) in dutch oven or large soup pot.  Add onion and celery and cook until tender.  Stir in beans and tomatoes. Season to taste. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.  Enjoy with crusty bread and fresh fruit.
