Courage Chili-Paula Deen
2 pounds lean ground beef (I use turkey)
2 large onions, finely minced (about 2 cups)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1.5 tsp. salt
3 Tbsp. chili powder
1.5 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. sugar
One 10.75 oz. can condensed French onion soup
1 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce
One 28 oz. can chopped tomatoes with juice
Two 16 oz. cans kidney beans, drained (I used pinto beans)
1 large bag of Frito's
1 cup sour cream
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
Brown beef and one & a half cups of onions in large skilet. Drain off pan drippings.
Add garlic powder, salt, chili powder, oregeno, sugar, soup, flour, Tobasco sauce. Mix well.
Simmer 1 hour, covered, stirring occasionally.
Add tomatoes & beans, stir & simmer, covered, for 20 minutes longer.
When the chili is done, empty the bag of Fritos into a large serving bowl, scoop the chili on top of Fritos & top with dollops of sour cream, remaining half cup of onions, and cheddar.
Serves 4-6"When I'm under stress and I sense that trouble's coming, I need to eat something hot, something substantial, and something that gives me what feels like strength and courage. There's nothin' like dippin' into a bowlful of chili in such moments. Chili’s a nourishing rib- sticker; you don't need no fancy food dishes when you need your strength. Y'all need chili.
Note: Some Texans don't like beans with their chili. I do." -Paula Deen
