Chili is the perfect winter warm-up meal, right?! This is the best we have ever eaten and we aren’t missing the beans at all! This dish is also perfect for game day gatherings. A one pot, easy meal that can easily feed a crowd. It’s thick, chunky and loaded with rich flavor certain to please the entire family.
Seriously, there won’t be many steps in this post. One pot, brown the meat and onions, add in the garlic and other spices.
1 lb ground beef (you can also use ground turkey or ground chicken)
1 medium yellow onion, diced
5 cloves garlic, minced
1- 6 oz can tomato paste
1- 14.5 can diced tomatoes
4 tbsp Chili Powder
2 tbsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Onion Powder
1 tbsp Cumin
2 tbsp smoked Paprika
salt and pepper
1 cup water
Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and add ground beef and cook until brown. Once browned, add diced onion and garlic and mix in with ground beef until fragrant. Add all spices and stir to combine. Cook for 1 minute until seasonings have coated the beef. Then, add tomato sauce and stir for another minute. Add diced tomato with juices, then fill the can with water and add to pot. Turn heat down to low and let simmer for 20 minutes.
Cheesy Garlic Chaffles:
*This recipe will make 2 regular sized Chaffles*
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 tbsp parmesan cheese
3 tsp coconut flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
pinch of salt
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 tsp basil seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Heat and lightly grease waffle iron (or you can purchase this adorable mini waffle maker available on Amazon )
Combine first 7 ingredients in a medium bowl and stir well to combine.
Spoon half of the batter into the waffle maker and close. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove the chaffle bread carefully from the iron, then repeat for the rest of the batter.
In a small bowl, melt the butter and add garlic powder. Cut each chaffle in half (or fourths) and place on a baking sheet, then brush the tops with the garlic butter mixture.
Top with mozzarella cheese and pop in the oven for 4 -5 minutes.
Turn oven to broil and move baking pan to the top shelf for 1-2 minutes so that the cheese begins to bubble and turn golden brown. Watch VERY carefully, as it can burn quickly on broil. (I check every 30 seconds)
Remove from oven and sprinkle basil seasoning on top.
