    Fortunately for me, my mom saw the value in a quick dinner, so this comes easy to me.

    I personally was never a big chili fan until a few years ago – until I found the perfect  mix of seasoning, beef, beans, creme fraiche {or sour cream}, fresh shredded cheddar and chips to make it the perfect fall or winter dinner.

    This easy chili is also customizable! If you prefer your chili with a soup consistency, just add a 12 ounce bottle of beer. The hoppier, the better, like an IPA.

    I also highly recommending taking a minute or two to freshly shred your cheddar cheese. It makes all the difference in the world because shredded cheddar tends to be dry and doesn’t melt as well. This makes it rich and creamy!

    Ingredients

    • 1 lb ground beef
    • 1 tsp red pepper
    • 1 Tbsp dried onion
    • 1 can Mexican chili beans
    • water or beer
    • 4 oz cheddar cheese
    • sour cream crema or creme fraiche
    • chips

    Instructions

    1. In a skillet, cook ground beef over medium high heat, adding red pepper and dried onion.
    2. When nearly cooked, add chili beans. Continue to stir and reduce to medium low heat. We tend to like ours thicker, but you can add ¼ c water or up to a bottle of hoppy beer if you wish.
    3. While the meat is cooking, shred cheddar {it's so much better than pre-shredded, I promise.}
    4. Top with sour cream, cheese and chips.
