Chili for Two
Chili is easy to make for a party, and it tastes great out of the freezer, too. But sometimes, you might be short on fridge space and just want to make a couple of bowls of chili for one night’s dinner. Luckily, it’s not too hard to scale down the recipe to make chili for two.
- ¼ lb ground beef
- ¼ cup chopped onion
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 can chili beans, undrained
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1.5 tsp chili powder
- 1.5 tsp ground cumin
- Cook the beef and onion over medium heat in a saucepan. When the beef is no longer pink, add the garlic and cook it for about a minute.
- Drain the fat from the pan, then set it back over the heat. Add the spices, beans, and tomatoes, and bring the mixture to a boil.
- Reduce the heat, cover the pot, and let it simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. If the chili seems too watery, cook it for a few more minutes uncovered until it’s the texture you like.
