Finding a  Chili

At  first I wasn’t sure what kind of chili I wanted to make since I had a number of the usual suspects already on the blog.  Then  I noticed a photo somewhere on a larger corporate site for a bbq type chili topped with Fritos and I was intrigued.  I have seen bbq huts here and there that will  serve chili on their menu.

So  I thought I might give it a try using a frozen bbq beef mix and doctoring it up  with ranch style beans and lots of seasonings. This is not any Texas type chili, nor is it anything  you might find in an ICS cookoff, but as far as something a family might enjoy, it works. Especially with the cheese topper and the Fritos.

  1. And there you go….a filling, delicious chili in only half an hour. I have never tried those prepackaged beef briskets from Kroger but I can see that it would be a great thing to have in the freezer, especially since this chili sounds so good.

    • Somehow when I imagined it I thought it was in the deli case near the bacon- I had looked it up on the app. But it turns out it was frozen, but I bought it anyway. I have bought their precooked pork belly and liked that (and that is near the bacon) plus they have a few other things. Sometimes it’s fun to make up something quick and easy.

  2. Ranch Style Beans? I’m going to have to check those out the next time I’m in the canned bean aisle!!!
