I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

BBQ Chili Con Carne

Cool days, cold nights.  Time for some Fall comfort food.

2 tbsps vegetable oil
1 lb ground beef
2 cups chopped onion
2 tbsps minced garlic
1 tsp finely chopped jalapeno
1 cup canned tomatoes
3 tbsps tomato paste
1/4 cup of your favourite BBQ sauce
3 tbsps chili powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
pinch cayenne
2 cups beef broth
2 - 540 ml (19 oz) cans red kidney beans

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet and brown the beef and onions.  When there is nearly no pink left on the beef add garlic and jalapeno.  Continue cooking until the beef is completely cooked.
Add canned tomatoes, tomato paste and BBQ sauce. I like this President's Choice Beer and Chipotle flavour for it's smoky taste.

Lower the heat and add chili powder, salt, pepper, cayenne, beef broth and kidney beans.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover.
Simmer 45-60 minutes.

Serve with a good country bread that'll sop up all the yummy juices.
