One of my favorite non-pasta recipes: chili.
Sun Sep 2, 2018 11:11pm

This is a non-spicy chili, because I'm a wuss, but you can always add cayenne or whatever to taste.

1) Brown and drain:

1 pound (16 oz) hamburger [called mince in the UK?]
1 onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste

2) Add:

2 16-oz cans diced tomato (or 1 plus 1 can tomato sauce [I prefer this way])
2 16-oz cans kidney beans (1 dark, 1 Mexican [a.k.a. chili beans]), rinsed and drained
1 16-oz can crisp and sweet corn, drained (or about 1.5 to 2 cups/12 oz frozen)
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 Tablespoon brown sugar

3) Simmer 1/2 hour on the stove or heat 4 hours in a crock pot

4) Serve with sharp cheddar cheese (or whatever you like) on top.

One recipe is good for about four servings. If you have a big pot, you can double it and freeze extra portions for later.

          You don't just crack an egg over your ramen while it's cooking? And hey, if you're feeling really fancy, nuy some pre-cooked chicken and tear it up into chunks and put that in the ramen too.
          • Pffffthahaha, 'egg'.Huinesoron, Mon Sep 3 11:19am
            That sounds like an ingredient. Don't you know that's a dirty word? hS still remembers someone managing to set off the fire alarms by burning pasta in his first year at uni

      If you want to do this, you'll probably have to order capellini rather than capelli d'angelo. The latter is a bit more of a niche product here, and either way up you'll need to get it from online... more
