I usually made chili with diced tomatoes, and my husband can’t stand them. But yet likes pasta sauce. He shows more reaction than I’ve ever seen when it has a kick to it, but my kids and I can’t eat stuff to spicy. So instead of going gray trying to please everyone I did an experiment last night to meet in the middle and everyone loved it, including finding a copy cat recipe for those awesome rolls from Red Lobster. I couldn’t get over how close it was to tasting the same….The family gave the thumbs up and there were no leftovers just a remark from my husband, “Your gonna post this on your blog right?” LOL.
2 pounds of hamburger
2 cans (16 oz each) of kidney beans
1 can (29 oz) of Tomato Puree
1 jar (16 oz) Southwest Style Salsa (Sounds crazy I know but it yummy!)
1/2 onion chopped up
Chili powder (amount to your preference)
Spices (I used oregano, basil, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt)
and a little shredded cheese on top
1. Brown hamburger in a skillet, and add onions. Then Drain.
2. Add everything to a large pot and heat on low. Add kidney beans, Pasta sauce, Tomato Puree, and Salsa. Then add Chili powder and spices.
3. Cook on low the first half hour, then to medium and stir often for another 15 minutes.
The recipe for those awesome Red Lobster biscuit’s I got from a great blog called “The Girl That Ate Everything”
She has some awesome ideas I wouldn’t mind trying out myself. But for the cheddar biscuits click here,
it will take you right to the recipe. But before you get the recipe here is a picture how mine turned out and totally yummy!!
