Chili Con Carne

Tonight’s supper was chili con carne, with cheddar cheese cornbread and a green salad.

Chili Con Carne

3 large garlic cloves, sliced
1 cup chopped onions
2 tbsp bacon grease
1 pound ground pork
1 pound stewing beef cubes
1 large can peeled tomatoes
1/2 small can tomato paste
2 tsp salt
1/4 cup chili powder
2 tsp oregano
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Dried chili flakes if you like your chili spicy (I added chili flakes after I tasted it about an hour before I thought it would be done.)

Saute the garlic an onion in the shortening until wilted. Brown the meat in the same pot. Add all the ingredients and simmer until the beef cubes are tender.


I just put everything in a crockpot and set it on high for about 6 hours.

You are welcome anytime.
