This dish was entirely made in my electric skillet.
I know everyone has their own version of chili con carne and opinions on what should or shouldn’t be in it, so this is my version!
2 lbs ground beef
4 strips thick cut bacon, I used applewood smoked
1 small can tomato paste
a medium sized can fire roasted tomatoes
cup of ketchup
medium sized can Lima beans
medium sized can black beans
medium sized can dark red kidney beans
2 bell peppers; I used one green and one yellow
3 cloves garlic
6 chili powder
red pepper flakes
Mrs Dash garlic and herbs
cup of water
2 pouches Uncle Ben’s jasmine Ready Rice
First I sliced up the bacon strips in smaller strips and fried those half way done in the skillet, then added the ground beef and browned it until it was close to being done. Then I added the garlic, bell peppers and onion diced.
Once that had cooked for a few minutes I added the spices: 6 chili powder, cumin, red pepper flakes to taste, Mrs Dash and paprika. Add the cans of beans, tomato paste fire roasted tomatoes, ketchup and water and give it a good stir, then put the lid on the skillet and let simmer for about 10-15 minutes. Add the rice, stir well, turn the heat off and let sit for five minutes, serve and eat! Enjoy!
