Chili makes a wonderful meal in the cold weather seasons and this is a great recipe a friend shared with me. This chili is spicy, but not too spicy…just spicy enough to have a little kick! I switched it up just a little by adding some different seasonings and a few other ingredients. That’s one nice thing about chili—it’s so easy to change it up and make it just the way you like it!Continue reading

Tailgating season is in full swing and I wanted to share a game day spread I put together, along with two tasty recipes I came up with using Krusteaz® cornbread mixes (thanks to Krusteaz® for providing the “game day” spread ingredients and supplies!). The photo above shows the Cornbread Sausage Balls and the photo below shows the Cheesy Chili-Cornbread Bake. The two mixes I used were Krusteaz® Honey Cornbread and a great new flavor, Fire Roasted Cornbread.Continue reading

Chili makes a great meal on chilly days like today! So I thought it would be the perfect time to share this recipe for Three-Bean Veggie Chili. A friend of mine told me she makes veggie chili by substituting three cans of different kinds of beans for the meat in a regular chili recipe. That sounded pretty good to me, so I looked up a variety of chili recipes and created a veggie chili recipe of my own.Continue reading
Spaghetti is a favorite dish of mine, and so is chili. I never seem to get tired of them. So of course when I came across a recipe for Chilighetti, I had to try it out!
I really liked that the original recipe was made all in one pot. I did make some changes, though–instead of using tomato juice as part of the sauce, I used a combination of tomato sauce and pasta sauce to thicken it up. And I used beef broth instead of water for a more beefy flavor.
I ended up with this nice, saucy spaghetti dish. When serving, be sure to top the Chilighetti with sour cream and cheddar cheese–you’ll have a wonderful comfort-food meal!
CHILIGHETTI by NancyC, adapted from Taste of Home
Makes 8 servings
- 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 (24-ounce) jar chunky pasta sauce
- 1 (15-ounce) can and 1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 1/3 cups beef broth
- 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 4 teaspoons chili powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
- 1 (1 lb.) package spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces
- 2 (15.5-ounce) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
- Sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese, for garnish
In a large (6-quart) stockpot, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat for 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink and onion is tender, breaking beef up into crumbles; drain excess grease.
Stir in pasta sauce, tomato sauce, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and seasonings; bring to a boil. Add spaghetti, then reduce heat, cover pot, and simmer for 12 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Stir in beans and heat a few more minutes, until everything is heated through (if the mixture is too thick for your liking, add in a little more beef broth or water).
Serve in bowls or on plates, and top each serving with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
This is definitely a filling meal–especially when you serve it with a salad and some crusty bread or rolls. Are you a fan of chili and spaghetti, too?
