Cold weather. Snow. Temperatures in single digits. That’s been our weather in Ohio lately. Those factors all added together make me crave chili. I want a big Crock Pot of hot, steamy, thick, chili. This recipe only makes a smallish batch, but it’s super easy and you can whip it up any day!
Do you love thick, spicy, hot, and hearty chili? I sure do! It’s one of my favorite winter foods. I have a whole collection of chili recipes and even a cookbook or two dedicated to the topic.
But, guess what… all those recipes call for beans. Now, I like beans in my chili. But my husband does not. That leaves me with three options.
1. Eat all the chili myself. – not a good idea.
2. Cross chili off the menu altogether. – not a good idea.
3. Make a chili with out beans. -it can be done.
If you love this recipe and want to save it for later, pin it to your Pinterest account.
Add some hot peppers – banana or jalapeno. Change up the spice level of your salsa to medium or high. Toss in some mushrooms. Use bits of round steak instead of ground beef.
For those who don’t know what hominy is …
Hominy is a type of corn soaked in an alkali solution. The solution removes the hull and germ of the corn. What’s left is the grain and that puffs up like a larger than normal size. I buy it in the canned food aisle of my local grocery.
Make It a Meal:
Serve with biscuits or cornbread, top with sour cream or shredded cheese.
