BBQ Bean Chili

Don’t you love those days when you haven’t made it to the grocery store yet and your inventory is running kinda low.  You go to the pantry to see what you have the ingredients to make and of course you need 1-2 more ingredients to make ANYTHING that you normally fix.  Although, some may see this as a perfect excuse to get creative and wing it.  For some reason *cough cough*, this happens to us a lot (ok, the real reason is ….I hate strongly dislike grocery shopping)

BBQ Bean Chili (no, it isn’t your imagination, you DO see the word BBQ on my blog a lot)

For frying beef:

Add all above ingredients to a deep skillet or other large pot and cook on medium heat until meat is thoroughly cooked, lightly drain and return to skillet or pot. (if you aren’t eating clean grass fed meat, drain completely)

 For the rest:

Add second list of ingredients, stir until combined, cover and simmer on low for 1 hour stirring occasionally
