After dividing up the beef into 3 freezer bags, take one bag and add:
1 can chili beans
1 can tomato paste
1 can petite diced tomatoes, undrained
1.5 cups water
1 pkt (1.48 oz) of chili seasoning mix
When you are ready to eat
Microwave the packet on DEFROST (30% power) for 8-10 minutes or until softened. Pour into skillet and simmer over medium heat.
Finish and Serve:
- Spoon bowls into chili
- top with shredded cheddar cheese, sliced green onions, or sour cream
(note from Heather)For an interesting variation, serve on top of chips and top with the above plus pecans and shredded coconut...it sound weird but its quite good!
