Delicious Dinner!

I made an easy and tasty dinner tonight. I have a knock-off recipe for Wendy's chili. I think it actually tastes better than the restaurant's chili. It makes 12 cups, so you can have leftovers on a plain baked potato the next day.

"Wendy's" Chili

2 pounds of extra lean ground beef

2 (15 oz) cans tomato sauce

2 (15 oz) cans kidney beans with liquid

2 (15 oz) cans pinto beans with liquid

1 cup diced onion

4 oz can diced green chilies

1/4 cup diced celery

3 medium tomatoes, chopped

2 teaspoons cumin

3 tablespoons chili powder

1-1/2 teaspoons black pepper

2 teaspoons salt

2 cups of water

Brown the beef and drain. Add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer over a medium-low heat for 2 to 3 hours, stirring occasionally. One cup is worth 4 Weight Watchers Points.

I made some beer bread to go along with the chili. It is an easy bread to make and delicious. The bread will take on the flavor of the beer you use, so use your favorite! Delicious with butter or plain. I got this recipe from my mother-in-law. Thanks Jane.

Beer Bread

3 cups of self-rising flour

3 tablespoons sugar

12 oz warm beer of choice

Mix all ingredients and put into a greased loaf pan. Bake @ 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes. If cut into 10 servings, each serving is worth 3 Weight Watchers Points.
