I found this recipe from http://www.famouschilirecipes.com/Halftime.html
This is the perfect chili dish to serve at your next halftime get together. Serve with grated cheese and tortilla chips for dipping. For a more healthy chili, get a leaner ground beef and use lowfat cheeses for toppings.
- 3 Tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
- 8 large garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 pounds ground chuck
- 1 envelope taco seasoning or 1/4 cup taco seasoning
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 15oz can tomato sauce
- 3 cups chicken broth or vegetable broth
- 1 6oz can tomato paste
- 2 15 to 16oz cans of kidney beans (drained)
Heat oil in heavy saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic. Saute about 8 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add chuck and cook until brown, breaking up meat with a spatula as it cooks. Add taco seasoning, basil, oregano, and thyme. Stir 2 minutes. Mix in tomato sauce, chicken broth and tomato paste. Simmer until thickened to desired consistency, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, about 1 and a half hours. Mix in beans. Simmer for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Refrigerate until cold then reheat over low when ready to serve.
