When I think of “cowboy food,” I think of simple, hearty, and bold ingredients…plus beef and pinto beans! This chili definitely meets that criteria. 🙂
Borning and leave simmering in the Crock Pot all day long. But let’s be real: there are plenty of days when I’m just not that organized. Instead, I’m scrounging around at the last minute to try to figure out what I can feed my family (with the food that I have in my house).
Aunt Bee’s chili recipe is perfect for those last-minute rushed evenings because it uses just a few very basic kitchen staples and it comes together in about 30 minutes.
How To Serve Your Cowboy Chili
My kids like it served over elbow macaroni, but I also think it’s great on its own topped with some Fritos or served with a side of skillet cornbread (there’s nothing wrong with a boxed mix!).
Here are some extra topping you might also like;
- Sour cream
- Cheddar cheese
- Cooked bacon
- Serve with salad
File this one away…you just might need it SOON!
