3/4 lb. ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 16 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 16 oz. can dark red kidney beans, drained
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. dried basil
Salt and Pepper
Brown ground beef with onion, pepper and garlic in a large soup pot. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for at least 20 minutes...or for as long as you need. Makes 4 main dish servings! Top with cheese, sour cream, green onions, chips or whatever you like! Sarah usually doubles or triples this recipe when she makes it...YUM!
4-5 medium apples, peeled and sliced
2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. oil
dash of salt
1 cup milk (plus a little more)
Get your apples ready and pour some lemon juice over them so they don't brown. Mix the rest of the ingredients together to make a batter. Dip the apples in the batter one at a time and fry in hot oil, turning to brown on all sides. Roll in cinnamon sugar.
These are so good...I am not a big fan of cooked fruit and especially not a big fan of Granny Smith apples but this recipe has both and I loved them. Sarah was even kind enough to fry me up some batter balls without apples cuz hey, who doesn't love a little fried dough now and then...more now! This batter has got to be one of the best frying batters out there! If you make them soon...you know where I live...(hint)...
If you have the Worldwide Ward Cookbook you know how good it is...I really need to get me a copy of it soon...also, you can go to the authors blog at www.worldwidewardcookbook.blogspot.com and submit your recipes...you know I did!!!
