I’m a chili kind of gal. I love all chili, lentil chili, chili pasta, chili dogs, reheated chili from the day before…I think you get my drift.
Tonight was one of those nights where I had no clue what I should make for dinner. I wanted to try something different yet curb my chili craving. I browsed through Pinterest but couldn’t find anything that worked with what I had in my kitchen. I mean, I did just go to the grocery store yesterday and yet where the hell are all my groceries?
The older I get the more I tend to just whip up randomness and hope from the best. Tonight was one of those nights. I had some good staples on hand, potatoes, hamburger, chili beans, onions, & peppers. I can work with this.
Hash & Chill
- 4 Yukon potatoes
- 1/2 tbsp chili powder
- Tsp garlic powder
- Tbsp olive oil
- 1/2 onion
- 1/2 bell pepper - red if you’d like a pop of color
- Tsp of diced garlic
- 1/2 tbsp olive oil
- 1lb hamburger
- 1 can chili beans
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Herbs to garnish
- Shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 450. Dice up your potatoes. Throw them in a mixing bowl, mix in your chili powder, garlic powder and olive oil. Toss until potatoes are coated. Place on a greased sheet (I personally love the spray avocado oil from Costco). Bake for roughly 35 minutes.
Dice up your onion and pepper. Toss in your frying pan with your garlic and olive oil and sauté. Once you have them slightly less crunchy, add in your hamburger. Cook and drain grease. Add in chili beans. Season with salt and pepper. Add cooked potatoes once done.
Garnish with herbs of your choice. I have a jar of basil, cilantro & parsley that I have on hand from my tower gardening adventures.
I try to stay away from dairy, so I didn’t add cheese to my dish, but you can definitely add some when ready to serve. Like my hubby did.
Now dish up and enjoy. I chowed down on my bowl full outside, with a hard cider & listening to my husband break the belt on our lawn mower. Followed by a soothing sound of choice words echoing through our woods.
