Our Jr. High paired up with the High school youth group every Sunday evening to have dinner together and play games before the Bible study portion of our meetings.
Part of my job as a leader was to prepare the meal for the group about every other Sunday.
I'm SOOOO bad at ideas! So, I frequently relied on my friend Shawna to come up with ideas for me. Thank you O, Queen of Easy Meals!!
One of the ideas she came up with was chili frito pies...only, she excepted ME to make the chili.
I don't make chili.
At least, I didn't until that week at youth group! And, I'm totally counting that as my 5th first, even if I don't have a picture to prove I did it.
Here's Shawna's recipe. It was yummy, but a bit spicy for my tastes, but that can definitely be adjusted.
3 cans diced tomatoes (last time I bought petite dice from kroger, they were yummy)
2 cans beans, drained and rinsed
1 can tomato paste
1 onion, diced
1 t salt
2 T garlic and black pepper
3 T chili powder
1 ranch dressing pkt (there is a kroger brand that is good)
2 c cooked ground beef
Place all in a crockpot, cook on low 6-8 hrs, or high for 4hrs.
