Chili Bean Soup with Frito's

IIt was so much fun making the first batch of my chili with Hanna and Amani on this cold and windy fall day....Cooking with my girls...Hanna and Amani.Their favorite part about eating chili is the FRITO'S chips on top! YUMMY!

Ingredients needed:

1 lb. ground lamb
1 large can of diced tomatoes
4 cups water
1 cup kidney beans
1 cup pinto beans
2 TBSP beef or chicken base
3 crushed cloves of garlic
4 TBSP chili powder
2 TBSP cumin
2 TBSP paprika
2 TBSP black pepper
2 TBSP white pepper
3 salt (don't be shy with the salt)
2 TBSP crushed red peppers
1/4 CUP olive oil
2 Bay leaves
1 tsp Accent
1/4 cup small diced onion
1/4 cup small diced celery

First, heat a pot on MED-HIGH with E.V.O.O. Add the celery, onions and garlic and sauté until tender. Then, add and brown 1 lb of ground lamb , and of course you can use your choice of beef or chicken. Then, add chili powder, cumin, black pepper, white pepper, salt (don't be shy with the salt) crushed red peppers, paprika, olive oil, and of course my secret ingredient for EVERYTHING Accent! Combine all together. Then, drain the fat/grease from the meat. Next, add the large can of diced tomatoes, kidney beans, navy beans, bay leaves, 4 cups of water and the beef base.

Next, Bring to a boil and then let it simmer for 45-60 mins (the longer it simmers the thicker and heartier it will get.) Make sure you skim the grease/ impurities of the top as it's cooking.

Pour into a Bowl add little of sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, small diced onions and Frito's chips atop and of course a sprinkle of chopped parsley! ENJOY!

Hope you Enjoy making it and chowing down as much as we did!!
