Stew meat chili is easy and delicious and pure comfort food.

Stew Meat Chili

This is my favorite chili recipe. I could make myself sick on this dish with a little sour cream or shredded cheese on top.  I have to make some cornbread muffins to go along with the chili, too.

Stew meat chili can be made in the crock pot or on the stove top.

1 1/2 – 2 pounds stew meat, cut in bite size pieces

2 tablespoons bacon drippings or cooking oil

1 large onion, chopped

1 (10 ounce) can tomatoes with green chilis

2 (1 pound) cans beans (can use chili beans, kidney beans, pinto beans, red beans or even dried beans that are cooked)

1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1/2 cup water

1 package Lipton onion soup mix

1 teaspoon cumin (can use more)

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 to 3 teaspoons chili powder, more or less

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon salt

Pinch cayenne or a few drops hot sauce, Optional

Shredded cheese or sour cream for topping, Optional

Cut stew meat in bite-sized pieces and brown in bacon drippings or oil on top of the stove.  Mix the rest of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl.  Add stew meat to crock pot and pour remaining ingredients over the meat.  Cook on low for 7 hours or high about 4 hours.  Makes a three quart crock pot full.  Enjoy!

Chili Tips:  Adding a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar to your cooked pot of chili will bring out the flavor and add a slight tang.  Toppings such as shredded cheese, chopped green onions, sour cream, chopped green chilies and chopped cilantro for guests to add make a delicious addition.
