What food comes to mind when you think of cold weather? Being from Texas for me it is Chili. Nothing sounds better on a cold day, or when it is snowing out than Chili. Growing up I loved eating Chili Stuff Over Fritos that my mom, and my grandma made. My Mom & Grandma got the recipe from Aunt Pat, and always called it Pat’s Stuff. My mom is a great cook, and this was one of her recipes I had to learn to make. Just mix a bunch of ingredients together, and Viola! Seriously what take the longest time is browning the hamburger meat. It is so quick and easy to make
- 1 lb Hamburger Meat
- 1/4 pkg Williams chili mix, or more if you would like spicier
- 1 can Rotel
- ¼ cup Water
- 1 can Ranch Style Beans with Sweet Onions
- ½ lb Velveeta Cheese
- 1 cup Milk
- 1 bag Fritos
- Brown hamburger meat.
- Combine all ingredients in a pot on stove, and heat until cheese is melted.
- Once cheese is melted it is ready to serve.
- Serve over Fritos.
Now in my pictures you can see this time I made Chili Stuff Over Fritos on the stove.
Sometimes instead of using the stove I use a crock-pot. Just brown the meat the night before then in the morning I dump all the ingredients in the crock-pot before I leave for work, and when I come home the house smells good & dinner is ready.
One of the best kitchen utensils I have bought are my OXO Angled Measuring Cups. These cups are great because you don’t have to look on the side of the cup to see the measurements they show you the measurements on the inside. Bought mine at Bed Bath & Beyond and they were only $19.95 for a 3 piece set that included 4 cup, 2 cup, and 1 cup. The cups are also sold individually. These come in very handy when making Chili Stuff Over Fritos to help measure the milk and water.
Chili Stuff Over Fritos is definitely one of my go to recipes during the winter.
