Warm-Me-Up Chili

It is wintertime in Indiana and that means it is COLD! As in wear three layers of clothing, coveralls, and your best wool socks kind of cold.  I'm thankful that my hubby (and our farm staff) are willing to work outside in single (and negative) degree temperatures.  On Monday, I decided it was a perfect day for chili and cornbread, in an effort to warm everybody up!

2 TBSP of chili seasoning (recipe below)
1 lb ground beef (or other ground meat/poultry of your choosing); browned (drained if needed)
2 cans of kidney beans
2 c tomato juice
1 c uncooked macaroni noodles (optional)
salt,  to taste

Combine all ingredients in a stockpot; bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes.  Serve with crackers, cornbread, or grilled cheese and enjoy!

Chili seasoning: 4 tsp chili powder, 2 tsp cayenne pepper, 1 TBSP onion powder, 1 TBSP garlic powder, 2 tsp sugar, 2 tsp cumin, 2 tsp dried parsley, 3 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper

Mix together well; store in an air-tight container.  Use 2 TBSP per 1 pound of meat
