Last night, the teen and I watched a recorded Drive-Ins, Diners & Dives with Guy Fieri. You can not watch that show without drooling and/or racing to your kitchen for something to eat. I made popcorn last night, even though none of the places Guy went to served any. He went to a couple of hamburger joints, though, and I think each of them served some type of chili burger. My son didn’t like chili for the longest time but now he does and so we decided that today should be chili burger day.
I hunted on the Food Network website for a recipe from last night’s recording and didn’t find it, so I winged it.
1.5 pounds of hamburger
1 tbsp. canola oil
1 can of Bush’s Pinto Beans
1 can (10ounces) of Ro-tel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles (I used mild)
1 can (14.5 ounces) of Hunt’s Tomato Sauce
2 tbsp. McCormick Chili Powder
1 tbsp. McCormick Chipotle Seasoning
2 tbsp. McCormick Onion Powder
1 tbsp. McCormick Garlic Powder
1 tbsp. McCormick Ground Cinnamon
1 stick of butter
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
Brown hamburger (in the canola oil) in deep pan. Mine was frozen so it took a bit of stirring and chopping to get it totally browned and cooked thoroughly.Add all of the other ingredients, stirring as you add them. You may want to use MORE or LESS of the seasonings, depending on your family’s tastes. Woo! A whole stick of butter – I saw this on the television show last night – it sounded like a great idea until I saw how BIG the stick of butter looked in the pan. Then I began wondering about heart attacks…..Let the flavors blend and taste again; add salt and pepper. Blend well.Cover with lid and set in hot oven for at least three hours. Time to make the burgers! My hubby hasn’t been feeling well all weekend, so it was just the teenager and me for supper tonight. He wanted two burgers and I wanted one. He ate his too quickly for me to photograph it but here’s mine on the George Foreman Grill:I also toasted the buns like last night.It does not take very long to cook a burger on the grill; maybe a total of four minutes. Pop it on top of the bun:Add the chili and if you want, some shredded cheddar:Oh. My. Gosh.Okay, I tried to be ladylike and nice and neat and sliced my first bite with a fork and knife.My son laughed at me and said that I had to pick it up to eat it, so I did.Mmmmmmmmmmmm! Heavenly!
