MommySecrets

Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Freezer Meals - Super Simple Chili

Monica at The Homespun Heart has inspired me to share some of the recipes I like to double and freeze for later. Today I'm tripling this super-easy chili recipe to share with my family this week.

My mom was moved out of ICU this morning, and she's in a regular hospital room healing from surgery. This will be great comfort food for my Dad and siblings who have been caring so well for her.


Super Simple Chili
2 pounds ground beef
1 (8 ounce) jar salsa
4 tablespoons chili seasoning mix
1 (15 ounce) can light red kidney beans, drained
1 (15 ounce) can dark red kidney beans, drained
1 (15 ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (15 ounce) can corn

1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute ground beef until browned. Drain grease, if desired.
2. Add the other ingredients. Mix well, reduce heat to low and simmer for at least an hour.
3. Serve with cheese, fritos, sour cream or whatever toppings you enjoy.
