Apple Chili


I combined two of my fall favorites; fresh from the orchard apples, and a hearty bowl of chili and came up with this recipe I call,
Apple Chili.


If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a picture I posted of some beautiful freshly picked orchard apples.


I actually won a bushel of apples in an auction over the summer and had been waiting patiently for them to be ready so I could go pick them up.


I went with 1/2 bushel of golden delicious and 1/2 bushel of red delicious. 
 Don't know how much is a bushel?...I didn't either.... well it's the size of  two refrigerator drawers :)

 And as you can see we love apples at our house. 
We like to put the Lighthouse apple cider in the freezer for a couple of hours, just to get it slushy.... so delicious.
We also love our Angry Orchard hard cider. 
 Apples are a fall favorite for me.


Which brings us to my recipe for Apple Chili.


Apple Chili

1 lb of hamburger
1/2 cup of frozen (or fresh) onions
2 tbs garlic
2 cans of black beans
1 can of red kidney beans
1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes
1 can(14 oz) tomato sauce
1 bunch of cilantro, shredded
2  large golden delicious apples cut into bite size pieces
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp taco seasoning
1/2 tsp steak seasoning 
Salt and pepper to taste
grated cheddar cheese

In a large pot over medium heat, combine garlic and onions, cook until lightly brown.  Add hamburger.  Once hamburger is browned add seasonings: chili powder, cumin, taco seasoning and steak seasonings.
Then add apples, cilantro, beans, tomatoes and sauce.  
Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Serve with grated cheddar cheese.

Perfect for chilly fall nights
Enjoy:)
