“Oddball” chili


I had no clue what else to call this. All I know is that it involved a tomato base and chili powder and tastes shockingly good!  It was an experiment because I had leftover ground beef from my meatball venture.  HIGHLY recommend this!


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup organic tomato sauce
  • 2 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 basil leaves, chopped
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro (optional for garnish)

Brown the ground beef and remove to a bowl and set aside. Leave 2 Tbsp of the oil in the pan and saute the mushrooms and onions until the onions are translucent.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and bring to a simmer.  For the last couple of minutes, add the beef.

This could be eaten by itself or over riced cauliflower.
