Meals in Minutes 4/4/11

Good Monday morning readers, Kara here with today's recipe. I'm not a huge fan of Rachel Ray, but she does have some great recipe's! Today I want to share one with you, that you can feed a family of 4, for less that $10.00! Awesome right?? Yeah I think so too :) Cheesy Hash brown Chili. Here are the ingredients you will need.


  • 2 tablespoons EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 15-ounce can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 1-pound bag frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 400°F. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven.
In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, chili powder and cumin and cook, stirring, until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the tomato paste. Add the beef and cook, breaking up the meat, for 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
Add the beans and the tomatoes with their juice and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, partially cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Transfer to an 8-by-11-inch baking dish.
In a large bowl, combine the potatoes and cheese. Scatter the potato mixture over the chili. Place the baking dish on a baking sheet and bake until the potatoes are cooked through and the chili is bubbling, about 35 minutes.

I think my family will be trying this sometime this week, whenever I decide to go to the store lol. Everything you need can  be fond HERE I do hope you enjoy this recipe, and as always, please stop by and tell us what you think, if you loved it, hated it, or loved to hate it, we LOVE to hear from you! Have a great day!
