Mexican Combo

This is an easy fix for dinner. I am pretty sure it is fairly healthy too and it tastes great! I know you will enjoy it.

Here are the ingredients: Kidney Beans, Cheddar Cheese, Chili Powder, Fritos, Onion, Green Pepper, Olives, and Hamburger.

Slice the olives. Then set aside. You won't need these until a little later on...

Chop up the Green Pepper. You can choose how big or small you want the chunks. I like them pretty small.

Chop up an Onion. Again, you choose the size but I like them small too.

Put 1 lb. of Hamburger, an Onion, and a Green Pepper in a large skillet. Turn on heat and stir until the meat is brown.

When you are done it should look something like this. And it is already making your kitchen smell good!

Now mix 1 1/2 cups of hot water with 2 Tablespoons of Chili Powder. The end result should be lookin like this! Pour it into the skillet that contains the hamburger mixture and let it simmer for 10 minutes.

I looked up simmering online and it said that to simmer is to cook something on low and cover it by slanting a lid onto the skillet (this allows the steam to escape which is supposed to be good!)

After 10 minutes add 2 cans of Kidney Beans. (Drain both cans before putting the beans in.)

Then add the pre-sliced Olives.

Next add 2-3 cups of shredded cheddar cheese. Stir and let mixture simmer for another 10 minutes.

The finished product should look something like this! It looks greasy but it is really just the chili powder and water don't be alarmed!

Put some in a bowl and add a handful of fritos and more cheese (if you like cheese). Now it is ready to eat! It tastes fresh and good. Enjoy!
