Fixing Chili Help
Made a big batch of my usual chili for a party, and now think it's too light on the ground beef. Has anyone ever added beef after the fact? I figure if I cook it up, season, and stir in it may be ok. Not serving till tomorrow evening. Thoughts?
Go ahead and brown the ground beef and, in the process, include some of the spices that you used in the original batch. Then, reheat your original batch and add the additional ground beef. Simmer it for a few minutes. That'll get the job done. Just make sure that both the added ground beef and the dish you're adding it to are about the same temperature when they are combined.
