Cheesey Taco Chili on the Grill

As we remain powerless with regard to electrical power, the grill has been my main way of preparing hot meals. My hubby and kids love my taco lasagna, so last night I had the idea of blending all the ingredients of my lasagna together into a chili. This recipe includes cream cheese which makes this chili wonderfully creamy in texture. This would also be really yummy if placed in a slow cooker for a few hours...that is when electicity is available!
Take a peek at the ingredients...super easy to make too!
2lbs ground meat (I like turkey or chicken)
Chili seasonings (cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder...)
8 oz, pkg. cream cheese, softened
16 oz. jar of taco sauce
28 oz. can of whole tomatoes
1 pkg. Goya chicken bullion for flavor
8-12 oz dried pasta ( I use ditalini)
Cheddar cheese
Black beans optional
Serve with taco chips
Brown the meat in a cast iron skillet over grill flame. Add seasonings plus bullion and continue to brown. Add soft cream cheese and blend completely. Next add the taco sauce and tomatoes and heat through, then add your pasta (and black beans if using them), let simmer until pasta is cooked, about 10 minutes. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and

  4. Are you doing grocery shopping daily? How are you keeping your cheeses and meats chilled?

  5. I have so many questions too! I love that you can use the grill during this time. We always thought that would be how we would cook. Are you staying warm? My thoughts and prayers are with you.
