Too Salty, Too Greasy - Chili
Hello, I am a complete adult newbie to cooking. That is what I get for going out so much. I was making a basic chili but it tasted really salty and really greasy. What mistakes do you think I made? It can't make me sick. I have been trying to suffer through the chili.
I have done this a couple of times. It tastes OK, imagine Wendy's Chili. The Chili I made was a lot like that.
Here are my ingredient and steps.
1 lb Ground Beef, it was cheap at 85/15.
2 bell peppers, chopped, I cooked some with the ground beef.
Cooked the ground beef and peppers, added pepper and chili pepper.
Large can of tomato sauce. Some organic tomato sauce. Cooked in a pot.
(probably 8 servings? of the sauce)
Can of kidney beans
I added garlic salt, pepper and chili pepper to the stuff in the pot. And then added the meat.
I cooked this on low-medium heat for several hours.
It turned out OK, but it was still too salty. And I even washed the grease off the meat, but still seemed greasy.
I will chose a better tomato sauce next time, I think that is what could have been better. Also, they say add a raw potato to soak in a lot of the salt.
