Dinners Under $10 – Cheesy Hash Brown Chili

dinners under $10 Cheesy Hash Brown ChiliTime for our third Rachael Ray under $10 dinner recipe! Yesterday’s recipe was Chipotle Pork Quesadillas! Today’s recipe is Cheesy Hash Brown Chili! I will post the final recipe tomorrow 🙂

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ cup tomato paste
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • One 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • One 1-pound bag frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 can beans
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  1. 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 backing dish.
  2. Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 400°. 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 potatoes are cooked through and the chili is bubbling, about 35 minutes.

You’re welcome 🙂 The great thing about it is it is inexpensive normally, but tomato paste, diced tomatoes, hash browns, and cheese are common coupon items – so you can save even more!

The directions indicate that beans are added but none are listed in the recipe. I am assuming a can of chili style beans…correct?

Oops, thanks for letting me know! You can use any beans you want, but I like chili or kidney beans best for this recipe.
