See’s Holiday Giveaway!

This giveaway is now over. The winners are Shilo Beedy, Jane, Jackie, Maja Meza, and James Smith. Congrats!

As usual, See’s Candies does not disappoint for the holidays. They have tons of great offerings, and there truly is something for everyone to pick from. My husband loves their white mint truffles. I personally am a fan of the Marshmallow Trees. However, there are gift baskets and gift box sets you can give to others too. There is a sampler pack, gift boxes of chocolate, and even ones that have nuts in them!  You can’t go wrong with anything you get from See’s.  It’s high quality great candies that everyone loves.

Since I love See’s and I know you all love See’s, I’ve got 5 gift cards for See’s Candies that can be used on a pound of candy.  Here’s what you need to do to win one:

Lisa’s Chili

Now, this is a very simple recipe since this was the first time I made this! We fed 6 adults and two kids with this and still had leftovers. It is not spicy, so everyone should be able to eat it (I have a 4 year old and a 1 year old so spicy is out of the question here).

Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 2 cups of elbow macaroni
  • 28 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 can kidney beans
  • 2 15 oz cans of tomato sauce
  • 1 46 oz bottle of tomato juice (this can actually be smaller however that is what I bought)
  • 1 pkg of chili seasoning
Instructions
  1. Brown ground beef and onion together and drain. Also, make the elbow macaroni noodles as directed on the box.
  2. In the meantime, put the diced tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce, and chili seasoning into a stick pot and stir together. Pour the beef and noodles in when done. Stir. Bring to a boil, then cook on low until you are ready to eat. Add in the tomato juice when and if you feel like the chili is becoming too think. I ended up using about 23 oz of the tomato juice, because we ate this during a football game.
Notes
You are able to add whatever topping you like when serving. I personally did shredded cheese while my husband added hot sauce, shredded cheese, and oyster crackers.
