I had a craving for some chili, so I went online to look for recipes. Well, they were demanding all kinds of ingredients and almost made me give up. So here's a easy recipe that only needs a few ingredients, but tastes delicious. This is for a stove top chili, but I think it will work in a crock pot or slow cooker. This makes roughly 12 servings.
2 pounds lean hamburger
48 ounces of tomato sauce
1 whole vidalia onion
2 whole green peppers
2 cans of red kidney beans
1 can of pinto beans
1 clove of fresh garlic (you only need 3 bulbs of it)
2 tablespoons of crushed red pepper
2 packets of chili seasoning
Brown the hamburger and drain the grease.
Chop onion and add to pot.
Remove seeds from green peppers and chop. Add to pot.
Drain the kidney and pinto beans and add to pot.
Finely chop the 3 bulbs of garlic and add to pot.
Add the tomato sauce.
Add the burger.
Add the crushed red pepper and the chili seasoning. Stir until well blended.
Get it to a boil. Then simmer with a lid for 6-8 hours stirring occasionally.
DO NOT WORRY. IT LOOKS LIKE THERE'S NOT ENOUGH SAUCE AT FIRST, BUT THERE IS.
Now this isn't a spicy chili. You can add more kick to it if your family enjoys a spicy chili. Or cut out the crushed red pepper if you want a really mild chili. This is a medium chili.
Serve steaming hot with shredded cheese, sour cream, chives, and oyster crackers if you wish! Nothing is better to curl up with than a nice big hot bowl of delicious chili!
