I believe today has been the coldest day so far this fall. And when it gets cold it's time to make a big pot of chili.
  • I start by browning and draining 2 LBs of ground beef.
In a large pot add beef and all remaining ingredients 

  • 1 29oz can of tomato sauce
  • 2 10oz cans of diced tomatoes with green chilies.
  • 1-2 16oz cans of red kidney beans.
  • 1-2 16oz cans of pinto beans

  •  1 cup Diced yellow onion (LG onion)
  • 1/4 cup celery stalk (1 stalk)

  • 2 TSP Cumin powder
  • 3 TBSP Chili powder
  • 1 1/2 TSP Black Pepper
  • 2 TSP Salt 
  • 2 Cups Water
Bring all ingredients to a simmer over low heat. Cook for 2-3 hours stirring every so often.

*** You can also make in the crockpot either set on low for 5 hrs or high for 2***

** For a spicier chili add 1/2 TSP more black pepper and 1 TBSP cayenne pepper. And for those real iron bellies add 4-6 diced Jalapeno peppers***

With about an hour left I slice up 1 whole beef smoked sausage and toss it into the pot.

When finished Top with mild or sharp cheddar cheese serve with crackers and ENJOY..
