Chilly weather Calls for Chili

It has been chilly this week and just the right weather for a big old pot of chili. So today, I got up and got pulled out my Fix It and Forget It Cookbook. I wanted to try a different recipe, because it is good to try new things. So I perused some yummy looking recipes and then chose Colleen’s Favorite Chili by Colleen Heatwole of Burton, MI. And it smells so yummy!
Just in case you are feeling like chili, I thought I would share:
2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
1 – 1 1/2 lbs ground beef, browned and drained
2 garlic cloves, minced fine, or 1/2 tsp garlic powder
3/4 cup finely diced green peppers
2 14 1/2 – oz cans diced tomatoes, or 1 quart home-canned tomatoes
30-32 oz beans-kindey, or pinto, or mixture of the two
8-oz can tomato sauce
1/4 tsp beaumonde spice, optional
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tbsp or more, chili powder
1 tsp dried basil
1. Combine all ingredients in slow cooker.
2. Cover. Cook on low 8-12 hours, or High 5-6 minutes
Variations:
1. Add 1 Tbsp brown sugar to mixture before cooking.
2. Put in another 1 lb eans and then decrease ground beef to 1 lb.
