There's nothing very special about this recipe, except that time after time, it is gobbled up by our family and friends. I fixed this just last Sunday for our first weekend of football get-togethers, and there was only one bowl left. This recipe makes enough to fill a BIG crockpot.
2 lbs ground beef (I also use 1 lb ground beef and 1 lb ground turkey)
One large onion, chopped
One large green pepper, chopped (you may also use colored peppers)
1 large can of diced tomatoes (28-32 oz)
2 large cans of tomato sauce (28-32 oz)
3 cans of chili beans (14 oz) washed and drained (I like to mix dark, light and white chili beans for variety)
5 T chili powder (or more to taste)
In very large pot, brown the meat, onions and peppers. Drain off any excess fat and return to stove top. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 1/2 hour. Place in a large crockpot and serve with any or all of the following.
shredded cheddar cheese
tortilla or corn chips
For those of you wondering....the football picks provided by The Moose Lodge are not indicative of nor do they represent the picks of the Crow's Nest....lol
