This week’s recipe is Crock Pot Chili by Brett at Mama Loves Her Bargains that is sure to warm you on a chilly night!
Chili is one of my Brett’s favorite dishes to make when the weather gets cooler. It’s full of protein, and such a comfort food for us. This is more or less the chili her mom although some things have changed a bit over the years.
1 lb ground beef (or turkey)
1lb sweet Italian sausage (if you like more heat, use spicy!)
1 15oz can dark red kidney beans, rinsed
1 15 oz can red kidney beans, rinsed
1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed (I forgot to get some of these so they aren’t included in the photo above)
2 large cans Tomato Sauce (we prefer Hunts brand)
1 small can tomato paste
Chili seasoning to taste
Hot peppers- to taste (We leave these in LARGE pieces, so that the kids don’t end up accidentally eating one)
3 bell peppers and 1 medium red onion, sauteed to soften
