Retro Cooking Month - My favorite Recipe - Crockpot Chili

This is another cold weather favorite.  I found this one online originally, but I've tweaked it with my own additions.

You Will Need:
  • 2 lbs lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 large green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • garlic powder to taste
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  •  1 Tbs Hot Sauce (you can leave this out if too much spice bothers you)
  • 2 cans (approx. 16 oz each) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (16 oz) tomato puree
  • 1 can (16 oz) kidney beans
  • 1 can (16 oz) black beans
To Make:

1.Brown ground beef in a large skillet.  Drain and place beef into crockpot.
2. In skillet, saute chopped onion and green pepper in olive oil (or the grease from the beef - I don't use it to make the recipe a little healthier).
3. Mix beef, onion and green pepper into the crockpot and add spices; let stand 1 hour on low heat.
4. Add tomatoes, tomato puree, beans.
5. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.

Oh, I soo love chili! I usually use pinto beans in mine (mostly because I just love pinto beans, lol!).

I also like to change it up a bit once in a while by throwing in a small box of frozen corn and some cooked elbow noodles and a pinch of oregano - chili mac!
