Mr Meatatarian disapproves of my usual chili recipe, which is intended to mimic Wendy’s chili (it has peppers and onions and celery in it…the horror of vegetables!!)
This is what we’ve come up with for a yummy chili that we’ll both eat. I mix it up a little every time I make it, so these measurements are approximate based on what I tossed in the Crock Pot today.
1 small can of tomato sauce
3 cans of kidney beans (light red/dark red/whatever…or use cooked dried beans)
1 can of mild chili beans
1 can of Great Northern or white canellini beans
1 pound lean ground beef, cooked through
2-3 Tablespoons chili powder
1/4-1/2 Tablespoon salt
Partially drain all the cans of beans.
Throw everything in the Crock Pot and cook on low 6-8 hours or high 4-5 (I say the longer the better, get everything nice and hot and bubbly)
Serve with saltines/corn chips/cheese/sour cream/whatever you like!
