N&A's Hearty Chili
My boyfriend and I really like to make chili and we both like to make it differently. We combined our recipes and now have a new favourite!! There is everything packed into the pot, sometimes we make it spicy and other times not, depending who is joining us for dinner.
That is Maple Corn Bread in the background. The recipe for that will be up shortly. It is delicious on it's own but also really good with the chili.
1 1/2 lbs ground beef
2 onions, diced
2 bell peppers, diced (Any will do, we like to use red and orange as N doesn't like green pepper)
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 cans beans (we use red kidney beans, white kidney beans and navy beans)
1 can green lentils
1 can baked beans
1 can "Manwich"
1 can crushed tomatoes
2 - 3 tbsp chili powder
Cook ground beef in a pan and drain fat.
In a big stock pot over medium heat, cook onions for 5 minutes. Add pepper and garlic and cook for 3 minutes. Add ground beef and chili powder stir to combine. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir well. Bring to a boil and turn to low. Cover and simmer for 45min-1 hour. The longer is cooks the better it gets.
Serve with cheddar cheese and corn bread!
