Dad's Homemade Chili

Submitted by: KISSYTINA

Introduction

That canned chili just doesn't cut it!

This homemade chili is great for a cold night or a day when you want to leave something in the Crock Pot all day. It is a little spicy, but you can adjust the spices if you want something a little milder. Add a bit of shredded cheddar cheese and some cornbread, and you have a delicious, filling, warming meal!

Ingredients

    2 lbs Lean Ground Beef
    1 medium Yellow Onion, diced
    1 medium Green Bell Pepper, diced
    1 Pablano Pepper, diced
    3 Jalapeno Peppers, diced very finely
    5 cloves Garlic, minced
    4 cans Del Monte Diced Tomatoes, No Salt Added
    5 dried, whole Bay Leaves
    8 whole Cloves
    5 Tbsp Chili Powder
    2 tsp Cayenne Pepper (Be Very Careful with this stuff. A little goes a long way!)
    1 tsp Paprika
    Salt and Pepper
    Water

Directions

Brown the ground beef in a skillet, and season with just a little bit of salt and pepper. In another skillet, cook the onions, bell pepper and pablano pepper until the onions start to soften. Add the onion and pepper mix to the ground beef. then add the jalapenos and garlic to the whole mixture.

Pour the beef mixture into a crock pot. Add the diced tomatoes, 1 can of water, and all the spices. (If you have a spice ball, use it for the bay leaves and cloves.) Mix well. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours, stirring occasionally.

Toward the end of cooking, taste the chili and adjust the seasonings to your liking. Remove the Bay Leaves and Cloves before serving.


I estimate that this recipe makes somewhere around 10-12 servings of 1.5 cups each (I actually doubled my dad's recipe for this one, so it does make A LOT!).
