 This was my first time making chili on my own and it turned out pretty good. I only cooked it in the crock pot for a couple hours and it was alright (Though maybe you would only need 1 can of tomato sauce if you left it in all day, because it gets liquidy from the steam.). Also, if you're going to cook it for a short time in the crock pot, make sure to cook your onions with your ground beef because they tasted a little raw to me. 

We had this with a delicious side of corn bread. Because for me, corn bread and chili are a perfect combo.

1 lb ground beef
2 garlic cloves 
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp salt
1 can kidney beans (drained)
1 can pinto beans (drained)
2 small cans tomato sauce
1 can stewed tomatoes
1 cup onion, diced (I used 1 small onion)
1/2 cup green pepper, diced (I used a whole green pepper)
2 TBS chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1 dash worshestershire sauce

1.Brown ground beef in garlic.
2. Put everything in crockpot
3. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours (or on high for 4-5)*

4. Top with some cheese, sour cream and fritos.

** You could also cook this in a stock pot for 1.5 hours to avoid the raw onion taste, and everything would come together nicely.

  1. Chili and cornbread, it sounds like your mother had some influence on you.
