Bob’s Chili T & T
1 lb. ground beef 1 med. Onion, finely chopped 1 clove garlic, minced 1 (6 oz.) tomato paste 1 (28 oz.) can crushed tomatoes 2 c. water 1 (15 oz.) can EACH kidney, pinto & chili beans 2 tsp. chili powder 1 tsp. cumin salt & pepper to taste
Toppings: shredded cheese sour cream
In a large saucepan brown beef over med. heat. When it begins to change color, add onion and garlic and cook until meat is browned and onion is wilted. Drain off excess fat. Add seasoning ingredients to pan; combine well and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, stir and cook 30 minutes. Let sit for a few minutes before serving. *I also add 1 finely chopped green bell pepper to the meat and onion mixture and brown. Instead of a can of crushed tomatoes, I diced up 5 med. tomatoes. I also added ½ tsp. crushed fresh garlic. I added all the chili ingredients to the crock pot and let simmer for 3 hours on high and then 2 hours on low.
