Our Favorite Chili Recipe

Here it is! I LOVE this chili recipe- it tastes sweet to me with a hint of spice and is thick and tastes great with Fritos and cheese! This recipe feeds 4 people 2 bowls each.

1 lb hamburger
1/2 onion chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cloves of garlic minced

* Cook all of the above ingredients over medium heat till browned. Transfer to crockpot.
Add to crockpot...

28oz can of diced tomatoes
15 0z can red kidney beans
15 oz can of black beans
1 cup water
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or more for a spicey taste)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp onion powder

Cook all of this in a crockpot on High for 2-3 hours or Low for 4-6 hours. Near the end of cooking time, I take off the lid and add 2 tsp cornstarch to thicken. Leave the lid off and cook for a half hour more. Serve with Fritos and cheese!
As always, you can play with the brown sugar, and spices to create a taste you like! These measurements are my favorite blend! Enjoy!!

Looks good. I think I will make this when we return home, which is where I can't wait to be, btw.
