You can adjust just about everything in this chili to your liking. This is the way I make it.

2 lbs. hamburger browned

1 onion chopped

1 green pepper chopped

1 reg. can chopped tomatoes

1 large can tomato sauce

1 large can (or 2 reg.cans) Chili beans (don’t drain)

1 reg. can light red kidney beans, drained

1 reg. can dark red kidney beans, drained

Couple dashes Tabasco

¼ cup med. salsa (like Pace)

2 Tbls. Chili powder (I know it seems like a lot, but it is Tbls.)

Mix all ingredients together in a large pot, Simmer for 1-1 ½ hrs.

I many times make this in my crock-pot, (be sure it is a large crock-pot, this fills mine to the brim, I think I have a 5 quart pot..), on low for 8 hrs. You can also use a large (Dutch oven) pot on the stove cover and simmer for a couple of hours on low heat, stir it once in a while so it doesn’t burn on the bottom.

Serve with diced onions, shredded cheddar cheese and Frito’s corn chips.
