This is definitely not the way my mom taught me! It is very hearty and it makes a lot!! (You can cut in half!) It is easy and simple. Good thing is you can always freeze this for a cold day!!! It also has a lot of fiber!!! (Definitely not Paleo approved!)
2 cans of red beans
2 cans of dark red kidney beans
2 cans of light red kidney beans
2 cans of crushed tomatoes (seasoned if you like)
2 lbs of ground hamburger
2 green bell peppers
1 red bell pepper
1 yellow/orange bell pepper
1 large onion (yellow or white)
Chili powder – to your taste
Other seasonings to your taste
Open and drain all your beans, getting the oils off of them. Put in crockpot. Add crushed tomatoes, cut up peppers, cut up onions and chili powder to the crockpot. Cook on slow for 7-8 hours. It will cook down and make a sauce.
Two hours before you are ready to serve, brown hamburger and season (chili powder and your desired seasonings) on the stove. Drain grease into a container. Then add to crockpot. This will make the hamburger not taste so rubbery!
Cook for at least two more hours on low to combine all the ingredients and seasonings.
Serve with or without toppings!!!!
