Family Favorite Chili

Bob’s sister Laurie and kids are here visiting tonight from California.  Made this Betty Crocker chili and another soup for dinner and some tasty cornbread (recipe for other soup and cornbread to follow soon).  Good snow day dinner!

2 pounds ground beef

1 large onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, pressed

1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained

1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce (I ended up using three 8 oz cans so a total of 24 oz)

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 (15 or 16 oz) can kidney or pinto beans, drained and rinsed  (I used 2 cans of pinto beans)

shredded cheddar cheese and Fritos if desired

Cook beef and onion over medium heat until brown.  Mix beef, onions and all ingredients except beans, cheese and Fritos in crock pot.  (I just add the beans here as well instead of waiting for later like the recipe says.)  Cook on low 6 – 8 hours or on high 3 – 4 hours.  Stir in beans.  Cook on high 15 – 20 minutes.  Top with cheese and Fritos to make “Frito boats” if desired.
