No I didn't spell it wrong. I meant it's that time of year when you want warm and cozy. So you make chili! One of our favorite tailgating meals is when we have our annual chili cook off. My husband Ron makes the hot chili con carne and I decided to share it with you. We make it hot, but you can tone it down by using **mild or medium where I have 'HOT'.
2 lbs Meat (1 lb hot ground sausage, 1lb ground beef) Browned.
4 Lg. Cans (26 oz) Kidney Beans (Drain 2 cans)
4 small cans Diced green chili
4 cans Rotel Hot** Diced Tomatoes
1 Lg can (12 oz) Tomato Paste
1 Lg. Yellow onion
Add all ingredients to the Crockpot. Season with black pepper and Add either Cayenne or Hot chili power --to your taste.
Cook on low for about 10 hours or high for about 5 to 6 hours. Serve in bread bowls.
Great with fresh chopped onion and grated cheddar cheese sprinkled over the top. We had this last Saturday at our Anniversary tailgating and I believe it turned out the best ever!
When it's snowing outside, this is great to have!
