Chili equals YUM!


Yum, we made chili yesterday and boy was it good!

Here's the recipe:
Homemade chili seasoning:
1 TB unbleached flour -- or: all-purpose
3 TB dried onions
3 TB chili powder
1 ts seasoned salt
1/2 ts crushed dried red pepper(or more depending on how spicy you like it)
2 ts sugar
2 TB ground cumin
This equals one packet of store bought.
Add to:
1 1/4 lb ground meat browned (I used Amy's local grassfed)
3 cans chili beans ( that beans with sauce on them) 2 mild, one medium
1TB brown sugar
2tsp powdered mustard
2 cans fire roasted tomatoes(I used Muir Glen)
1 can tomato paste
1 small can V8 or tomato juice(4oz)
2 cloves garlic finely minced
dash of cinnamon( just a tiny bit)

Directions: Brown hamburger and garlic together. Place in Crockpot, add remaining ingredients.
Cook on high one hour and low until ready to serve (2-4 hours) or on low if cooking all day. Also if I plan on cooking this all day I often add 1 cup shredded carrots.
Serve with sour cream, fresh diced onion, cheddar cheese, and crackers. YUMMMMMY!
