"Basic Chili#2"

Style:   Tex-Mex
Serves:   4


  • 2 lb Ground Beef (The leaner the better)
  • 1 15oz Can Kidney Beans
  • 1 15oz can Black Turtle Beans
  • (Progresso makes good ones)
  • 1 8oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 large Yellow Onion (Chopped)
  • 5-6 cloves of garlic
  • (or about 2 teaspoons of garlic in oil)
  • Enough Olive oil to saute the onions,garlic and jalapenos12 Large Jalapeno peppers
  • (Take the seeds out before using if youĂ•re serving new England school teachers. If served in Texas, keep the seeds and add a handful of Habanero peppers).
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  • 1 tbsp Cumin
  • 1 tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 tbsp Oregano
  • 1 tsp Cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • Salt to taste


Chop the onions, peppers and garlic. Saute them in olive oil until the onions are browned. Throw in the Beef and continue cooking until the beef is browned. When done, throw the mixture along with all of the other ingredients, into a crock pot or stewing pot. In the crock pot cook for 6 to 10 hours. In the stew pot cook covered for about an hour and a half. If more liquid is needed I like to add beer, but red wine is great too.
