(this picture is from the internet, not a true picture of the favorite chili)
Another recipe from the Favorites cookbook. I must say I love this cookbook, so I suggest you look into getting a copy for yourself if you like the recipes from it. Its from Utah. Anyway, Dave's sister made this when I was in Chicago and it just hit the spot. Its extra yummy when served with Trader Joe's cornbread.
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 onions, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 (16-ounce) cans kidney beans, undrained
1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
2 (16-ounce) cans chili beans, undrained
2 packages chili seasoning
1 tsp basil
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
Brown ground beef in large pan. Drain fat and add onions, garlic, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes. Add rest of ingredients, bring to a boil and then turn to low heat and simmer for at least 2 hours. (Add a little water if it gets too dry)
**I halfed it when I made it (because we only have 2... and a 1/2 people eating at our house). I also left out the chili beans because I didn't have any. And it was still delish.
