StoneGable chili is a little sweet... a little spicy. It certainly is a little different and delicious! I married a family recipe with a gourmet recipe I love. Serve it over rice and sprinkle some good cheddar cheese and crushed tortillas over the top. YUMMY! Pass the sour cream and chopped green onions too!

2 lbs lean ground beef

1 TBS olive oil

1 large onions, peeled and chopped

2 large cloves garlic, minced finely

1 large green or red pepper, chopped

1 large can of stewed tomatoes

1 can kidney beans or black beans, rinsed and drained (I combine the two)

2/3 - 1 cup of catsup

1/2 -2/3 cups chili sauce

2 TBS chili powder

2 tsp ground cumin

salt and pepper

a sprinkle of taco seasonings from a packet (if I have it, I use it)

In a large dutch oven heat olive oil on medium high heat. Add onions and green peppers and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add ground beef and continue to cook until browned.

Add can of stewed tomatoes, ketchup, chili sauce, kidney beans, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and a sprinkle of taco seasoning. Stir to mix.

Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for 40 minutes. Add a little water if the chili gets too thick.

To make the slow cooker version, brown meat, onions and peppers. Add the ingredients in the slow cooker and cook for 6-8 hours on low.
