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.
