Simple Cooking - David's Chili
1 pound ground venison or beef
1 can of diced tomatoes (14oz)
1 cup of salsa
1 can of black beans (14 oz)
1 sweet yellow onion chopped
1 green bell pepper chopped
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 jalapeño pepper chopped, if you like it spicy.
Brown meat do not drain. Drain black beans. Add beans, onion, and bell pepper (and jalapeño if you want it) to the skillet with the meat. Stir fry until mixed well. Pour mixture into crock pot. Add the rest of the ingredients (salsa, diced tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, salt). Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours. (the longer it cooks the better). Stir periodically. Serve with sharp cheddar cheese, Ritz crackers and sour cream.
**What is great about this is you can vary ingredients to taste. There are tons of different types of salsa, diced tomatoes, and even beans you can use to tweak the flavor/texture. This recipe is plenty for a family of four, and its easy to double as long as your crock pot is big enough.
