Nothing sounds better to me than a warm bowl of chili on a cool night. Chili is one of my staples when the weather turns cold. It also helps get dinner on the table, since I can make a big batch of it and eat it for 2 to 3 nights. It is a great meal served with cornbread, grilled cheese, or just a peanut butter sandwich. Basically anything you can dunk into the bowl!! I like to cook my chili in the crock pot and let it simmer for a few hours.

1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 large red onion
2 green bell peppers
2 15oz cans chili beans
2 15oz cans tomatoes with green chilies
1 9oz can green chilies
3 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 cup water

Brown beef in skillet until cooked through.
Dice onion and pepper and saute in skillet until tender.
Add beef, onion, and pepper to crock pot.
Add beans, tomatoes, chilies, spices, and water to crock pot.
Heat on high for 3 hours.

Sounds really good. I love chili on a cold night too. I like to serve it with cheese on top.
