slow cooked beef chili

mood: punctilious
listening to: jk flesh :: devoured/earthmover

so, if you look back over the course of this blog, the first recipe i ever did was chili, but i admit to myself now that i cheated when i made it that time. i used a chili seasoning packet, which i'm extremely mad that i did now, so i decided to retry this dish without any mix packets and use a slow cooker that i was given as a gift. this slow cooker made this one of the easiest things that i've ever made and allows for a lot of creativity.

2 15 oz. cans of red beans, drained
2 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce
6 oz. can of tomato paste
yellow bell pepper, diced
red bell pepper, diced
4 roma tomatoes, diced
2 jalapeno peppers, diced
2 lbs. ground beef, cooked and drained
medium onion, diced
1/4 cup of cilantro, diced

6 large garlic cloves, sliced
1 tsp. of cumin
1 tsp. of coriander
2 tsp. of chili powder
1/2 tsp. of cayenne pepper
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup of white vinegar
3 tsp. salt

- slice and dice all vegetables and place into a slow cooker
- pour beans, tomato sauce and paste as well as spices into slow cooker
- brown meat, drain and put into slow cooker
- cook on low heat for 6 hours, mixing every once in a while.

the ingredients in the recipe are enough for 6-8 people.
