Favorite Recipes: Award Winning Chili

We've had a few rainy, cold weeks here in North Idaho. We don't mind this type of weather and it probably bodes well for a snowy winter. Around this time of year we always turn to hearty meals and chili is one of our favorites.

We've tried a few chili recipes but they were never quite right until we found this one.

We used ground beef but we plan to try a few other proteins in there this winter. It's an easy recipe that comes out great with plenty of leftovers.

1 lb ground venison or 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey
2 onions, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 tablespoon jalapeno, finely chopped
1 (14 ounce) cans Mexican-style tomatoes ( like Rotel)
2 (8 ounce) cans tomato sauce
2 tablespoons cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika ( smoked if you can find it)
1 (14 ounce) cans kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14 ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup water

sour cream
cheddar cheese
green onion

Cook ground meat with onions and peppers in dutch oven.
Drain excess grease and add tomatoes, seasonings, and water, bring to a boil.
Add beans, cover and simmer 1-2 hours.

Serve with toppings.

Of course, we didn't have chili by itself. There's another recipe coming soon to accompany this chili!
