Super Bowl Chili

We didn't really care who won or lost the Super Bowl this year, but we still got together with a couple friends to watch the game. I'm sure we paid much closer attention to the commercials (some good, some definitely bad) and really didn't see too many plays of the game.

Something I make a lot when friends come over is a big pot of chili. It's too hard to make chili for two people, so gatherings is really the only time we get to have it. Here's my recipe for a "super" bowl of chili.

2 1/2 - 3 lbs of ground beef, browned
2 cans red kidney beans, drained
2 cans chili-ready tomatoes
2 small jars chili sauce
2 medium cans tomato sauce
1 medium white onion, finely chopped
1/2 to 3/4 cup water

Seasoning for mild chili:
2 tablespoons smoked tobasco sauce
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 tablespoon Lawry's seasoning salt
1/2 tablespoon garlic pepper

Seasoning for hot chili:
1/2 to 3/4 bottle of smoked tobasco sauce
1 tablespoon of chili powder
1/2 tablespoon Lawry's seasoning salt
1/2 tablespoon garlic pepper
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Shredded cheese of your choice
Sour cream
Green onions, sliced
Oyster crackers

1)Combine all ingredients in a large crock pot.
2) Choose seasoning level and add spices to crock pot mixture.
3) Cook on high for 3 hours or on low for 5-6, stirring occasionally.
4)When ready, serve in bowls and add toppings as desired.

I hope you all give this recipe a try. It is a crowd pleaser! You can definitely make this the night before, store it in the fridge and plug it in in the morning - just increase the time in the crock pot since it will have to heat up more. You can also freeze any left overs that you have - if you have any. :) Happy cooking!
