This is my favorite chili recipe. I got it from a magazine many years ago when I was struggling to make a good chili. It's a big hit with any crowd and I've been getting requests for the recipe, so here it is!


3 lbs. ground beef
1 large onion
4 cans of beans (I use a variety)
2 cans tomato sauce or stewed tomatoes
3 cups water
1 TBSP chicken boullion
1/4 cup chili powder
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cumin
heaping tsp. fresh garlic

Brown meat and onion, rinse, and drain. Boil beans separately for about 5 minutes (to reduce the farts). Mix all ingredients together and simmer all day in a large crock pot on low; or, bring to a boil in a large pan on the stove and then reduce the heat to simmer for another hour.

Being an Idaho girl, we often have this chili over potatoes for a potato bar! SO yummy.

Mmmm...sounds like a great recipe! We often like leftover chili (when there is any) as part of our taco salad or nachos! Hadn't thought of putting it on potatoes...I'll have to try that!~
