I made a very large batch of chili:
2 lbs ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
2 cans of crushed tomatoes (28oz each)
1 can tomato paste (12oz)
1 can (15oz) Dark Red Kidney Beans
1 can (15oz) Light Red Kidney Beans
1 can (15oz) Garbanzo Beans
1 can (15oz) Black Beans
1 can (15oz) Pinto Beans
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Salt
2 tsp rosemary, ground
2 tsp cumin, ground
1 tsp coriander, ground
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp black pepper, ground
3 cloves garlic, pressed
Brown ground beef, reserving drippings.
Saute chopped onion in drippings, drain.
Combine all ingredients in slow cooker and cook on low until flavors meld. (~5-6 hours minimum)
Add green peppers; maybe a bay leaf.
