Chili Con Carne

Randal and I have different ways of eating our chili, he has it in a bowl topped with cheese and eats it with crackers, I like it how I grew up eating it, on a bed of rice with jacobs cream crackers. Either way, this recipe makes pretty tasty chili!

1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 tablespoon candy krisp jalapenos (optional, I added them because the hubby loves them)
2 cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 cinnamon stick
Dash of ground cloves
Shake of worcester sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1.In a medium sized pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Saute onion,garlic and green pepper until soft. Add ground beef and cook until meat is browned.
2.Pour in tomatoes, tomato sauce and all of the seasonings.
3. Transfer to crock pot and cook for 6-8 hours, adding the beans for the last 2 hours.
