Black Bean Chili

Chili is so good on cold days. It warms your heart and soul. Even though it is 70 degrees here in central Virginia, winter is coming.

Black Bean Chili:

3 cups kidney beans
2 cups black beans
1 lb. hamburger
1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1 15 oz. can tomato paste
1 medium green pepper-diced
1 medium red pepper- diced
1 medium onion- finely chopped
1 tsp. cloves
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. minced garlic

Brown hamburger in skillet. Chop red pepper, green pepper and onion. Pour all ingredients into a large crock-pot. I put the cloves in a tea strainer and hung on the side of the crock-pot, so the flavors would mix, but not have cloves all mixed in with my chili. Cook on high for 5-6 hours.

If using dried beans, soak in water the day before and precook before adding to crock-pot. Otherwise you will have undercooked beans.

Make up a pan of cornbread and Enjoy!!!
