Just Right Home Made Chili

You can serve it on just about anything you like. You might try it with French Fries, Baked Potatoes, Hot Dog's, Hamburgers.  The list will run as wide as your imminagation.  On a cold winter evening it is so great to curl up next to the fire place with a fresh and warm bowl of home made Chilli.  The absoulete best think about home made Chilli is that you simply adjust the ingredients to accomoniate your own taste.  When you make a nice big batch you've got plenty to freeze so you can top a plate of nachos later.

Start with some home made brown beans:

3 cups of brown beans soaked overnight in warm water.  Boil for three hours on medium heat than transfer to a 5 quart crock pot.

1 1/2 Lbs browned ground beef
2 large beef stake tomatoes crushed
4 cloves garlic
1 1/2 cups minced yellow onion
1 cup paprika
2 Tsp cumin
2 Tsp salt
3 Large jalapeno peppers diced (more if you prefer a spicier chili)

Brown meat and add to crock pot with beans.  Stir in  tomatoes and remaining ingredients.  Cook on low temp and let simmer for  four hours, or as long as you prefer.  Stir occasionally and serve up a nice warm bowl topped with cheese, sour cream, avocado or even a touch of salsa.  Of course, you don't want to forget the corn bread.
