i recently went home to surprise my mom on her birthday and acquired a few new cooking goodies. (i also forgot my camera there so youll have to deal with the camera phone pictures) one of the things i was very excited about was the slow cooker aka crock pot! :) the day i returned to louisville, i was in the kitchen cooking. this was the result...
mmmmmm.... chili :) i made the concoction that night and put it in the refrigerator. the next morning i turned it on low and let it cook all day while i was at work. i was so excited to come home and walk into my apartment!! the wait was torture but it was worth it...
(basically a little bit of this and a little bit of that)
28-ish ounces of diced tomatoes
(i used one can of diced tomatoes with onions and chilies in them and one can of fire roasted diced tomatoes)
1 can black beans
1 can of dark red kidney beans
(drain both cans)
1 red pepper
1 green pepper
(the green peppers were ginormous!!!)
i got to use my nicer dicer. i love this product... like, a lot! amanda makes fun of me for it but i think its amazing and use it as much as possible!!
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon dried oregano
i think thats it. you can add more of anything or add less. you can also add other things like carrots and celery but i dont really like those in my chili.
