Bessie N Bambi Chili

it's finally consistently below what my loving hubby calls "Tattoeen Hot" outside, sooooo, CHILI TIME!!!!  I came up with this recipe kind of on the spot after a trip to Trader Joe's (you notice i do that a lot), so if any tweaking happens, i'll be sure to let you know.

you need:

1lb beef stew meat
1lb venison stew meat
2 cans of Organic diced tomatoes from TJ's
4 cans of Organic kidney beans from TJ's
4tbl chili powder
2tbl paprika
3 cloves of garlic
1tsp smoked salt
3-4 turns of the pepper mill
a couple dashes of 'cajun seasoning' (we use Tony's)
a dash of Hot Sauce
1 bunch of green onions

sour cream
cheese (grated, but buy it in blocks so you don't get any human hair extract.  just trust me, and read ingredient lables for the love of all that is holy)

crock pot

first thing in the morning, drain the kidney beans and rinse.  plop in the crock pot.  pour the tomatoes, juice and all, in the pot, and add 1 can of water (the tomato size cans).  add the spices, and the meat.  turn onto low for 2-3 hours, then to high for another 6.  about 5 min before serving, chop the green onions and put the whites in the crock pot, reserving the greens.  after 5 minutes, ladle into bowls and serve with a dollup of sour cream, a sprinklin of grated cheese, and add some of the reserved green onion.

serve on a cuddly night with a pint of beer.

nom nom nom.
