Better Than Your Mama's Chili

Better Than Your Mama's Chili

Recipe Submitted by Haley Herridge 

PREP TIME : 20 MINUTES
COOK TIME : 1 HOUR
SERVINGS : 6

Directions: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F. & turn your crock pot to low heat.
  2. Cook bacon to a crisp for about 10-15 minutes in the oven. Remove and let cool. (Do not add to the crockpot - Keep this on the side to add to the top. Crispy bacon makes it so good)
  3. In a large skillet or pot over medium-high heat, sauté your diced onion, minced garlic, and diced peppers until tender. Add in your ground beef, and sausage to the skillet. Cook until brown and fully cooked. Add the mixture to the crock pot. (The sautéed veggies in the skillet make a difference)
  4. Once bacon is cooled, pat with paper towel to remove excess grease and cut into 1/2 inch pieces. Set aside for topping
  5. Pour the canned items into the crock pot. (Black beans & Kidney beans, drained and rinsed. Crushed tomatoes and diced tomatoes with juice.)
  6. Mix all of the seasonings in a bowl with a whisk. Pour mixture into the crockpot. Mix everything in crockpot well.
  7. Mix everything well. Put lid on crockpot and let simmer on low for 30 minutes- 1 hour. Or until everything is heated and simmering.
  8. Top with shredded cheese, crispy bacon, and lime hinted sour cream! To make the lime sour cream, simply squeeze the juice of 2 limes into a pint of sour cream. Pair sweet cornbread with your chili and enjoy!
