Not Your MaMa’s Chili 

Sundays. Good for messy buns, oversized hoodies, dog cuddles, football, and some crockpot cooking. 

With the temperature dropping outside the past few days, I decided to heat things up inside with some spicy and steaming chili. 

The chili recipe was given to me from my dear ole’ mom. Of course, I added a little pizazz of my own. I wanted to spice it up a bit. Make things a little interesting. 

I like to call this creation…Not Your MaMa’s Chili. 

{Ingredients} 2 lbs ground beef, 1 onion, 1 green pepper, 1 can of tomato juice, 1 bottle of ketchup, 3 cans of kidney beans, brown sugar, chili powder, and a jar of jalapeños. 

{Preparation} Brown the ground beef in a pan and mix in a chopped onion and green pepper. After that is done browning, dump it in to your slow cooker. Add the can of tomato juice, about half a bottle of ketchup (can add more if you would like), the 3 cans of kidney beans, a few dashes of brown sugar, some chili powder (to your preference of spiciness – I added a good 4 to 5 tablespoons), and then the jar of jalapeños (if you feel daring – but don’t be a bunch of wussies). Let that concoction cook for about 6 hours. Stir it occasionally. Don’t forget to add some cheese once you transfer it to the chili bowls. 

Waaaalaaaa, you have some delicious chili to share with family and friends while screaming at the tv over some football. 

Trust me, you’ll need a lot of water. If you make it how I did, it will for sure be kicking your butts. I definitely added an excessive amount of chili powder. Only few were brave enough and strong enough to eat a second bowl. But on the bright side, it definitely warmed up our bellies on a “chili” day (pun intended). 

So if you like spicy and you’re looking to be a little daring, try your tongues out with Not Your MaMa’s Chili. It will become a Football Sunday Special.
