I don’t know any ranches where chili isn’t on the table or fed out to the crew, especially in the winter. Here is my favorite recipe. We like mild chili, so to spice this up, add diced jalepenos and/or more pepper.

3 lbs. ground beef
2 onions
3 cans chili beans
3 15 oz cans tomato sauce
2-3 cans beans (I vary it up, usually adding a can or two of white beans, pintos, and a can of black beans.)
1 can diced chilis or 1 diced up pepper
2 tbls chili powder

Brown beef and onion. Add all other ingredients to crock pot. Cook on high for 4-5 hrs or low for 8-10 hrs. Top with shredded cheese and/or sour cream.
