Baby it's cold outside...

Here in Oklahoma we have a bit of an ice event occurring outside as I speak (er...write). On days like these, chili is in order! This is my favorite, super easy recipe:

1 onion
1 lb. of ground beef
3 cans of diced tomatoes (some combination of chili seasoned & onion varieties)
1 can of corn
1 can of black beans
1 can of dark red kidney beans
1 large bottle of V8 juice (Spicy)

1. Slice onion & brown ground beef. Cook the onion with the beef.
2. Put the ground beef & onion in a large crock pot with the remaining ingredients.
3. If the crock pot is put on low early in the morning, it will be ready for supper. I have to say, though, it is better the next day.

We ladle this over a bit of crumbled cornbread and top it all off with some shredded cheddar. Perfect for a cold winter day!

Sounds like a really good recipe to me...I'm all for easy!

Chili is one of my favorite foods, long with good brisket recipes.

Always the best foods ARE those that are always better the next day... pintos, cornpone, roast/ stew...
Hmm.. [Ambles off to raid reefer for leftovers..]
